DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - While Hollywood is reeling from sex abuse allegations, more actors are having allegations leveled against them.
Since the outing of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, more people are going public with accounts of rape, homosexual abuse and silence, despite the fact that it has been well known for years that Hollywood is a sex-for-success environment.
Now, Jeremy Piven, Andy Dick and producers for the show The Bachelor are being accused of sexual harassment. They are joining an increasingly infamous group of Hollywood elite like Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Matt Damon who have allegedly known for years of Weinstein's sexual abuse and did nothing about it — ultimately leading to its cover-up — or are being accused of sex abuse themselves.
Church Militant's Carmen Allard worked in Hollywood for 20 years between 1986–2006 and confirmed that although she had never directly seen or been involved in any sexual abuse, it was well known by everyone in the industry, that it and the misogynistic sex-for-success environment, was alive and well.
It's not just female actors like Rose McGowan, however, who are coming out with non-consensual sex accusations. A story by the Guardian is revealing that homosexual Hollywood bigwigs have been preying on underage boys for years.
Alex Winter, one of the stars in the 1990's Bill & Ted movies and The Lost Boys, is revealing he was abused by men in the industry before he was 13 years old, saying, "I don't know of any boys in any pocket of the entertainment industry that do not encounter some form of predatory behavior. ... It's really not a safe environment."
He continued, "There's nothing more terrifying to someone who is holding on to that history and that PTSD than to finally come forward and make those claims only to not be accepted," adding, "My perpetrator was never caught ... I had to live with that."
Kevin Spacey, after being accused of attempted rape of an actor who was 14 years old at the time, has declared himself as gay in an attempt to justify his behavior.
Bryan Singer, the producer behind the X-Men movie franchise was accused in 2014 of sexual abuse of underage males. A Hollywood studio executive commented, "Bryan's always had a reputation of being with guys that look young," adding, "Whether they were underage or not, I have no idea. [But] for 20 years, he's had young guys around him, whether they're assistants or friends. However, they were described to you, they were always around."
