    it was harassment (as opposed to sexual assault). it's not like you, currently, can be jailed for that. the usual consequence of this is a ruined reputation. and I totally think that this will ruin his reputation. now if he used his influence to get any of these women fired, he should definitely be sued.

    The case against Bryan Singer has taken a weird bunch of turns .

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ed-papers.html


    - The wildest is that Singer was never personally served and that someone on his estate was given the papers . Because the guy who served them stood on a pickup truck and started yelling at whoever was there. The guy finally walked over and told him he takes care of the estate and was given the papers. The court has allowed the case to go to trial.


    - The defendant just emerged from bankruptcy court after filing a few years ago. Anyhow as he claims he just suddenly "remembered" this entire situation.

    - Singer it appears has a drinking problem and has disappeared off sets for a couple days. Once in 2006 for Superman Returns , once during X-Men : Apocalypse and during the Freddie Mercury bio film. He was fired by 21st Century Fox for that last one.

    Uh, pretty sure lifting up a woman's skirt against her will is more than harassment.

    has anyone accused him of assault? it's being reported as harassment and inappropriate behavior. the moment they call it assault, I will be fully onboard that he needs jailtime.

    If that's the case, then I wouldn't be surprised if accusations eventually come against the likes of Bobby Flay or Emeril Lagasse.

    Chris Hardwick is being raked over the coals due to Chloe Dykstra's not so subtle calling out of him in an online essay.

    So no pizza dough rolls I guess.

    Well honestly she works in small doses and many have said Brown gets annoying as a fan of the show. I'd say ...hand it to Will Wheaton. He has that nerdy vibe and has done shows like this.

    Yeah but apparently Wheaton is no saint either. It will go to a female host no doubt. No way they respond to this event by handing the job to another white male.
