another Scott Baio accuser




Another Charles in Charge co-star has come forward to accuse Scott Baio of sexual assault. At a press conference on Wednesday, Alexander Polinsky claims that Baio abused him when Polinksy was between the ages of 12 and 15, including both sexual harassment and assault. Polinksy was joined at the press conference by fellow Charles in Charge co-star Nicole Eggert, who was the first to accuse Baio of sexually abusing her during her time on the show when she was a minor. In his statement, Polinksy said he witnessed Baio acting “sexual in nature” with Eggert when she was 14 and sitting on his lap. Polinksy, who was 11 at the time, says he also sat on Baio’s lap thinking he would be told a story about Baio’s time on Happy Days. “Instead of telling us a story, Scott immediately threw me off him and began angrily calling me ‘faggot’ while Nicole laughed,” he said.

He claims that a “pattern of abuse that was unrelenting” followed that incident, which Polinksy now believes was done in retaliation for having witnessed Baio with Eggert. He says that harassment included frequent use of homophobic slurs on set. Polinksy added, “Scott pulled down my pants in front of over 100 people. Another time, he laughed as he cut a hole in the canvas wall of my private dressing room on set and exposed his genitals to me.” He remembers Baio once apologized for throwing a “burning hot cup of tea” in his face, but then allegedly persisted with “sexual-themed hazing.” Both Polinsky and Eggert claim that multiple adults on set were aware of Baio’s behavior but feared losing their jobs if they made a complaint. They say at least ten witnesses have since spoken to police after Eggert reported Baio to the LAPD; Polinksy has also reported Baio to the police and is demanding an apology from Baio for the both of them. Baio previously denied Eggert’s claims.

I heard Willie Aames say Baio was a bully on set. Aames said this 20 years ago.

Well I think we all could have guessed that.

Yea, not a shocker but it was Aames from way back that made me have no trouble believing it. He probably did tease the kid as well. As for Eggert, I still have trouble believing it.

Last night, Sports Illustrated dropped a detailed account of internal sexual harassment and physical abuse complaints reported against a number of Dallas Mavericks male executives and employees, including former team president and CEO Terdema Ussery. After the team failed to soften the backlash with a preemptive statement, team owner Mark Cuban spoke with ESPN on Wednesday to offer his thoughts and an explanation for the harassment culture found in his organization.
Cuban’s remarks were largely contained to the company’s botched handling of two separate physical assaults by former Mavs.com writer Earl Sneed. Sneed was arrested and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of family violence assault and interference with emergency request in 2010; four years later, he struck a female co-worker he was dating and living with. Both times, the team was aware of the reports and still allowed him to keep his job—in the second instance of assault, the Mavericks actually had him sign a team-drafted agreement that prohibited any future “one-on-one contact” or dating of female Mavericks employees.
In speaking with ESPN at length on the Sneed report (he declined comment on the Ussery allegations), the Mavericks owner said he regretted employing Sneed after the incidents and claimed nobody on staff read the 2010 police report.
“I want to be clear, I’m not putting the blame on anybody else,” Cuban told ESPN. “It came down to my final decision that I made.”
[...]
“It was bad, but we made a mistake about the whole thing and didn’t pursue what happened with the police after the fact,” Cuban told ESPN. “So we got it mostly from Earl’s perspective, and because we didn’t dig in with the details — and obviously it was a horrible mistake in hindsight — we kind of, I don’t want to say took his word for it, but we didn’t see all the gruesome details until just recently. I didn’t read the police report on that until just [Tuesday], and that was a huge mistake obviously.”
[...]
“So that was my decision. What I missed, and it was truly a fuck up on my part, because I was not there [at the Mavericks’ office], I looked at everything anecdotally. My real fuck up was I didn’t recognize the impact it would have on all the other employees. I looked at this as a one-off situation where, OK, if I don’t do anything, this person could go out there and do damage on another women another time. Or do I say, can we get him counseling to try to prevent that from happening again? I thought I was doing the right thing at the time.
“What I missed, again, is I didn’t realize the impact that it would have on the workplace and on the women that worked here and how it sent a message to them that, if it was OK for Earl to do that, who knows what else is OK in the workplace? I missed that completely. I missed it completely.”
Cuban also claimed he did not fire Sneed because he felt that by keeping him on the books and requiring counseling, he was preventing Sneed from being hired by another team site and repeating his actions—a thought that completely dismisses the very basic idea of simply calling and informing whoever hired Sneed of his abuse history, which given the fact he assaulted another Mavs employee, seems not only the humane and decent thing to do but the legally sound thing to do. Cuban and the Mavericks did not take that course, though; they instead gave Sneed two chances and then had him sign a contract so that he would be financially incentivized not to hit his co-workers or significant others anymore. Cuban said investigators are completing an investigation to check, but that after the second time he struck a woman and faced the team’s light tap on the wrist, Sneed “appeared to abide by all those rules, as far as I knew.”
That then brings up the question of what, exactly, Cuban knew. Recognized publicly as one of the most hands-on owners in sports, Cuban “insisted he had no knowledge of the corrosive culture in his offices,” when presented with the report by SI on Monday. On Tuesday, after SI showed him what they had on Monday, Cuban canned human resources director Buddy Pittman and suspended and later fired Sneed. He stayed true to this line on Wednesday, telling ESPN he rarely went over to the team business office and that, “because I was not there [at the Mavericks’ office], I looked at everything anecdotally.”
Cuban and the Mavericks are now waiting on the results of an investigation into the reports involving Ussery by a New York law firm before they comment on that section of the report. Again, both the Mavericks in a statement on Tuesday and Cuban in multiple interview with SI and ESPN have claimed they were not aware of any of Ussery’s sexually aggressive history against female co-workers—this, from a man who so meticulously runs his team that he’spersonally yanked the credentials of a pair of ESPN.com writers for negative coverage and internally threatened to axe the person in charge of replays because he didn’t feel they were up to snuff.

Monica Lewinsky has slept on things for 20 years and decided that Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her based on the power imbalance in their relationship. I can't wait to hear liberals' thoughts on this one...

"Now, at 44, I’m beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern.  I’m beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot."

Who needs personal responsibility when you can just blame a more important/rich person?

If you were in your teens in the 1990s, chances are good that you personally watched Ren & Stimpy on Nickelodeon, or had friends who were obsessed with the trippy antics of the animated dog-and-cat duo. An in-depth report published yesterday at Buzzfeed has two women on the record alleging that, when they were very young teenagers, Kricfalusi had inappropriate relationships with them after promising to help start their careers in animation.
Katie Rice, now 36, and Robyn Byrd, 37, both say they had long e-mail relationships with Kricfalusi when they were teens with more serious allegations from Byrd. The article reports on the situation in great detail with comments from co-workers who, according to Buzzfeed, “said stories of how Kricfalusi sexually harassed female artists, including teenage girls, were known through the industry. ‘It’s always been there.’” Kricfalusi never had sexual contact with Rice but he did with Byrd, who he hired to be an intern at his animation studio SpumCo. According to other employees who spoke to Buzzfeed, their relationship was an open secret and Kricfalusi showed nude and sexually explicit photographs of Byrd at company parties.
Nickelodeon declined to comment on the allegations but Buzzfeed received a statement via Kricfalusi’s lawyer which states in part, “For a brief time, 25 years ago, he had a 16-year-old girlfriend.”
It’s the kind of story that’s coming to light more and more of late but this one is particularly gross. You can read the full report here.

It's getting to the point where co-workers don't see, "Wow, that dress really makes your tits pop" as the compliment it should be.

LOL...more like it's to the point you may as well say that exactly, you get treated the same as if you said "Gee I like that dress".

Might as well get your moneys worth out of getting canned. :)

Out of control.  

Leave fucking Stan Lee alone. 

On another note, those who have him in the Dead Pool could get major bonus points here. 



A masseuse is suing Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee, accusing him of sexual misconduct during two massage sessions in April 2017.
The 95-year-old comic book mogul is best known as the creator of iconic superheroes such as Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man and the X-Men.
The Associated Press reports that Maria Carballo filed a suit against Lee and his assistant, Mac Anderson, on Monday (April 23). She is seeking over $50,000 in punitive damages and attorney fees.
Carballo has also filed a criminal complaint with Chicago police, who are investigating the allegations.
According to Page Six, Carballo’s complaint involves five counts: assault, battery, violation of the Illinois Gender Violence Act, emotional distress and civil conspiracy.
Lee is accused of fondling himself, moaning loudly and grabbing Carballo’s foot and touching it against his genitals.
“For a long time, I was afraid to ask anyone to help me hold Mr. Lee accountable for how he treated me. He is rich and famous. I am not,” Carballo said in a statement.
