Accounts of sexual misconduct, assault, and even rape have rocked the entertainment industry over the last few months. Movie stars, directors, and producers have all fallen under the weight of charges against them. The likes of Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein, and Brett Ratner have all been made to reckon with their past actions, and have seen swift repudiation from the film industry.

10. Roman Polanski
9. Woody Allen
8. James Toback
7. Kevin Spacey
6. Harvey Weinstein
5. Andy Dick
4. Brett Ratner
3. Steven Seagal
2. George Takei

If this list wasn't just restricted to Hollywood Stars directors and producers Jared Fogle would definitely be on this list. Bill Cosby and R.Kelly should definitely be on this list or get at least a dishonorable mention. And there were accusations against Michael Jackson as well.
Person: Michael Jackson was a child molester
Almost everyone who hears that: "Oh, but he was SO talented!"
Person: So, it's okay to molest children as long as you're talented? Gee, I know someone who is a true genius with Excel spreadsheets. Maybe someone should tell him he's okay to start diddling kids. . . .
George Takei has been vindicated and should not be on this list. The police evidence does not corroborate with the accusations and the accuser himself,Scott Brunton, has retracted his accusations. I attached an article if anyone cares to read it:
Plus, Louis C.K did some gross things, but he didn't assault anyone. I think R.Kelley and Bill Cosby are much better candidates for this list.
The behaviour descrbed in this Top Ten goes all the way back to Broadway at the beginning of the 20th Century, where the infamous “Casting Couch” first appeared, then migrated West to the silent movie sets. Harry Cohn, Jack Warner and Louis B. Meyer all expected to reap the charms of their starlets. Meyer allegedly groped a teenaged Judy Garland on one occasion. Agent Henry Wilson was a serial abuser. The Fatty Arbuckle case remains notorious, if ambiguous. Errol Flynn even had a catch-phrase named after him: “In Like Flynn”. The history of Hollywood is a pretty sordid one, just wrapped in glitter and razzle.
Simon, Simon, Simon, brother, your videos are excellent, however, certain words my friend, i.e., "berry" as oppose to baby. Rosemary's Baby. I gave you the benefit of the doubt due to the British accent, after rewinding the video many times, yes, "berry." Cheers my friend.
5/28/19....WHY have some of these "victims" waited 20 yrs to report sexual abuse/attacks?
I DON'T BELIEVE PPL WHO WAIT OVER 24 HRS---OR MORE THAN 1 WEEKEND---DURING WHICH THEY TRY TO "GET OVER" SUCH SEXUAL "ENCOUNTERS"!
1ST I ever heard of Richard Dreyfus' son & Kevin Spacy.
The thing is.. These guys could've had sex with any number of women. None of this was about sex, it was about power tripping, and imo, we give WAY too much power to certain people, and it's inevitable that creeps will be among them. We need to end this absolute power game.
Where is michael jackson? He is a pedophile and an all out weirdo. Glad he is dead, even his music sucks. Yeah, i said it. Being popular wont make you great, then Justin Bieber would be the greatest musician alive! 😬😬😤
In some of these cases, there have been allegations but no proof. While I believe that allegations are to be taken seriously, it's still a separate category from "respected people who turned out to be creeps."
And to show how depraved and sexually perverted Hollywood is even today, they idolize and still give Polanski Awards to this day.
That's why people like Corey Feldman Corey Haim are so damaged and tortured today. If you are a child star in Hollywood you can better believe that you are going to be sexually abused and exploited.
Because Hollywood idolizes those who are perverted and sexual deviants.
What I like about your narrative is the clear and precise pronunciation with none of the weird and unnaturally sounding artificial "creepy" voice structure that has become so popular with presenters - and many viewers - of many YouTube channels over the past few years. Taken alongside the interesting subject matter presented without the sensationalism so often combined to such unusual stories, your channel has definitely become my favourite "Top...Whatever" program. 🌟
Interesting that the James Toback report includes a story by the 'BBC' - one of the world's most notorious 'organisations,' spending decades protecting rapists and an extensive paedophile ring. It shouldn't just be the criminals themselves that should pay for these crimes, the corporation should pay big time - after all, someone worked hard to keep these dreadful acts quickly hushed up or secret.
This list depresses me so hard. Kevin Spacey? George Takei? What else is there to believe in??? That being said; a second list is definitely in order. I need to be reminded about how Bill Cosby has single-handedly ruined my childhood.
I am deeply disappointed in Kevin Spacey. I enjoyed his acting. I remember there were accusations swirling around when he made a movie in New Mexico and that was well before this incident came to light.
Steven Seagal would come to Romania (and other Eastern European countries for sure) and organize "castings" in order to find a few "secretaries" for his stay in the country.
I know a girl who was invited to one of these "castings" (she was a model) and she left when she realized what was being asked of her...
Can we please stop saying these men "allegedly" raped people? It's pretty clear that they did, and using terms like "allegedly" puts it into doubt and makes people who come forward look suspicious. It's hard enough to talk about your sexual assault experiences.
While I find his behavior inexcusable, what kind of a mother would their daughter to go alone with Roan Polanski for a photo shoot. With his well known reputation I would have accompanied them if he were going to take pictures of my female dog, Merelty an opinion mind you but at the least negelence.
It *can't* come as surprise to *anyone* that Woody Allen is a well renowned pedophile in Hollywood and *nobody* dares to speak out about it.
Anyone that know who Jimmy Saville was might agree on the circumstances....
