#MeToo Leader Accused of Paying Off Her Own Accuser Points to Deceased Boyfriend to Defend Herself. It’s Bad.

Asia Argento, one of the first accusers of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was hit with her own allegations this week, for allegedly paying off her former child co-star Jimmy Bennett, who claims they had a sexual encounter when he was 17 and she was 37.

Bennett, who once played her son in a movie, said the actress gave him over $300,000 to keep quiet about the encounter, for which he says there is photographic evidence.

The details were released in a New York Times expose which ran Monday.

Argento came out with a statement in response to the allegations on Tuesday, which was shared via Twitter by journalist Yashar Ali:

While claiming she paid Bennett off to keep quiet about a threat of blackmail, she pointed to her late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain, who took his own life earlier this year, claiming it was his idea to pay Bennett off.

This was a claim that many felt to be in very poor taste, as Bourdain cannot tell us his side of the story.

Many also suggested that, if Argento and Bennett never engaged in sexual intercourse, why did Bourdain and Argento agree to pay him off? $300,000 is no small sum, even for wealthy celebrities like Bourdain and Argento.

At the end of the day, the creed of the #MeToo movement, as well as opponents of sexual abuse and assault for decades, has been to “believe all victims.”

Ought we to do that now, or do we suddenly realize that when accusations are made, it’s important to wait until all the facts are on the table?

I don’t know if Argento or Bennett is telling the truth, but perhaps it’s time we stop judging a matter before all the facts are known.

Save conservative media!

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
