Will it ever be okay for prominent #MeToo predators to return into society after they’ve “done their time?” Scroll down to see the results.
Back in the news, #MeToo has recently disgraced celebrities like Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose making their first steps back into the public eye, according to the New York Times. There has been controversy on what justice would look like for these men and whether they have ‘done their time’ yet or not.
Many wonder if these alleged accusers should be welcomed back into the spotlight or their careers at all.
Recently, comedian Louis C.K. performed his first stand-up set at a club since admitting to sexual misconduct last year. In response, comedian Michael Black posted on Twitter saying, “Will take heat for this, but people have to be allowed to serve their time and move on with their lives. I don’t know if it’s been long enough, or his career will recover, or if people will have him back, but I’m happy to see him try.”
He immediately received heavy criticism for his comment, and many people had a lot to say. The owner of the Comedy Cellar, Noam Dworman, said he was in a tough position, being a business owner.
“I understand that some people will be upset with me. I care about my customers very much. Every complaint goes through me like a knife. And I care about doing the right thing, ” he said. “There can’t be a permanent life sentence on someone who does something wrong.”
Clearly, there have been views all over the spectrum on the #MeToo movement and its predators. Read more about this story on the New York Times here.
