Bryan Singerís Accuser Names Three More Alleged Sex Abusers
Variety ^ | April 21st, 2014 | Film Reporter Dave McNary

Posted on 04/21/2014 8:46:40 PM PDT by Mariner

Hollywood executives Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard have been accused of sexually abusing teenage boys in lawsuits filed Monday in Hawaii federal court.

“I would not wish on my worst enemies what I went through,” declared plaintiff Michael Egan at a Monday news conference at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

Ancier is the former president of BBC Worldwide America and also served as head of programming for Fox, NBC and the WB. He’s also the head of year-old Quad Media Partners, formed to launch four fully curated linear TV networks, “each built around a modern decade in broadcast and cable network television.”

Neuman, the former president of Disney TV, previously worked for Digital Entertainment Network, which was headed by Marc Collins-Rector, who was cited as being involved in the sexual activity at the heart of Egan’s original lawsuit against director Bryan Singer.

Hollywood coming undone!

This may be the biggest scandal since we discovered they were all commies.

Now America will know they're all homosexual, pedophile commies.

Now we know why Hollywood producers prefer those skinny girls in the movies, they look more like BOYS!

At least that's my wife's theory.

This won’t cause a chip in their armor. Most star struck idiots will say “Oh, that’s just a couple of freaks. IF it’s even true.”

Look into Corey Feldman’s autobiography, Choryography. Hollywood is a cesspool of pedophiles......gay and straight. I suspect that the child actor Corey Haim, died because of his drug problems, fueled by Hollywood's deviancy. No child should have to endure what the child actors/actresses have endured in the past.

If God doesn’t destroy Hollywood, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

Though I think Hal Roach took care of his Rascals just fine.

Alcoholism, homicide, all kinds of adultery came later. Once they’d had a chance to mature.

As with the suit against Singer, Egan made four claims against each of the three execs — intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion. Each of the suits recounted in explicit detail the sexual acts that took allegedly place between Egan and each of the men in Hawaii in 1999. “Somebody has to stand up to these people,” said the 31-year-old Egan. The suits are also seeking at least $300,000 in damages and attorney’s fees.

I will ask the same question I'd asked a couple of days ago on this case. What is the standard of proof required to make such an accusation? Now, I do not know this Bryan Singer, I am not defending him, and I am not saying there are no cases of abuse in tinseltown. All I am asking is what is the standard of proof required? Certain accusations carry a lot of weight, and the proof requisite should also be similarly significant.

Or can one simply come and say 'so and so' molested me, do a writeup of how that abuse occured, and file a suit asking for monetary damages?

My question is - before these accusations are made public, is their a standard of proof that is required that goes beyond simply writing a statement on what was done?

(Again: Just to re-emphasize, I am not defending this chap, and do not know him. I am asking what I believe is a logical question, and not just for this case. Does the legal system have filters in place to ensure an accusation is based on fact before they make something headline news? On the other thread some days back a FReeper gave an example he knew of where some average Joe got railroaded with a similar accusation, which turned out false. Unfortunately, even false accusations can break up families and such).

ever notice that over the decades, you could count on one hand the number of Hollywood executives charged with any type of sexual abuse?
and they even have something called the casting couch. but never is heard a discouraging word.

There are a lot of people ‘sleeping with the fishes’ who tried to bring it to light.

That's because she's right. Look at the anorexic models who walk the fashion runway then look at the clothing designers such as Versace before he was killed by Andrew Cunanan the gay call boy who went on a killing spree.

That's why I've NEVER understood feminists complaining that fashion designers and beauty magazines are to blame for "men's unrealistic expectations of women" causing anorexia.

Uh, it ISN'T heterosexual men running those industries.

I can't speak for all heterosexual men, but emaciated women are NOT appealing.

Brave, brave man. Thank you. This has been true for decades. Hollywood jerks have adored their underaged girls and boys, using them, drugging them, and throwing them away. LETS MAKE IT STOP.

Here’s what I’m asking — Why are you asking? What do your doubts spring from? Do you have some knowledge of the situation? Were you falsely accused at one time?

So can homo pedophiles.

Totally agree. Rapists, pedos, all sorts of riffraff can breakup families. However, my question was whether real evidence is required before an accusation takes root.

I have seen too many accusations in the media - some examples include Tawana Brawley, the Duke university Lacross team accusation and the Susan Smith kid murder case. I never accept anything at face value without proof, and that is why I was asking if any evidence is required before someone goes and states person XYZ did ABC to them. Especially when $300,000 is being asked for, and the event happened 15 years ago. My question was simple - is their any evidence required before accusing someone?

As for whether I know the person (or even, and I found this weird, I have been 'accused'). I thought the disclaimer would be sufficient, but let me shed some more light on that. I do not know the man (and I doubt I have been within 3,000 miles of the chap), I have no knowledge of the situation, and - this is a new one - I have never been accused, falsely or not, at any time.

With questions on potential accusations on my part out of the way, the reason I am asking is simple. I am interested in knowing if any real proof is required before someone makes an accusation. That's it.

I am not saying he did not molest the guy. In the same way when Crystal Magnum made her false accusations on the Lacross team I did not mean rape doesn't happen when I asked then what additional evidence was present. And no, it doesn't mean I was raped either (or a rapist) when I had questions - not doubts, questions - on that case either when it first came out.

If the guy is a rapist he needs to be hang by his nuts, then shot. Just thought I maybe need to say that again before someone asks if I am protecting homo pedos.

Sadly, I doubt if this will impact the box office on the new X-Men movie in the least. Even people who think there is some fire behind this smoke will go anyway—some of it to support “the embattled Singer.” Like the people who cheer with extra enthusiasm for the accused rapist football player.

With the understanding that people are ultimately responsible for their own actions, it makes you wonder about the short, troubled life of Brad Renfro, star of Apt Pupil.
