AICN founder Harry Knowles accused of sexual assault



http://www.austin360.com/entertainme...bwlIiYaQL60ZM/

All of the Talkbacks are being shut down on www.aintitcool.com but there's a couple still active. They're very worth going to, especially this one:

A lot of people already saying goodbye on there.

Wow.. I haven't thought about Aint it Cool in about a million years. I used to read it religiously in the late 90s, and I have to say at the time, even to a dirty teenage boy, Knowles came off as a bit of a perv.

Yeah, I heard about this this morning.
Reading the goodbye messages from long-time contributors took me aback.

This is now the only remaining Talkback I can find. Even that one from yesterday has been deleted, and tons of others.

I suppose the question is, if true, why now, why not years ago when Harry was a megastar and probably had more to lose (like money in settlements)...?

It seems very weird. And it's long past the statute of limitations.

On Sept. 11, it came to light that former Birth.Movies.Death editor Devin Faraci -- who stepped down from the Drafthouse-owened publication in October 2016 after an accusation of sexual misconduct -- has been subsequently employed by the Drafthouse as an in-house copywriter.

The ensuing scandal has cast a dark shadow on the Austin movie institution, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. One Fantastic Fest programmer resigned in protest, Faraci published and retracted a statement, Drafthouse owner Tim League explained his actions in re: Faraci, the apologized, then stated he wouldn't be attending Fantastic Fest.
This is why it came up.
