That's literally the best silver lining I got wrt the X-movies.
Aside from a few scenes in each, and the entirety of Logan.

Well the later ones a bit messy (except Day of Future Past which is excellent imo).

Best one for me is the first X-Men as the premise is quite simple and straight to the point. Rogue being my fav and had enormous potential. Later films she's like non-existent, what a waste.

Yeah, but the casting in X3... Well let's just say that whole movie is messed up.

But that's like 99.9% of all the other accusers of everyone so far. No formal charges and no sentencing.

She (Melanie) has since admitted it.

I hope that she's punished severely.

It's not quite an admission. She's not saying it happened, she's just saying the other chick never said "no" about anything ever.

Although yeah. While the 70s Show Dude gets fired from a show because of allegations that became charges he was legally acquitted of years ago and other dudes are losing their shows/movies left and right over mere allegations... something is sure wonky if Melanie doesn't at least lose her record deal.

I presume you are not talking about just terminating the job or something like that?

I hope that she loses her job, money, reputation - just about everything that she has ever gained from her singing career.

Did either R Kelly or Chris Brown lose theirs?

As for the issue that she never said no...
Folks should be waiting for a yes, and not a no.
Yes shouldn't be the default answer when none is given, no should be.

Makes me think of this:

That would be news to me.

“Al Franken denies report he has decided to resign from the Senate.”

Uh uh. He said he would cooperate with an investigation by the Congressional Ethics committee.
Regardless of whether he resigns, there should be an investigation.
If for no other reason than to set precedent.

I just checked out Melanie Martinez's background/work information. She has a habit of sexualizing babies.

Th-That's disgusting. Just, how ... who the HELL does that?! Like, I ... just can't even, yo ...

This world is sick.

**********

I hate when people make general stupid statements like this: "the world is sick", "humanity is disgusting", yeah, it's like you just arrived to the human world.
Like you have never interacted with human beings beyond your family. Like you have never watched news on TV. Like you have never studied history.

Humanity always had depraved shitheads, maniacs, rapists, abusers and the like since it was evolved from apes. And it's not like apes do not practice those things either.

If you so disgusted by humanity...well, I dunno, what to recommend to you. Go to the forest and live there alone. Others, who are good people, who outnumber idiots and creeps by a wide margin, will continue to improve on society bit by bit. But you, in your vehement disgust can continue to cry from a corner "everything is bad", "everyone are bad" and so on.
We see who will contribute to human civilization more.
