Predators have been lurking in the entertainment industry for decades.
The Harvey Weinstein scandal shined a light on a lot of the misconduct happening behind the scenes.
Now one Hollywood actress made a shocking confession about abuse by a famous musician.
Actress Evan Rachel Wood broke into the industry as a child and has worked steadily ever since.
Now at 33 years old, Wood is coming clean about mental and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of controversial rock star Marilyn Manson.
Wood had alluded to an abusive relationship in her past, but she finally called him out by name in a statement to Vanity Fair.
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner…Also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years…I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
Wood went into greater detail about the abuse inflicted by Warner, who is 19 years her senior.
“I mustered the courage to leave several times, but he would call my house incessantly and threaten to kill himself…On one occasion, I returned to try and defuse the situation, he cornered me in our bedroom, and asked me to kneel. Then he tied me up by my hands and feet. Once I was restrained he beat me and shocked sensitive parts of my body with a torture device called a violet wand. To him it was a way for me to prove my loyalty. The pain was excruciating. It felt like I left my body and a part of me died that day.”
Wood’s harrowing story echoes what she had previously said about pedophilia in Hollywood being “the next dam to break.”
A lot of the momentum built up by the #MeToo movement in light of Harvey Weinstein’s exposure as a serial rapist and harasser was undercut when prominent Democrats were given a free pass.
Most notably Joe Biden’s accuser Tara Reade was thrown under the bus by the so-called mainstream media and the Democratic elite because Biden was useful.
The corporate press was completely disinterested in finding out the truth about Biden.
It took weeks for The New York Times to run the story, and Reade did not receive any primetime television interviews in the United States; Reade appeared on the Australian version of “60 Minutes,” which is a clear sign that the Democrat Media Complex was not going to risk Reade torpedoing Biden’s presidential campaign.
Hopefully more Hollywood monsters that have operated with impunity for years will finally be exposed.
Wood and other actors have referenced the disturbing trend of pedophilia in the industry.
It’s time for these criminals to be revealed and punished.
