this guy should have fled to france where they don’t mind pedophiles so much, but he stupidly decided to stay in chicago. besides being a reprehensible person, he’s also a low functioning moron who somehow has a lot of fans who give him money still.
the series does a really good job of showing how fucked up everything that touched this story is. the girls’ parents/family are often complicit or willfully blind. the entourage he employs is reprehensible for covering up his shenanigans. the fanbase that supported him through multiple allegations is pathetic. the media and celebrities that continued to support and advocate for him… in the series pretty much everyone gets a hard look and everyone is shown for the part they played in him being able to continue to do this and continue to have success in the industry. this is the kind of stuff that really turns me off of the hollywood/entertainment industry. you have people like lady gaga who claim to be supporters of survivors, yet they collaborate with a known sexual predator because…? because she likes his music? because she sees the commercial appeal of the crossover? according to her it’s because she was in a dark place in her life. take that for what you will. i don’t know what it means. i think you basically have to assume all entertainers are attention whores and liars unless proven otherwise.
the series does a great job of exposing all that the sexual abuse was and all that went into allowing it to happen. sad stuff.
