This thread is amazing at ruining all the the stuff you liked when you were a kid, Hollywood was a fucking mistake, nuke Los Angeles.
People thought Weinstein would actually face jail, like a regular peasant or something, lol. Remember it will always be who you know, always. Why do you think Roman Polanski and the like are living up overseas while someone like Assange is locked in a hole somewhere? Also the rumor is the Judge is ready to throw out the Kevin Spacey case..... just because.

@V0dka I heard she's Islam now and that she's trying to get some rich Middle Eastern rich man to finance her. While hooking on the side for money. Because she's burned pretty much every bridge in Hollywood and destroying her looks with partying and drugs. That millionaire Russian man didn't marry her so I guess Dubai is the only option left.
I guess she's got that beach party show though now, but she'll never do another big movie again. Escorting it is, then.
I thought converting to Islam would rebuild all those hollywood bridges though.

You're saying if I have enough money I can make Shawn Johnson's taco pop?
Maybe, not sure now that she is married. But aside from the money you need the social connections to have people know you'll be discreet.

Soon after the Olympics and her retirement she was strapped for cash, no endorsements, minimal appearance and speaking fees, she didn't have the height to be a on site trainer for anyone but 5 year olds. No other work experience. Celebrities aren't going to stoop to working at Denny's. They are going to leverage their fame for a big pay day no one will ever know about.

Who gets a private suite on a Jet to Dubai out of nowhere? When they have no money coming in? Someone who wants to see you, privately. She was 19 years old in this video. A 19 year old Olympic Gymnast coming ride your cock? I'm surprised the guy didn't die honestly.

Okay, I know I'm several years too late about the whole Harry Weinstein and #MeToo bullshit, but I have something to say about Katya Mtsitouridze and whoring oneself out from personal experiences. And here, it's gonna be a huge powerlevel, so I'll just put it in spoilers. And I'm sorry about this powerlevel, but holy shit did seeing her #MeToo allegations made me mad, and I had nowhere to vent irl before.

Okay, so for those of you that aren't familiar with Russian cinema, Katya Mtsitouridze is a Georgian TV host that runs a show called "Eto Kino", meaning "This is Cinema", and works with Rosskino.
She's one if not the face of Russian film critics. She also works at a high rank position with Rosskino, which basically sells and buys movies and series for exploitation by Russian tv, so she's sent to all the major film festivals like Cannes, MIP etc.

Basically, she's a big deal in Russia. And she got to where she was by whoring herself out to all the important men in the industry that weren't gay, which isn't as many as you'd expect. And it's not just a "oh, she's big in the industry, she must've spread her legs" baseless accusation. My family had a hand in her rise, if you know what I mean.

Okay, so now that we know that she has no issues with trading sex for a career (and I'm not judging here, I actually did respect her very much for all that she had accomplished. And hell, you should see her gym regimen. That's some soldier-type shit right there), lets get to the part where I come in.

Back when I was 14 years old, I was sent to the Cannes Film Festival as an intern of sorts since I was fluent in four languages, and could work as a translator for the Russian Pavilion.
The Russian Pavilion is basically where you have conferences presenting the hot and upcoming Russian movies for sale to foreign buyers. Every country has such a pavilion. They're part of the "Movie market" that happens within the Congress Palace and makes up the bulk of the Festival, beyond all the hype and glamour of movie premieres on the Red Steps out in front.

Katya was my direct responsible during my time there. Hell, the only reason I got there in the first place was thanks to nepotism. Not that I was incompetent mind you, but I was still 14 with little to no professional experience or diplomas yet.

I was living with her and the tv film crew during the entire duration of the Festival. And escorting her to the conferences, social events, parties, and finding food for her and 12 other hungry Russians at 5AM, which is way harder than you think in Southern France where everything opens from 10AM to 8PM.

Anyways, I was 14. Just your regular teen with braces. Clearly not a fucking adult yet. Hell, I went up the Red Steps in 2cm high beach heels from New Look because I hadn't learned to walk in proper high heels yet, but protocol demanded me to wear some.

Long story short, I got pimped out during those two weeks, and while I did get to keep my virginity, I've probably been groped more times than a half naked drunken thot in a sleazy nightclub.

Now, funnily enough, I've had past experiences with being groped and touched inappropriately by a family friend who gave me 1.5k euros for my birthday as an "appeasement gift" when I was 12. (I ended up buying a telescope with that money because I thought it was cool. And man was my sister jealous of me randomly getting that much money. Like "ooh, Дядя Лёня is so nice". If only she knew what it had cost).
So what happened at the Cannes Film Festival wasn't that surprising. And while I still think it's gross and revolting, in the "heat" of the moment, it's like - well, what was I gonna do? Scream "rape"? Please. That would've just ruined myself and my family.

How does Katya fit in one might ask? Well, she approved and encouraged the whole thing, giving me tips on how to dress, whom to go "talk to" at parties starting with the Baoli Beach one etc. I even got a Lancel bag appropriately called "First Flirt" for my cooperation after the fact.
And looking back on it, I've come to the conclusion that the only reason I wasn't actually fully raped, as in penetrated, was because my dad was still important back then. Which makes me feel very bad for all the other interns with less powerful fathers.

Point is, trading sex for favours is just what you do in that industry. And while I didn't need any favours, I did get money, premiere tickets, and jewellery from most of these men for all their inappropriate advances and borderline pedophilia.

Katya is perfectly aware of it. That's how she got to the top, though at an older age. And that's how most everyone gets to the top, and that does include men. K. Ernst, the CEO of Channel 1 Russia is pretty famous for indulging in younger boys in these circles for instance.

So seeing her drop the ball on Weinstein now that it is convenient to play the victim did infuriate me. It's like, if you want to whore yourself out, go for it. I personally have nothing against women that do that, though it's not my cup of tea, and I wouldn't seek it out myself.
But whoring yourself out, and then accusing someone of rape is just scummy af. And I don't get why she didn't take the moral high road and stayed silent on the matter.

Anyways, this whole powerlevel is not about victimhood or whatever. Hell, 40-50 year old drunken men fingering you and groping your barely existent 14 year old boobs isn't the worst that could've happened. And yeah, perhaps it did leave a trauma or whatever, fuck do I know. And hell, I was a frigid bitch after that for a long time. All I'm saying is that it could've been worse if I were just a nobody trying to get by in the industry instead of a privileged little fuck.

This powerlevel is about being fucking mad at these fucking women like Katya for being fucking slimy hypocrites that willingly went to bed for money and power, and then used the whole "believe women" bs mob mentality to drag these men under the bus.

And I'm not saying Weinstein is a good guy here. He's a fucking scummy Jew that probably did rape some actress somewhere. But when women that make careers out of spreading their legs jump on that bandwagon too, it's hard to take all the accusations with the same gravity.

And God, I can't emphasise how much that Katya #MeToo shit pissed me off. She had messaged me about coming back again to the Festival in 2018, and I just blew her off. Hell, I still didn't read her texts over a year later. (And yes, her name in Russian is horribly misspelt in my contact list. I still don't remember what's the proper spelling for it, and honestly, I can't say I really cared, so I just went with the phonetic one).

Perhaps if I had planned a career in the movie industry, I would've answered. And sucked some cock.

Edit: TLDR - Katya introduced me to men that molested my 14 year old ass and encouraged the practice at the Cannes Film Festival, and now went full #MeToo like an attention-hungry whore. REeeee

Yeah I dunno what it is about the hypocritical nature of the #metoo people. People like to portray the image that they got their purely due to their talents and knowledge, but the simple fact is, people will take any advantage neccessary if it will give them a leg up. People don't play by the rules. We like to think they do, but really, give anyone enough incentive and opportunity, they will take it.

Do they just not want to admit the only thing that the only single factor that put them above the rest of the pack was the fact they are willing to service people? Is it image? Or ego? Is it protecting the reputation of feminism?

I guess it’s image mostly. Pretty sure that admitting you sucked cock to get a job instead of doing so on your own merit devaluates anything you stand for.

And I’m not saying they should admit it. It’s more of an unspoken truth in the industry. Like, everyone knows that’s how you get to the top, but no one talks about it.

Hell, at that first Cannes Film Festival I met a Russian tv reporter called Ivan something that took it up the ass to get to where he was. And it’s normal.

The issue here is that these women, after spreading their but cheeks willingly and encouraging other people to do so, decided it’s high time to throw Weinstein under the bus. Like “he’s a gross, slimy, fat Jew, who would care”, but at the same time, say nothing about their own bosses.

I would’ve had some respect for Katya and the rest if they would've just come out and said “yes, I slept with Weinstein to get a job. That’s sadly how the movie industry works. We need to change that”.
But nope, they had to make up rape sob stories and turn the movement into a witch hunt.

Well if someones willing to have sex to get where they are. Out of that group, there's surely people willing to throw others under the bus when it suits them. To raise their own profile. It's why I believe a good portion of the people in the top echelon of any industry aren't nice people, unless when it benefits them. They got to where they are because they were willing to claw their way past other people who were just as unscrupulous. They might not be talented or charismatic or skilled, except in the bedroom, or on the couch, and it turns out that's all that really matters.

Who gets a private suite on a Jet to Dubai out of nowhere? When they have no money coming in? Someone who wants to see you, privately. She was 19 years old in this video. A 19 year old Olympic Gymnast coming ride your cock? I'm surprised the guy didn't die honestly.
When you ask yourself "what business does she have being in Dubai" the answer is always whoring. It's a horribly expensive shit place without functioning plumbing, if they were actually paying for it themselves they could save $20-30k by having a luxury vacation just a strones throw away anywhere around the mediterranean. It's not like the Arab world is a wonderful place for women to frolic either.

Well it makes sense. I've seen girls that feel obliged to "service" guys after a dinner and a movie, even if they don't particularly like them. If a billionaire says he's going to fly you first class, give you a tour of the sights in a chauffeured Bentley, and throw in food, drinks, movies, maybe some designer jewelry, dresses and shoes, and a million dollars. Find me a girl that wouldn't peel panties for that.

"Can you believe this?‽ I am in Dubai! We went on a helicopter ride... went up to the tallest building... what else... went on a yacht...stayed at the Atlantic Hotel, best hotel I've ever been in.... got to spend time with this lovely family... I hope... no. I know I'm gonna see you guys again."

Kevin Spacey's accuser must turn over phone to defense team, a judge rules
(CNN)A phone used by a young man who says Kevin Spacey groped him at a bar in 2016 must be turned over to the actor's defense team for examination, a Massachusetts district judge ruled.
In a hearing last week, Judge Thomas Barrett allowed a defense request to examine the contents of the accuser's phone from July 7, 2016, to December 31, 2017, and denied a defense request for the phone records of the accuser's mother.
Defense attorney Alan Jackson made a fresh request for the phone data Monday, accusing the prosecution of making "misrepresentations," which an assistant district attorney denied.

So actually having to turn over relevant and possibly exculpatory evidence is now "pressuring" the "victim?" Why would it be? If it just proves he's totally guilty he should be thrilled to turn it over right?

Whether the claim is true or not, it's probably a useful way to destroy the credibility of someone if it turns out they were theorizing with their friends they might get a big payday out of the groping that happened years ago.

If you're discussing with your friends how big a payout you might get, before you're discussing with the police about being groped, it's a pretty good indicator that you aren't traumatised by it and your credibility should be called into question.

True enough. But the fact you were groped without consent still is a crime. Whether the Judge thinks your not traumatized enough or credible enough at that point to continue with the charges, that would be helpful for the defense team.

The statute of limitations on "consent" in a two adult scenario needs to be literally 24 hours. If you're not reporting it as a rape straight away then it wasn't rape. If your motivation for reporting it is now you realise you're not going to get a career in Hollywood, and you want to find another way to get paid then it's nearer to bilking a prostitute than rape.

Warner Bros. Reveals Details of Probe That Ousted 'Fuller House' Creator

A studio executive testifies that multiple female writers accused the TV veteran of boasting of orgies, denigrating female directors and expressing the wish that female staffers would get hysterectomies.

Why was Jeff Franklin removed from his role as showrunner of Fuller House?

If one is to believe Franklin, who created Full House in the 1990s and shepherded the recent Netflix reboot until he was dumped at the end of 2018, he was the victim of career ambition. Specifically, in a lawsuit filed in April, Franklin blamed Bryan Behar, who took over showrunning duties upon the expiration of Franklin's three-year deal with Warner Bros.

According to Franklin, Behar seized on the nascent #MeToo movement, and motivated by hatred and aspiration, Behar "concocted a plan to compile unflattering and distasteful information about Franklin that was either fabricated or twisted versions of events and presented it first to the media and then to Warner Brothers in an effort to get Franklin thrown off Fuller House."

It appears as though Warner Bros. won't just stand by to let this account go unchallenged.

Silisha Platon, a vp labor relations at the studio, has now submitted a sworn declaration in Los Angeles Superior Court to support Behar's bid to throw out Franklin's suit.

Platon says the investigation into Franklin's conduct dates all the way back to 2016, which notably, predates the allegations against Harvey Weinstein that helped trigger the #MeToo movement. The probe is said to have commenced after a complaint was made about Franklin's on-set behavior, and during subsequent interviews, concerns were raised about Franklin's handling of pregnancy-related requests for time off for doctor appointments as well as concerns about equal treatment for male and female writers for the show.

However, that wasn't enough to get rid of Franklin, who in his 40-year career had also worked on such shows as Laverne & Shirley, It's Gary Shandling's Show, Hangin' With Mr. Cooper, Stuart Little and Malcolm & Eddie. That initial investigation concluded, according to Platon, with Franklin receiving verbal counseling on appropriate, business-like behavior.

Then, in November 2017, Platon says Warner Bros. received a new complaint that Franklin had created a toxic work environment in the writers room. Platon adds that the studio learned of another female writer making similar claims against Franklin. Thus began a second investigation.

Warner Bros. interviewed eight Fuller House staffers.

One woman said Franklin would talk about orgies he had over the weekend. Another woman, supported by a third, claimed that Franklin had his assistant request that all the writers come to his mansion and they were reminded multiple times to bring their bikinis. Franklin was also said to have complained about having to hire directors who were women or people of color, expressing preference for male writers, apologizing to his staff for not dating Jewish women, describing female directors as "all the same" and making sexualized comments.

"She is probably going to be pregnant next season," Franklin was attributed as saying on one occasion. "I wish I could make all the women on my staff get hysterectomies."

"She's one nose job away from a good f*** about one of the underage girls," went another comment.

Behar himself was interviewed, but that evidently came late in the process, and Platon states his testimony "was not a substantial factor in my concluding that Franklin had created a toxic and inappropriate work environment. Rather, Mr. Behar's statements only corroborated some of the less serious statements made by the other witnesses, including Jane Does 1 through 7, about Jeff Franklin's workplace conduct."

In Behar's own declaration, he swears never speaking to the press about Franklin.

Represented by attorneys at Venable, Behar now looks to strike Franklin's tortious interference claim under California's anti-SLAPP statute, which gives recourse to defendants hauled into court for First Amendment activity in connection with an issue of public interest.

Behar argues he can satisfy the first prong of the SLAPP analysis because alleged statements to Warner Bros. and the media were in furtherance of his free speech rights on a publicly important topic, namely, powerful men in Hollywood engaging in improper workplace behavior.

If the judge accepts that, the burden then shifts to Franklin to establish a probability of prevailing on his claim. Otherwise, the lawsuit fails.

Franklin cannot show alleged statements by Behar are actionable, writes Behar's lawyers.

Behar's memorandum to the judge lays out the proposition that statements to a Warner Bros. investigator are privileged as qualified common interest, meaning they were statements given in good faith as part of a compelled disclosure on a topic of mutual interest.

"To hold otherwise would have a chilling effect on employees' participation in future workplace sexual harassment investigations," states the memo.

To defeat the privilege, Behar says Franklin must establish malice.

"Behar's concern for Franklin's job and his reluctance to participate in the investigation establish that his statements were not motivated by hatred or ill will towards Franklin," continues the court brief. "Indeed, they demonstrate the opposite."

Finally, Behar also argues that he was not a substantial factor in causing Franklin harm.

As stated in Behar's motion, "Simply put, Behar has put forth incontrovertible evidence that his testimony in the investigation into Franklin's workplace behavior was not a substantial factor in the lead investigator's conclusion that there was sufficient evidence that Franklin had created a toxic and inappropriate work environment, and her recommendation to executives at Warner Bros. that Franklin's contract should not be renewed. For this reason alone, Franklin's claim fails."

We'll add comment from Larry Stein, attorney for Franklin, when a statement comes.

Okay, I know I'm several years too late about the whole Harry Weinstein and #MeToo bullshit, but I have something to say about Katya Mtsitouridze and whoring oneself out from personal experiences. And here, it's gonna be a huge powerlevel, so I'll just put it in spoilers. And I'm sorry about this powerlevel, but holy shit did seeing her #MeToo allegations made me mad, and I had nowhere to vent irl before.

Okay, so for those of you that aren't familiar with Russian cinema, Katya Mtsitouridze is a Georgian TV host that runs a show called "Eto Kino", meaning "This is Cinema", and works with Rosskino.
She's one if not the face of Russian film critics. She also works at a high rank position with Rosskino, which basically sells and buys movies and series for exploitation by Russian tv, so she's sent to all the major film festivals like Cannes, MIP etc.

Basically, she's a big deal in Russia. And she got to where she was by whoring herself out to all the important men in the industry that weren't gay, which isn't as many as you'd expect. And it's not just a "oh, she's big in the industry, she must've spread her legs" baseless accusation. My family had a hand in her rise, if you know what I mean.

Okay, so now that we know that she has no issues with trading sex for a career (and I'm not judging here, I actually did respect her very much for all that she had accomplished. And hell, you should see her gym regimen. That's some soldier-type shit right there), lets get to the part where I come in.

Back when I was 14 years old, I was sent to the Cannes Film Festival as an intern of sorts since I was fluent in four languages, and could work as a translator for the Russian Pavilion.
The Russian Pavilion is basically where you have conferences presenting the hot and upcoming Russian movies for sale to foreign buyers. Every country has such a pavilion. They're part of the "Movie market" that happens within the Congress Palace and makes up the bulk of the Festival, beyond all the hype and glamour of movie premieres on the Red Steps out in front.

Katya was my direct responsible during my time there. Hell, the only reason I got there in the first place was thanks to nepotism. Not that I was incompetent mind you, but I was still 14 with little to no professional experience or diplomas yet.

I was living with her and the tv film crew during the entire duration of the Festival. And escorting her to the conferences, social events, parties, and finding food for her and 12 other hungry Russians at 5AM, which is way harder than you think in Southern France where everything opens from 10AM to 8PM.

Anyways, I was 14. Just your regular teen with braces. Clearly not a fucking adult yet. Hell, I went up the Red Steps in 2cm high beach heels from New Look because I hadn't learned to walk in proper high heels yet, but protocol demanded me to wear some.

Long story short, I got pimped out during those two weeks, and while I did get to keep my virginity, I've probably been groped more times than a half naked drunken thot in a sleazy nightclub.

Now, funnily enough, I've had past experiences with being groped and touched inappropriately by a family friend who gave me 1.5k euros for my birthday as an "appeasement gift" when I was 12. (I ended up buying a telescope with that money because I thought it was cool. And man was my sister jealous of me randomly getting that much money. Like "ooh, Дядя Лёня is so nice". If only she knew what it had cost).
So what happened at the Cannes Film Festival wasn't that surprising. And while I still think it's gross and revolting, in the "heat" of the moment, it's like - well, what was I gonna do? Scream "rape"? Please. That would've just ruined myself and my family.

How does Katya fit in one might ask? Well, she approved and encouraged the whole thing, giving me tips on how to dress, whom to go "talk to" at parties starting with the Baoli Beach one etc. I even got a Lancel bag appropriately called "First Flirt" for my cooperation after the fact.
And looking back on it, I've come to the conclusion that the only reason I wasn't actually fully raped, as in penetrated, was because my dad was still important back then. Which makes me feel very bad for all the other interns with less powerful fathers.

Point is, trading sex for favours is just what you do in that industry. And while I didn't need any favours, I did get money, premiere tickets, and jewellery from most of these men for all their inappropriate advances and borderline pedophilia.

Katya is perfectly aware of it. That's how she got to the top, though at an older age. And that's how most everyone gets to the top, and that does include men. K. Ernst, the CEO of Channel 1 Russia is pretty famous for indulging in younger boys in these circles for instance.

So seeing her drop the ball on Weinstein now that it is convenient to play the victim did infuriate me. It's like, if you want to whore yourself out, go for it. I personally have nothing against women that do that, though it's not my cup of tea, and I wouldn't seek it out myself.
But whoring yourself out, and then accusing someone of rape is just scummy af. And I don't get why she didn't take the moral high road and stayed silent on the matter.

Anyways, this whole powerlevel is not about victimhood or whatever. Hell, 40-50 year old drunken men fingering you and groping your barely existent 14 year old boobs isn't the worst that could've happened. And yeah, perhaps it did leave a trauma or whatever, fuck do I know. And hell, I was a frigid bitch after that for a long time. All I'm saying is that it could've been worse if I were just a nobody trying to get by in the industry instead of a privileged little fuck.

This powerlevel is about being fucking mad at these fucking women like Katya for being fucking slimy hypocrites that willingly went to bed for money and power, and then used the whole "believe women" bs mob mentality to drag these men under the bus.

And I'm not saying Weinstein is a good guy here. He's a fucking scummy Jew that probably did rape some actress somewhere. But when women that make careers out of spreading their legs jump on that bandwagon too, it's hard to take all the accusations with the same gravity.

And God, I can't emphasise how much that Katya #MeToo shit pissed me off. She had messaged me about coming back again to the Festival in 2018, and I just blew her off. Hell, I still didn't read her texts over a year later. (And yes, her name in Russian is horribly misspelt in my contact list. I still don't remember what's the proper spelling for it, and honestly, I can't say I really cared, so I just went with the phonetic one).

Perhaps if I had planned a career in the movie industry, I would've answered. And sucked some cock.

Edit: TLDR - Katya introduced me to men that molested my 14 year old ass and encouraged the practice at the Cannes Film Festival, and now went full #MeToo like an attention-hungry whore. REeeee
Goddamn, that is fucked! Jesus. It sounds like you're ok for the most part, that's good, I hope you can manage to find the ability to trust people again as time goes on.

Is #metoo some kind of shielding maneuver? Like, the main #metoo starter lady had sex with an underage guy then utterly trashed him in texts with her friends. This person was grooming kids into the same environment.

Maybe we should take a close look at these accusers. I know that's a fucked up thing to say, but it seems like everyone involved is tangled in this creepy shit, and it's been going on for generations. It becomes really hard to separate victim and perpetrator when the chain goes on like that.

The way i see it, it’s similar to how the male feminist “allies” always turn out to be molesters, rapists, or pedophiles.
Usually people virtue signal to pull attention away from themselves and what they have to hide.

As for my own powerlevel, yes I’m fine. Just thought it was relevant to the thread.

Sought for three days for questioning on a sexual-misconduct allegation, Cuba Gooding Jr. voluntarily surrendered Thursday to New York police, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of "forcible touching" involving an accusation he groped a woman's breast in a New York bar on Sunday.
Det. Martin Brown, a spokesman for the NYPD, told USA TODAY Gooding was charged by the Special Victims unit after he turned himself in and was questioned at a police precinct.
Gooding is expected to be arraigned shortly.
News video posted on Twitter showed police walking a cuffed, smiling Gooding out what appeared to be a back door of the precinct.

Mark Heller, one of Gooding's attorneys who arranged for Gooding to turn himself in to the sex-crime detectives, told USA TODAY he expected Gooding to be arrested and charged with "forcible touching," commonly known as groping.
But Heller insisted prosecutors should decline to prosecute Gooding for lack of evidence of wrongdoing.

"I have viewed the footage (of video surveillance) of the entire evening and did not see one scintilla of criminal culpability on the part of Cuba Gooding," Heller said.
News videos posted on Twitter showed Heller defending Gooding as innocent. He said Gooding would plead not guilty.
"I am completely confident that he will be totally exonerated," Heller said.

The plan for Gooding to surrender was up in the air earlier on Thursday after Heller watched the surveillance video from the bar and hesitated, unable to contact the Manhattan District Attorney's office to discuss whether a prosecution was possible or warranted.
But Gooding alluded to a video tape when he declared himself innocent of the accusation late Tuesday, as he was preparing to board a flight from Los Angeles to New York. He was stopped by a paparazzo who asked him if he was guilty of the accusation.
"No, absolutely not," Gooding said, smiling affably.
In the video of the interview posted by TMZ, Gooding said he was at the bar, met people, took pictures with fans but rejected any suggestion he touched someone inappropriately on purpose or by accident.

"I trust the system, let the process speak for itself," Gooding said as he walked into the terminal, interrupted by a fan seeking a picture. "There's a tape that shows what really happened."
The Oscar-winning actor was accused of drunkenly groping a woman's breast while partying and drinking with her at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in midtown Manhattan on Sunday night.
At least one video posted online (and later deleted) by someone who was in the bar showed Gooding was there that night, holding a microphone and raucously singing with others. It did not show him groping anyone.
Police had been seeking to talk to Gooding, 51, since early Monday to question him about the allegation of "forcible touching" at the bar. Heller said the misdemeanor charge could lead to a potential jail sentence of one year.

The accuser, 29, called police hours after the alleged encounter in the early hours of Monday. So far, she has not been identified, nor has anyone claiming to be the accuser spoken to the media.
Heller told USA TODAY his legal team negotiated an arrangement to allow Gooding to turn himself in to police on Thursday, but that was before he viewed the surveillance video from the bar.

Gooding, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor for 1996's "Jerry Maguire," more recently received plaudits for playing O.J. Simpson on FX's “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
Prior to the current era of widespread #MeToo wariness, which gained force in the fall of 2017, Gooding was criticized for his hard-partying and his behavior towards women.
In March 2017, he was slammed on social media when he lifted up the dress of Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson when he appeared on stage at Los Angeles PaleyFest with his co-stars of "American Horror Story."
