    There's a big difference. What Grant did was consensual between both parties.

Yes but in a car, in a public place, with a street hooker & in the USA, lol \:\-D

If it had happened in France instead of Hollywood, back then, the cops would have had a good laugh, Grant's lawyer & agent would have arranged the matter with the French police and it would have been the end of the story.

Nowadays, that would be different (laws have changed even in France).

Back then, he was one of the favorite male actors of the female audience and he was dating Elizabeth Hurley. Even in France, it was the scandal of the year. (^_^')

I was young back then but I didn't understand how he could have been so stupid.

Except if I am mistaken, so far, nobody has said that Barrowman forced himself on someone.

NB: it doesn't mean that I approve his behaviour.
It is just that I don't like what someone on Noel Clarke's side did to divert attention.


    They'll throw Barrowman under the bus in a heartbeat if it means protecting their reputation.

It has been the same everywhere since media are media.
The Weinstein affair was the trigger of the current buzz of sexual abuse allegations because it is a true scandal (over 80 testimonies!!!).
But this kind of scandal has always existed & companies have always protected their reputation.
In the case of Barrowman, it takes more than that to destroy a reputation.
I mean, how many rockers have been known to show their private parts since the 1970s?

In the case of Noel Clarke, it is not the same scope: there are consistent corroborating testimonies of more than 20 witnesses between 2004 and 2019, including allegations of sexual harassment, bullying & threats. It is not just a case of clumsy & heavy-handed courtship or exhibitionism while drunk. He may be innocent but I have a hard time believing that he is. I cannot see how he could be.
