If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.

Welcome to the industry. The worst word in that entire article is "Eventually". Why did it go past once? He is a media darling. How many reporters WATCHED his behavior and said NOTHING? If these accusations are true then he is a monster, but its about bloody time the industry admitted and dealt with the fact that no monster is an island.

To me he was banned from a convention for this. Why didn't the companies he subsequently worked for look into what he was banned for? That had to have been a big red flag.

"Hey your employee has been banned from this convention permanently."

"Okies...onto the next one."

Also by one of the victims accounts, people tried to get help for him but he refused. That right there should have been the end of his career until he got the help he needed. But like so much in the industry it was all hushed up in the hopes that it would go away and he could continue to do his work while preying on young women.

Well they are the ones writing the stories right? So no way are they gonna paint themselves as the bad guys.
