Morrissey spoke in defense of Weinstein and Spacey


The actor and the producer both faced numerous sexual assault allegations faced a lot of backlash. But nobody expected they would find someone in celebrity circles to defend them. But it happened and that someone was Morrissey. Now in a new interview with Spiegel Online, Morrissey says that it’s enough to tell someone you like them to be accused of harassment. And if not to say that you like someone they just would not know. “Of course, there are extreme cases, rape is disgusting, every physical attack is repulsive. But we have to see it in relative terms,” he added. But he still believes that such cases are in minority. To his mind people just too awkward when it comes to romantic things and that is why they can treat some behavior as aggressive. : “[I] was wondering where the boy’s parents were. One wonders if the boy did not know what could happen. I do not know about you, but I’ve never been in situations like this in my youth. Never, he commented Spacey’s case, “I always knew what could happen. When you are in somebody’s bedroom, you have to be aware of where that can lead to. That’s why it does not sound very credible to me. It seems to me Spacey has been unnecessarily attacked.” As for those who made allegations against Weinstein Morrissey said: “Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it. And then they turn it around and say: ‘I was attacked, I was surprised, I was dragged into the room.’ But if everything had gone well and had it given them a great career, they would not talk about it.”
