This Website Tells You Which Alleged Sexual Abusers Are in Your Favorite Films/Shows
Make movies not creepy again??
In light of the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct swirling around Hollywood, audiences might want to enjoy films and TV shows without having to implicitly accept the industry's gross underbelly. Newly launched website Rotten Apples is here with a solution to create a...safe space of sorts.
The site allows you to type in a movie or series into the search bar and see if any cast-members, screenwriters, executive producers, or directors that worked on the project have been accused of sexual misconduct. If a name pops up, the site deems them "Bad Apples" and supplies a link to sources detailing that person's alleged abuse.
Unfortunately, many movies released just this year were produced by Miramax or the Weinstein Company and don't pass the test, but standouts like Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, and The Shape of Water do. These films pop up as "Fresh Apples" and the caption reads "This movie has no known affiliation to anyone with allegations of sexual misconduct against them. If you believe this is an error, please let us know by clicking here and we’ll fix it as soon as possible."
"The goal of this site is to further drive awareness of just how pervasive sexual misconduct in film and television is and to help make ethical media consumption easier," reads Rotten Apples' about section. "This database is not perfect, nor are the results meant to be taken as fact. Each link is sourced from an existing article and is not a reflection of our own opinions."
