Hollywood hypocrisy is a textbook example of groupthink. Imagine, taking down the NFL and Hollywood in one year.
Hollywood director James Toback’s life has just turned the corner for the worse, and there’s nothing he can do about it. Thirty women have come forth and claimed sexual harassment according to an LA Times article.
We’ve seen the backside and dark corners of Entertainment for decades portrayed in movies and bio-flicks, are we shocked to see it all is so true or shocked that a mob mentality of sorts is bringing it all to life?
Out of all the so-called Hollywood “victims” Corey Feldman is the only one I have any sympathy for right now. He tried to blow the whistle years ago and was shot down. It’s little wonder that he and his late best friend Cory Haim turned to drugs to cope. So very sad for him.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, on several occassions Toback would invite women, usually in their 20s, to his hotel room where he would dry-hump them or masturbate in front of them, ejaculating into his pants or onto their bodies and then walk away.
Starr Rinaldi, who was an aspiring actress, told the Times that she was approached by Toback 15 years ago in Central Park.
He always wanted me to read for him in a hotel or come back to his apartment, like, “How serious are you about your craft?”
‘And the horrible thing is, whichever road you choose, whether you sleep with him or walk away, you’re still broken,’ Rinaldi said. ‘You have been violated.’
The majority of the women who spoke to the Times recall Toback, now 72, telling them that he could make them stars and all they needed to do was ‘trust him’.
None of the women contacted the police at the time out of fear of retaliation. Some of the women even claim that Toback threatened them.
Toback, who is married to Stephanie Kempf, has denied the allegations, claiming that he had never met any of the women or, if he did, it ‘was for 5 minutes and have no recollection’, according to the Times.
He reportedly told the newspaper that it was ‘biologically impossible’ for him to engage in the behavior described by the women because he has diabetes and a heart condition.
It seems to me the overriding reason that these women didn’t report this abuse at the time is that the poisonous culture of the movie industry was such they were sure they wouldn’t be believed. AND they would have harmed their careers, so who blames them for staying silent.
Now, the floodgates have opened, it’s not surprising that they have finally found the courage and I wish them well. These slime and objectionable individuals need their comeuppance.
Look for liberals to spin this into “well these guys are so ugly this was the only way they could score.” If you live in a glass house, you should never throw stones. Hollywood was throwing boulders for decades. I am sure there is a lot more that will come out of this shakeup. Hollywood does not speak for the American people, and they are learning this the hard way.
A new drama is about to start, and I’m ready with my popcorn.
