Another misrepresentation by obveeus. Not one of the five women accusing
Louis C.K. said it happened in the workplace. None was held against her
will. In some of the cases, he only talked about doing something
disgusting but didn't follow through.
Spacey? The workplace stuff, if there was any, could have involved
actors at the Old Vic, but that had nothing whatsoeve to do with Anthony
Rapp's accusation. Even most of the Weinstein stuff isn't "workplace".
