You make ammends and seek forgiveness and there's always a path forward. He hasnt done that yet so folks are understandably upset

THR: John Lasseter hire poorly received by Paramount which distributes Skydance films   Antibody on Jan 10, 08:34

Unbelievable he was unemployed for just one week. His Disney contract expired on Dec. 31, 2018.   Antibody on Jan 10, 08:59

He was working with WME and taking meetings in November at least so this has been in the works for some time.   notfabio on Jan 10, 09:12

Yes, the point is a serial sexual harrasser was unemployed for just one week. {nm}   Antibody on Jan 10, 09:27

So a person makes a mistake and they should be blacklisted forever? {nm}   Triggered on Jan 10, 09:34

Certainly not in the same position within a week. CB has a list of his decades-long sexual harrassment/assaults that we know of.   Antibody on Jan 10, 09:37

He gave hugs and compliments. Outrage culture at its best {nm}   Triggered on Jan 10, 09:43

*Unwanted touching, from a position of power. White male privilege at its best. {nm}   Antibody on Jan 10, 09:46

literally no one said that {nm}   Moviesnob on Jan 10, 10:12

A mistake? A MISTAKE? He was a serial harasser. {nm}   CSStrowbridge on Jan 10, 19:07

But he is a. white man who made some good movies and bank so, Bygones.   CSBD on Jan 11, 04:06

also, it wasn't just about long hugs. female employees at Pixar had their careers derailed by Lasseter's misogyny   professor zovek on Jan 11, 12:21

All I see in that article is her perceived objectification based on her interpretation of his "looks" at her. Get over it {nm}   Triggered on Jan 11, 13:28
