Steven Seagal was quick to shut down an interview after a reporter brought up a rape allegation made against the actor. Seagal appeared on BBC’s Newsnight Thursday and host Kirsty Wark brought up the #MeToo movement. Wark then says, “You’ve been…
We probably don't need to tell you that David Eason is not a good guy.
He's a bigot and a shameless opportunist, and there's very good reason to believe he's guilty of child abuse.
But despite his many, many flaws, as far as anyone can tell, David is not guilty of viewing, producing, or distributing child porn.
So for once, the former Teen Mom 2 star's latest temper tantrum might actually be justified …

Rose McGown has spoken out on the latest sexual assault allegation to rock Hollywood.
But this one is a little bit different.
As previously reported, it has come out this week that Asia Argento agreed to pay $ 380,000 to a former child actor accusing her of sexual assault in 2013.
Citing documents submitted to The New York Times anonymously – and verified with three people familiar with the case – the bombshell report claims that Argento agreed to this settlment just a few months ago.
She did so after Jimmy Bennett – who once portrayed Argento’s son in 2004’s The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things – alleged five years back that the then-37-year old Argento raped Bennett when he was 17 years old.
Bennett says in these documents that Argento kissed him prior to performing oral sex on him and engaging in intercourse at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, California.
The alleged incident took place in 2013.
But Argento only just recently settled with Bennett, and she did so just months after she went public with accusations that movie producer Harvey Weinstein raped her.
Argento was one of the first women to make this allegation against Weinstein, helping to set off an avalanche of other accusations and helping to usher in the #MeToo movement in Hollywood.
And across the country, really.
Due to Argento’s role in the Weinstein saga, the fact that she has now been accused of sexual assault herself has left many in the entertainment industry rattled.
Perhaps no one more so than McGown, who also says she was raped by Weinstein and who has also been vocal on the topic of misogyny in Hollywood.
“I got to know Asia Argento ten months ago. Our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein,” the 44-year-old actress tweeted on Monday morning, not long after the aforementioned New York Times story went viral.
“My heart is broken. I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere.
“None of us know the truth of the situation and I’m sure more will be revealed. Be gentle.”
As for why Bennett waited so long to take make his accusations against Argento know?
The newspaper quoted Gordon K. Sattro, Bennet’s attorney, who wrote in the notice of intent that Bennett’s “feelings about that day were brought to the forefront recently when Ms. Argento took the spotlight as one of the many victims of Harvey Weinstein.”
At this point, McGown and Argento are two of over 60 women who have detailed their horrific experiences at the hands of Weinstein.
Argento, meanwhile, was also in the news a few weeks ago for a different heartbreaking reason:
She was dating Anthony Bourdain at the time this celebrity chef committed suicide.
She Tweeted shortly after his death:
Anthony gave all of himself in everything that he did. His brilliant, fearless spirit touched and inspired so many, and his generosity knew no bounds.
He was my love, my rock, my protector. I am beyond devastated. My thoughts are with his family. I would ask that you respect their privacy and mine.

Anthony Anderson is under criminal investigation.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that it received a report against the Black-ish star, with The Blast writing that Anderson is accused of assaulting a woman last year after an event she catered for him.
Inside tell the aforementioned website that the unnamed victum met with Anderson a second time after the event to discuss future opportunities.
This is supposedly when the assault took place, although no other details are really known about it at this time
“We have a crime report listing him as a suspect in a crime. It is an open investigation,” the LAPD has simply said in response to this story.
A spokesperson for the star, meanwhile, has issued a statement on Anderson’s behalf.
It reads as follows:
“It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false.
“The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.
Back in 2004, Anderson and assistant director Wayne Witherspoon were accused of raping an extra on the set of the 2004 film “Hustle & Flow.”
However, the charges were later dropped when the judge ruled that there was no probable cause to try the case.
This has no practical bearing on the latest charges, we’re just reporting a few facts.
Anderson was just nominated his fourth Emmy Award for his portrayal of Andre Johnson, the patriarch on the ABC sitcom Black-ish.
He is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame later this year, as well.
On the small screen, Anderson’s resume includes appearance and/or starring roles on Guys with Kids, Treme, Psych, Shameless and The Shield.
On the big screen, he has had roles in The Departed (2006), Kangaroo Jack (2003) and Transformers (2007) and Scream 4 (2011).
Anderson is married with two kids.
