The mainstream media has resorted to covering up and downplaying Hollywood sexual assault allegations — but Feldman was prepared to blow it wide open.
As the world begins to see Hollywood’s dark underbelly for the first time, those who attempt to downplay or otherwise cover for the predators are being exposed as complicit in the abuse. Because their facade is collapsing, those in the mainstream who could once look the other way in the face of abuse or smear the alleged victims are now frantically attempting to maintain the narrative.
On Monday, Kevin Spacey was accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy. While he claimed he didn’t remember it, he did apologize, noting that it likely could’ve happened. In this same apology, Spacey came out of the closet as gay.
Upon the news of Spacey’s admission via apology for child sexual abuse, the Praetorian Guard, aka the mainstream media, quickly came to his defense. Massive headlines from nearly every mainstream outlet ran with the news about Kevin Spacey—but not the news he apologized for allegedly sexually assaulting a child. The media conveniently hid the pedophilia allegations behind Spacey’s gayness—and then blamed everyone else for it, saying people hate his gayness.
Running with the headline “Why are people angry about Kevin Spacey coming out?” the BBC attempted to downplay the allegations of sexual assault and instead attempted to paint those who want answers on those allegations as anti-gay.
The BBC was not alone either. Reuters downplayed the sexual assault allegations too. When they ran their piece on the apology for Spacey allegedly sexually assaulting a boy—which was made in the exact same post about being gay—Reuters chose to run the headline “Actor Kevin Spacey declares he lives life as a gay man.” The reputable news source conveniently glossed over the fact that he apologized to Anthony Rapp for lude and lascivious contact with the then-14-year-old boy.
n fact, the first two paragraphs of the story say nothing at all of the apology.
After years of refusing to address rumors about his sexuality, Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey said on Sunday he has chosen to live his life as a gay man.
Spacey, 58, who won Oscars for “The Usual Suspects” and “American Beauty,” made the declaration in a post on Twitter.
