Whoopi “it isn’t rape-rape” Goldberg, Woody “I married my daughter” Allen, Martin “Jesus slept with Mary Magdalene” Scorsese, Monica Bellucci, David Lynch, Michael Mann, and Tilda Swinton are just a portion of the Hollywood crowd that are clamoring for the release of Roman Polanski who is being held in Switzerland waiting extradition to the United States.
Roman Polanski is on the run from the law for his rape of a 13 year girl in 1977 when he was a young 44 years of age.
Yesterday a former Hollywood starlet, Charlotte Lewis known for costarring opposite Eddie Murphy in The Golden Child, came out in a news conference that she was raped when she was 16 years of age in Paris by Roman Polanski when he was 50 years old.
Her reasons for coming out now?
Her disgust at how Hollywood is defending Roman Polanski and minimizing his offenses.
Still there are many in Hollywood that after hearing about Charlotte Lewis are defiant in their stance that immoral sexual behavior should not be penalized. Woody Allen came out and said “enough is enough“.
“It’s something that happened many years ago… he has suffered…. He has paid his due,” Allen told French radio station RTL.
“He’s an artist, he’s a nice person, he did something wrong and he paid for it. They (his critics) are not happy unless he pays the rest of his life. They would be happy if they could execute him in a firing squad,” he said.
There are others in Hollywood who refuse to defend the indefensible such as Michael Douglas who believe that Roman Polanski should pay the price for his sexual assault of a minor.
Roman Polanski’s lawyers have threatened Charlotte Lewis with legal action if she continues to allege Roman Polanski raped her.
Hollywood is still defiant and diabolically evil.
