CBS sociopath and serial creeper Les Moonves is out of a job. Good news. He's also getting a $120 million dollar exit package, despite the fact 12 women have accused him of sexual abuse. Bad news.
This guy is a monster.
And just to add to your rage:
Remember "Designing Women"? "Evening Shade"? Well, the creator of those, the terrifically funny and smart Linda Bloodworth Thomason, was once in the cross-hairs of Moonves' psychopathic rage.
And he ruined her career for sport.
"This is not the article you might be expecting about Les Moonves. It’s not going to be wise or inspiring. It’s going to be petty and punishing. In spite of my proper Southern mother’s admonition to always be gracious, I am all out of grace when it comes to Mr. Moonves. In fact, like a lot of women in Hollywood, I am happy to dance on his professional grave. And not just any dance — this will be the Macarena, the rumba, the cha-cha and the Moonwalk. You get the idea."
Oh. This is going to be good.
"I was never sexually harassed or attacked by Les Moonves. My encounters were much more subtle, engendering a different kind of destruction."
She goes on to say Moonves killed all her shows at the height of her career. She didn't work for seven years.
"People asked me for years, “Where have you been? What happened to you?” Les Moonves happened to me."
Sexual predation isn't about sex. Every man outed has had the resources to pay to get his rocks off. It's about anger and power. Les Moonves never had to touch Linda Bloodworth Thomason to destroy her. https://t.co/RD3jtueZBW
