'Fear is everywhere': a quiet paranoia haunts post-Weinstein Hollywood The industry is on edge as allegations of sexual misconduct
The industry is on edge as allegations of sexual misconduct reach dizzying heights. The question on everyone’s mind is: ‘Who will be next?’


Week five of the great reckoning and Hollywood is frightened and lost, drifting deeper into uncharted waters with no script, no direction and no sense how it will end.

Scandal was always part of the entertainment industry, a ritualised process of rumours, denials and hush money, publicists and fixers, banishment and redemption.

But the vortex of sexual abuse allegations which started with Harvey Weinstein spins ever faster, whirling beyond control of the studios.

How do you contain a phenomenon which ricochets around the world – toppling a British cabinet minister and threatening a Republican Senate nominee, among others – and keeps returning to the entertainment industry, with the latest accusations against the comedian Louis CK?

How do you, or should you, separate art from the artist when Ridley Scott cuts Kevin Spacey’s scenes from his new film about the oil tycoon J Paul Getty and reshoots them with Christopher Plummer?

How do you campaign for awards when Weinstein’s fingerprints are everywhere and questions on the red carpet will not be who you’re wearing but what you knew and when?

And how do you blow the whistle on an abuser when despite the current catharsis you still fear for your career and reputation?

Anxiety pervades Hollywood, said Sasha Stone, founder of the website Awards Daily. “There’s a lot of nervousness. People don’t know where this is going. Everybody is asking who will be next. Publicists are paid to keep stories down and control the message but now they’re in a situation where the truth comes out faster than they can control the message. It’s like gasoline, as soon as a story breaks, whoosh.”

It's about time too.

Disgusting nest of vipers, it needs cleaning up, preferably by an air strike.

They're all guilty as hell. Either they are someone or they know someone and have kept their mouth shut.

“Do not proffer sympathy to the mentally ill; it is a bottomless pit. Tell them firmly, 'I am not paid to listen to this drivel — you are a terminal fool!'”
-William S. Burroughs
