Tech giant says it was justified in terminating four-film deal with director who has since taken $68m legal action.
Amazon cancelled them due to the allegations he facing from his daughter for sexual abuse.
He is denying the allegations and is suing Amazon for breach of contract.
Now they saying he sabotaged the film with #MeToo comments.
I don’t know enough to comment one way or the other and hope if the allegations are substantiated that it goes to trial and Justice served.
I agree with those saying
“The pendulum against the victims was stuck for a really long time and now it’s been released and it’s swung, and maybe it’s swung too far…”
There is cases where lies were told and peoples lives destroyed or victims suffered extensively.
More info on one of the cases I wrote about as it affected us.
