Rapist filmmaker Roman Polanski says the #MeToo movement, which outs the sex crimes of powerful men in Hollywood is “collective hysteria” and “total hypocrisy.”
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Polanski made the comment in a recent interview given just days before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stripped him of his nearly 50-year membership.
In 1977 Polanski raped a minor.
The rapist Polanski said that to him, #MeToo is a “collective hysteria of the kind that sometimes happens in the society.”
“Everyone is trying to sign up, chiefly out of fear,” he said, comparing it to North Korea’s public mourning for its leaders when everyone cries so much that “you can’t help laughing.”
“To me this is total hypocrisy,” he said, but did not elaborate.
WTF??? Seriously???? #MeToo is like North Korea?????
Polanski is clearly a mental case.
Polanski’s feckless lawyer in Poland, Jan Olszewski, said that stripping Polanski of his Academy membership bore signs of “psychological abuse of an elderly person” for “populist goals.”
Olszewski made no mention of the psychological abuse inflicted on Polanski’s victim.
The rapist Polanski remains a fugitive after fleeing the United States in 1978 over the unlawful sex case.
President Trump should demand that Poland turn him over to U.S. authorities immediately. He is a rapist criminal. He should be punished.
