    So while the Trumpets cast this as a purely partisan smear, which is fair game, really, and not at all misleading as a generality, it shouldn't be forgotten that it wasn't some ballsy conservative who took on the king when he still had his scepter.
    Seth MacFarlane Opens Up About His 2013 Harvey Weinstein Oscars Joke, Condemns “Abhorrent” Abuse Of Power





    Yes, sometimes Democrats have integrity and balls with regard to their beliefs-- even *gasp* actors!

    Good on Seth.

    But will this be merged with the rest of the Weinstein/Affleck posts?

    It's fucking sad that everything has become partisan. From what team a sexual predator is on, to mass murderers. We're all in this thing together.

    I mean it started with a joke for Cosby case as well didn't it - maybe that is what he was going for and when it didn't catch on he just abandoned it rather than say what he knew?

    Every single news story is a competition between all you partisan hacks.

    Now if only Hillary Clinton(2020 nominee) will step up and be on the right side as well.

    Doubt she touches this one, though.

    Actually, literally triggered that the 'right' are point scoring your ass on a platter.

    Take it easy micky.

    For the record this whole partisan thing has came about for a few reasons;
    -The Weinstein & Democrat connection (Obamas daughter interning at his work place, the money Weinstein gave towards Obamas & Hilarys campaigns). Hilary has condemned all Women who voted for Trump, called him an enemy to Womanhood...whilst she was in part funded by this creep and she also happens to be married to another, people hate the double standards and hypocrisy of it all.

    -The fact many hollywood celebrities have been lambasting Trump non-stop, but took their sweet old time to condemn Harvey Weinstein, they waited till he was fired and they were getting backlash for keeping silent on the issue before releasing short generic condemnation statements. The likes of Meryl Streep & Jennifer Lawrence have derided Trump non-stop but they took their time to release a mildly condemning generic statement on Harvey and his behavior after being pressurized into doing so.

    -The talk show comedians who have mocked Trump for months on end...but haven't mentioned Harvey in any of their sketches or jokes. Even though this story is big news right now and showcases the sexual mistreatment of Women, Men and Children in 'Hollywood'.



    It's a shame this whole issue has become political, but such is the current climate. Trumps supporters saw the Hilary & Obama - Weinstein connection, then they saw the staunch anti-Trumpites like Streep & Lawrence keep their traps shut and saw the chance to showcase the hypocrisy and score political points.

    gotta be honest didn't realize McFarlane was a known liberal

    although I'm basing that solely off the type of humor found in Family Guy and especially TED movies

    He does seem in interviews like a relatively normal, level headed cat tho.

    Seth MacFarlane is a treasure. Scary to think we almost lost him on 9-11.

    The most harrowing thing I've learnt of him is that he dated Emilia Clarke (Daenerys from GOT). Shit had me scratching my head.

    exactly, it doesnt take a genius to figure out that the most powerful man in hollywood commands such authority.

    same joke can be done at virtually any workplace, replace weinstein with whoever the CEO is.

    This. Things can fall apart easy if someone needs for cover is to be on one side or the other of the political spectrum.
