Hollywood Planning New ‘Code Of Conduct’ That’s Much Less Rapey

Jazz Shaw of Hot Air reports on Tinseltown’s “code of conduct” that has just been issued. She has a lot to say about Hellywood’s (not a typo) rich and famous who actually stand up and applaud a convicted child rapist who won a coveted Oscar in 2003. Shaw provides a video of the event, which is nauseating to watch:

There’s been some movement toward more transparency and less tolerance of sexual harassment in Washington, but what about Hollywood? That’s where all of this started, after all. In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein revelations (along with too many others to list at this point), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – the people who bring you the Oscars – has drafted a new code of conduct. One might assume that the 21st century version is going to include some guidance about not raping your employees. (USA Today)
