3 years ago. With a set designer, not an actress. This needs investigation.

Looking at that photo I cannot believe the allegations. But if there is physical evidence such as semen stains on her clothes then I may have to accept that he is an old pervert.

So every possible lady who has been touched can go on financial claims frenzy, it is open bar !

None felt the need to report to police at the time ? NONE EVER ?

There were no threats, no superior harassment, no blackmail, nothing. Especially in France where women are listenened to.

Empathy does not mean believing every claim, especially in those circumstances.

Unfortunately for men, it is just an oportunity with no loss/only potential gain from it (fame, money...).

Well, maybe we could start with the ones who:

"brutally grabbed her" and "kneaded her waist and stomach up to her breasts".

Did you read the accusations? They’re in the article above

Especially in France where women are listenened to.

You instantly dismissed the alleged victim. How much listening did you do?

Not French anymore. That guy chose to be Russian ... after that Emirati.

Ain't this Green Card cat living in Russia?

According to Mediapart, another woman accused Depardieu of twice touching "her breasts and buttocks" on the same set in August 2021.

Should be slam dunk to prove with fingerprints and his DNA traces. Fully support maximum justice for these victims.

Poor attempt.

There was apparently an eye witness. Maybe they’ll corroborate what happened.

A one eyed witness?

A bodyguard.

Burden of proof requires hard evidence.

Not so sure about a ‘slam dunk’ now?

Oh, you were joking.

Don’t you think this should be investigated to, you know, support maximum justice for these victims?

Just want the man to be properly punished if he is indeed guilty. I would delicately put forward however that looking at the picture, it suggest atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and possibly impotence so we must be sure he can even physically do what he is accused of.

He is accused of groping a woman. His blood pressure is irrelevant.

You claim to be supportive of feminism, but then shite like this comes out of your mouth.

Yes - because touching women against their will is sexual assault.

None felt the need to report to police at the time ? NONE EVER ?

Of course they felt the need. They would like to report famous powerful men who assault them, but look what happens when they do. You make these comments and then wonder why women don't speak out more? Do you know the definition of "irony"?

There were no threats, no superior harassment, no blackmail, nothing. Especially in France where women are listenened to.

He is a man with influence and power. Obviously he doesn't need to voice threats and blackballing (not blackmail, obviously) is implied - just as with Cosby and Weinstein. I feel like this is elementary and completely obvious, yet here I am having to explain it to you.

Empathy does not mean believing every claim, especially in those circumstances.

Actually, yes it does. It means believing women and taking their claims seriously so as to investigate thoroughly. What empathy is not is questioning women and disbelieving them because the man they are accusing is rich, powerful and famous - because that is exactly how Epstein got away with raping underaged girls, Cosby, Weinstein ... do I need to keep naming names, here?

Unfortunately for men, it is just an oportunity with no loss/only potential gain from it (fame, money...).

Yeah, like Shiori Ito became "famous"? Or how about Christine Blasey Ford, who had to get bodyguards and move house to avoid death threats? The women who accuse rich powerful famous men have to deal with death threats, public scorn, accusations of lying, and all kinds of trauma. No one would sign up to endure that unless they knew they were telling the truth. Even after Ito won people still accuse her and say horrible things.

What is wrong with you?

He is a man with influence and power. Obviously he doesn't need to voice threats and blackballing (not blackmail, obviously) is implied - just as with Cosby and Weinstein.

So then basically, you’re just speculating once again.

I feel like this is elementary and completely obvious, yet here I am having to explain it to you.

Well, to you, but it’s not obvious for everyone to know the so-called obvious if they don’t see it as such.

I'm explaining why rich famous powerful men get away with rape, and I named a couple of them who were convicted in a court of law. How is that "speculation"?

Well, to you, but it’s not obvious for everyone to know the so-called obvious if they don’t see it as such.

I tend to think it's kind of like when you point out racism. Racists always deny being racist, and misogynists always deny being misogynists.

If this was a lone case it probably wouldn't fly. But there's been plenty of others saying the same thing and it's a bunch of sporadic incidents.

Rapists and sex assaulters rarely if ever stop with one person. They want to see if they can get away with it again next time. It's a power junkie thing.

And there's the pedo R Kelly and trump who got convicted of rape and defamation of E Carroll recently because he just can't keep his juvenile trashmouth shut. Even before in 2016 he bragged his incestuous lust for his daughter and mumbled his stupid ego with 'muh-muh-muh-muh-muh, I'm a STAR and women flock to me and I grab em by the ........' . America just seemed to lolly along with it, accepting it because he's the POTUS. That's right, obey der Fuehrer.

The allegations are piling up and need to be investigated, and if Depardieu is guilty he shall PAY - movie star or not!
