Last year, Bryan Singer posted an obvious pre-emptive strike against a forthcoming piece about rumored sexual misconduct allegations against him. Many expected a bombshell piece to soon follow. But it didn't until today, when The Atlantic published a year-long investigation into a number of said allegations, many of which echoed the long-standing rumors about the troubled director.
As Sarah Marrs mentioned in her write-up of the piece, many people, even those not in close proximity to Hollywood, had long heard the open secret about Singer's behavior. So it wouldn't be far-fetched to assume that a good number of those people were the very actors and actresses that ended up working with him regardless. Singer has made a number of genre films, most notably kicking off the X-Men franchise and a Superman film that even I have written about being a fan of. What happens now, post- The Atlantic's reporting, is anyone's guess. But what about those actors and actresses, the studios and producers, etc, that chose to work with Singer?
Are some of your, and our, faves now cancelled? In the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, how do fans feel about those who may have turned a blind eye to a known or alleged abuser? And does that impact whether or not you can or will continue to support their work?
