George Clooney Accused of Sexual Harassment
Let’s face it. Hollywood makes Islam’s treatment of women look rather benign.
The patriarchal society of Hollywood creates and emboldens misogynistic sociopaths like Harvey Weinstein. And it’s been that way for decades.

Tippi Hedren of Alfred Hitchcock’s Birds fame recently commented on her “Weinstein” moments from decades ago.
And like all Democrats, Hollywood only refined its bad behavior, learning how to harm in plain sight.
You can bet that almost ALL Hollywood male stars have grabbed women by the “naughty bits”. We recently showcased Ben Affleck’s behaviors, but honestly, what he did is tame in comparison to what goes on routinely.
Now we get information about sanctimonious Hollywood royalty, George Clooney.
He now faces allegations of sexual harassment of Vanessa Marquez.
Marquez starred with Clooney for three seasons on the hit show “ER.” While there, she attempted to expose the daily verbal harassment from Clooney, as she reported the behavior to the show’s executive producer John Wells 25 years ago.
He considered Marquez bothersome, and dismissed her allegation. According to Page Six that’s when the trouble started.
“A former ‘ER’ actress claims that she was sexually and racially harassed daily on set — and George Clooney helped ‘blacklist’ her from Hollywood when she complained. ‘Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up abt harassment on ER. [W]omen who don’t play the game lose career I did,’ tweeted Vanessa Marquez.”
She even accused actor Eriq La Salle and crew member Terence Nightingall of being “p—sy grabbers”.
She then claims she suffered racial abuse about her Mexican heritage came from “Anthony, Noah, Julianna,” referring to cast members, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, and Julianna Margulies.
Marquez voiced her concerns 25 years ago, and nothing came of them.
Ask yourself if a Mexican woman could complain in the “real” world outside of Hollywood, and nobody listen.
Marquez learned quickly that challenging Hollywood “golden boy” Clooney has its consequences. How does a very beautiful Mexican actress go from one of the top rated shows at the time to relative obscurity?
Clooney denies the claim.
“I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted,” the two-time Oscar winner, 56, said in a statement to Us Weekly on Friday, October 13. “I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn’t affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn’t.”
You seen Marquez in anything since?
George Clooney appears to have a pattern:
Now we learn that George Clooney was friends with Harvey Weinstein for years, but he can’t believe what he’s learned about him.
Clooney — who admittedly received his “first big break” in Hollywood from Weinstein — told The Daily Beast Monday: “It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with. Harvey’s admitted to it, and it’s indefensible.”
“I’ve known Harvey for 20 years. He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on From Dusk Till Dawn, he gave me my first big break as a director with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” Clooney said. “We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior—ever.”
“A lot of people are doing the ‘you had to know’ thing right now, and yes, if you’re asking if I knew that someone who was very powerful had a tendency to hit on young, beautiful women, sure,” Clooney said. “But I had no idea that it had gone to the level of having to pay off eight women for their silence, and that these women were threatened and victimized.”
Clooney is right. He has no idea. About anything.
He hung around a guy for 20 years and watched him “hit on young, beautiful women,” but he never put two and two together.
Clooney apparently notices very little around him to be so politically vocal.
As for Marquez, she’s had a long career in Hollywood. She played a student in Stand and Deliver, a film about Mexican students excelling in math. She had other decent roles leading up to her biggest role on ER.
Post-run-in with Clooney, Marquez has done little. Coincidence?
Think Harvey Weinstein would hire a pretty Mexican actress who has a “reputation” of being a whistle-blower?
