Can't really defend Tarantino here, but Polanski is a total scumbag who would never think twice about trampling on anybody else, especially "little people." So why should anyone feel sympathy for him when he is abused?

She would have more credibility if she hadn’t married a child rapist.

Andrew: The thing about statutory rape is even if they consent, it's still rape. They're children. Plus, she said no multiple times but he still went ahead...

Re: the story, it seems mostly about Sharon Tate than Polansky. Perhaps Tarantino didn't want to be seen consorting with a child rapist?

Does an admitted criminal deviant deserve any thing but condemnation, scorn and derision ? Age should not equate to a free pass.

13 years old. Polanski may well be a fine director but there's little doubt that this was abuse.

A family friend stated that Polanski propositioned ger at Tate's funeral. A sleazeball - who, by the way, was idolized and championed by Hollywood right up until he Metoo movement became flavor of the month.

It's stupid on her part and her credibility is low.

This is not 'sympathy for the devil' time. Polanski is a perv scumbag, Emmanuelle Seigner is dumb to stick up for him and Quentin loves to strike sensational nerves with his films. I gave up on his flicks after seeing 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction' because his films are nerve-wracking exercises in glorifying great and extreme sadism, cruelty, graphic violence, sick sex, crime and just plain obnoxiousness and belligerency.
