Ex American Idol Producer Says Ryan Seacrest Should Still Host Despite Sexual Harassment Allegation
Former “American Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe is still loyal to his old show and its host Ryan Seacrest.
Seacrest is currently embroiled in a sexual allegation scandal involving his former stylist – and was snubbed by many actresses on the red carpet during the Oscars.
Lythgoe told TMZ that Seacrest can’t be assumed to be guilty based on merely one allegation. He also points out that no other women have come forward.
Ah yes, spoken like a true misogynist p*g. This is the Nigel Lythgoe we’ve always known.
One of the main points of the #MeToo movement is to remove the stigma of coming forward – because it already takes so much to do so. A lot of people who don’t get it have already labeled this woman a money-grabbing wh*re merely by coming out and accusing Ryan Seacrest, one of the most powerful personalities in Hollywood. And just because only one woman has accused Seacrest of sexual misconduct doesn’t mean it’s not true!
Looks like I am boycotting “American Idol” for as long as they have Seacrest hosting. ABC should replace him to avoid anymore negative PR.
