"THE WINDOWLESS VAN LOOKS LIKE A RAPE VAN"


The male actor who made the comment wasn't fired but the recipient of his caustic, sexist remarks was.



CBS confirmed the allegations by Eliza Dushka and settled a lawsuit for over nine million dollars.



The male actor still wasn't fired.


"In front of the cast and crew, Mr. Weatherly remarked on her appearance, and made a rape joke and a comment about a threesome. Shortly after Ms. Dushku confronted the star about his behavior, she was written off the show.

"CBS, agreed to pay her $9.5 million, roughly the equivalent of what Ms. Dushku would have earned if she had stayed on as a cast member for four seasons."

"CBS CEO Les Moonves, who was himself accused of sexual harassment, as well as assault." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/pauley-perrette-sasha-alexander-defend-michael-weatherly-1169804/


Might the above be the reason Weatherly wasn't fired?


Steven Spielberg had been one of the show's executive producer until this incident and as the result of Weatherby's behavior, severed ties with the CBS show.


"CBS chief Moonves was accused publicly of sexual misconduct this summer in August and resigned under pressure in September."[2018] https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2018/12/05/les-moonves-allegedly-destroyed-evidence-sexual-misconduct-inquiry/2210456002/


The male actor still wasn't fired.


What happened to Times Up?


"By helping change culture, companies, and laws, TIME’S UP Now aims to create a society free of gender-based discrimination in the workplace and beyond. We want every person — across race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender identity, and income level — to be safe on the job and have equal opportunity for economic success and security. TIME’S UP Now is an independent, nonpartisan, and not-for-profit charitable organization."

What about Me Too movement?




We apparently have not learned from Weinstein indictment.


The male actor still hasn't been fired. In fact "Doctor Jason Bull and his team are headed back to court in the 2021-22 network television season. CBS has renewed the Bull TV show for a sixth season."


Note that the majority of comments here are from women. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/bull/s05


Question. How can women ignore what transpired considering all that has occurred in the toxic industry?
