As they say in my line of business, “One ‘Oh Crap!’ cancels out 10,000 ‘Attaboy!‘s.”
More than 100 Hollywood people have signed a petition in defense of their colleague Polanski.
Polanski did the crime; a particularly heinous crime. He drugged and raped a 13 year old girl repeatedly. He needs to do the time. No matter what achievements he has in the film industry.
The idea that somebody should get off scott free for ANY kind of crime, much less rape, just because he has a following in Hollywood, is itself obscene.
There’s a reason that the statue of justice has a blindfold.
