Rob Schneider is known for goofy comedy heavy on the fart jokes and bad puns and light on deep meaning, but his recent comments are absolutely no laughing matter.
No, it's not what you may be thinking. Rob Schneider was <i>not</i> sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein is however just "the tip of the iceberg" as far as entrenched sexual exploitation goes in LaLa Land. Schneider explains the agents, casting directors, producers, directors are rife with abusive power-trippers and sexual predators. There is not one woman it hasn't happened to Schneider says.
"There was a gross director and it happened to me." A director "who has passed away" invited him up to his hotel room and while reclining in a bathrobe asked Schneider to crawl around on the ground. According to James Van Der Beek he too was harassed by a creepy director "who had passed." Actor Terry Crewes also opened up abouut the rampant abuse making it clear that gender is no barrier to assault and abuse from the Hollywood elite.

Schneider, like Rose McGowan not only spoke out against the abusers, but the rape enablers ("pimps and madams" as Anne Coulter put it). "To those being silent in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassments of women, how will you be looked at the next time you are 'outraged?'" What's worse is, as has been mentioned time and again by Corey Feldman, Rose McGowan and others. The monsters at the top are still there and still doing the same thing. As Weinstein has shown us, you can get away with a lot if the price is right.
