Published

on

A former leader of the #MeToo movement which exposed the misdeeds of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been fired from her post as a host of “X Factor Italy” after sexual assault claims surfaced against her last week.

“Audiences will still see [Asia Argento] on the first seven episodes of the season, which were already shot earlier this summer, beginning Sept 6,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The episodes include initial auditions to narrow down competitors for the 12 final spots.The live portion of the show will officially begin with a new judge and the main cast from Oct. 25.”

Argento was outed by the New York Times last week. for settling a sexual assault claim filed against her in civil court by a man with whom Argento slept when he was only 17. She was 33 at the time. Legally, anyone under the age of 18 is presumed incapable of consenting to sex. Argento settled the case with her victim in the midst of taking down Weinstein for his sexual escapades.

Big League Politics reported:

“I am deeply shocked and hurt by having read news that is absolutely false,” Asia Argento told New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali. “I have never had any sexual relationship with [Jimmy] Bennett.”

Argento made that lie public Tuesday morning, only for it to be exposed several hours later when damning photos and text conversations were published by TMZ.

A photo shows the pair lying in bed together.

A text conversation shows Argento admitting to having sex with the teen boy.

“I had sex with him it felt weird,” she said. “I didn’t know he was a minor until the shakedown letter.”

“Producers FremantleMedia Italia and Sky Italia are expected to make a statement shortly, but previously said that although they hired the actress for her TV and music skills, not for her status in the #MeToo movement, they would not work with her if the allegations were proved true,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Argento has yet to publicly speak about the news.

Hollywood Abuser Amber Heard Fired From ‘Aquaman 2’ After Domestic Violence Admission

Heard was caught on tape admitting she beat ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Published

on

Hollywood actress Amber Heard has officially been dropped from the sequel to hit movie Aquaman after shocking audio emerged of the starlet admitting that she beat her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The News International reported on Wednesday that Heard has been removed from the project, as Warner Bros wants to distance themselves from the toxic femme whose public reputation has taken a hit as her illicit dealings have surfaced.

Big League Politics reported on the release of hidden audio earlier this year in which Heard boasted about beating Depp and mocked the exacerbated movie star:

Depp maintained his innocence throughout Heard’s public campaign to paint him as an abuser, and now audio recordings back his story up. The Daily Mail obtained the audio this week that essentially vindicates Depp, and indicates that Heard is another grifter enabled by the senseless anti-male hysteria of the #MeToo movement.

“You are f**king killing me. Your f**king people are trying to kill me,” Depp told Heard as he pleaded with her to go to a mediator for their ongoing divorce.

“You’ve turned me into a… my boy goes to school and has kids go, so your f**king dad’s a wife beater?” he added.

She taunted Depp, claiming that a jury would never believe his story that she initiated the violence that occurred during their tumultuous relationship.

“Do you know I’m a 115, well not anymore, but I was a 115lb, almost 115lb woman,” Heard told Depp in the audio recording. “You’re going to get up on the stand, Johnny, and say, she started it? Really?”

Depp has pushed back against Heard in the public eye, even filing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against her for the op/ed that was published and circulated widely by the fake news.

“Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse; she is a perpetrator,” the lawsuit claims, alleging that Heard created false evidence and phony injury photos for the press.

In another audio recording, Heard admits to slapping Depp in the face.

“I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched,” she told Depp.

The divorce of Heard and Depp has been a particularly gruesome proceeding with Heard attempting to play the victim at every turn, even emerging as an early hero for the #MeToo movement.

“Two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out,” she wrote in a Washington Post op/ed in Dec. 2018, whining about how her pitiful attempt to take Depp to the cleaners was so difficult for her.

Heard is learning that her actions have consequences, and being a privileged princess in the age of female empowerment cannot protect her from the fallout of her disgusting and deceptive actions.
