Mainstream Media Alludes to Hollywood Pedophile Problem

Written by Joe Scudder

With the Kevin Spacey story revealed to the public, a “rampant” Hollywood pedophile problem seems a lot more credible.

The media is almost admitting to the Hollywood pedophile problem. What they will do is mention “men sexually abusing boys,” and then try to make you forget what they acknowledged using a lot verbiage about “sexual harassment.” Witnesses like Corey Feldmen are rarely mentioned in this connection.

But what they reveal is far worse than what people think of when they talk about sexual harassment.

The Guardian reports, “Hollywood actors speak of ‘rampant’ problem of male abusers targeting men.” While the headline says “men” the first sentence of the story says “boys”!

Hollywood has a “rampant” and “pervasive” problem of men sexually abusing boys and young men, according to actors and lawyers who are speaking up about misconduct and harassment in the wake of an allegation against actor Kevin Spacey.

“It’s a very taboo subject,” said Alex Winter, an actor and director who said he was sexually abused as a pre-teen child actor. “I don’t know of any boys in any pocket of the entertainment industry that do not encounter some form of predatory behavior. … It’s really not a safe environment.”


“It’s a pervasive problem in Hollywood,” said Los Angeles attorney Toni Jaramilla, who has represented men in the entertainment industry in sexual harassment cases. She said that men can be coerced into sex or assaulted in professional contexts and are often afraid to speak out: “The common challenge is the fear of not being believed and the fear of having the situation turned around against them, to suggest that they are instigating it, or they are finding opportunities to sleep their way into a role.”
