So I had to go and look up what he was accused of, and I was kinda surprised. Yeah, it was … deeply icky, but hardly ‘abuse’. Apart from the age difference (he was 26 at the time), what happened was no worse than what goes on at the average frat party.
Assuming that’s not the only skeleton in his closet (and honestly, it’s just a single bone of indeterminate origin) I thought his response to the accusation was appropriate and adequate. TBH I’m getting a bit sick of minor celebrities doing the oooh, oooh, I was abused too thing. Seems there are some genuine psychos and some genuine victims of serious assault. Asserting that somebody who stroked your hair or patted your ass has left you traumatized for life is a bit much.
