Dustin Hoffman grilled over sexual misconduct claims

Dustin Hoffman grilled over sexual misconduct claims

No, he's livid-seriously livid-that John Oliver did not call Dustin Hoffman "Mr. Hoffman" while questioning the actor about the culture of sexual harassment that permeates Hollywood. You have indicted me...

A starry anniversary discussion of the film Wag the Dog turned testy Monday when moderator John Oliver confronted Dustin Hoffman about allegations of sexual harassment.

Hoffman was joined on stage with costar of the film, Robert De Niro, and director Barry Levinson. The alleged incident took place during the filming of the movie, Death of a Salesman, in 1985. Hoffman continued to reiterate that working on a film for hours, they have to blow off some steam and that all that was said was merely harmless banter between "family". Hoffman responded to the accusation and said, "I have the utmost respect for women and feel bad that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation". Referring to Hoffman, he added: "But you and I are not the victims here".

Trying to fully to understand how one's response could be a dismissal of the accuser is critical. Almost the entire rest of the discussion was then dominated by Oliver, Hoffman and the subject of sexual harassment. "That's 40 years ago". It feels like dismissals or recontextualizing it is not addressing it. But it's an act that often slides the focus away from the pain caused by the accused. But they were sexual in terms of the humour of it. "Dustin Hoffman said, 'No, it didn't go down like that, ' and then motherf-ing John Oliver kept going", Rapaport recalled. The easy way is not to bring anything up. "Unfortunately, that leaves me at home later at night hating myself, [asking, ] 'Why the f*** didn't I say something?' No one stands up to powerful men". 'Why the ... didn't I say something?

A flurry of sexual assault allegations has occurred this year against powerful men in the U.S. entertainment, media and political worlds. You've made the case better than anyone else can.

"It's shocking to me you don't see me more clearly", he then said to Oliver. "Because there's no point in [an accuser] lying".

According to the Independent, the exchange between the two saw Oliver grilling Hoffman on the accusations, while Hoffman attempts to explain his side.

"I'm totally against any sexual harassment in any way, shape or form". Among those reasons are fear of retaliation, not trusting the justice system, and feeling embarrassed that others would know. She was soon drowned out by other people, one of whom said "Shame on you". "What response do you want?' - Hoffman 'It doesn't seem self-reflective in the way the situation demands" - Oliver". It's a way of "apologizing" while saying that you did nothing wrong and the problem here is that the other person is too sensitive. It's a tough question - and a much-needed one.

Hoffman, a known name in the industry, had been accused of sexual misconduct. It might be only five questions, but thinking about them will ensure that people are held accountable for their actions and survivors of abuse are supported.
