I hear you're a pest now, Noel Clarke?

BBC News - Bafta suspends Noel Clarke over harassment claims
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-56937479

He's denying any wrongdoing, yet apparently 20 women have come forward

20 is a bit dubious.

If it were 21 women i'd be more inclined to believe it tbh.

I wonder if, when he goes into Starbucks and orders a coffee, they ask him his name to write on the cup, he says "Noel Clarke" and they write CARKE?

Making it up for fabulous cash prizes, no doubt.

Just logged on to say 'Mickey the idiot' and then fuck off again.

Pretty pissed off with this though - I always say 'innocent until proven guilty' - this is a newspaper article after all... but 20 accusers? And the article's very detailed. Plus the lawyer defences are exactly the sort of thing you'd expect to hear if there was stuff to hide. This doesn't sound very encouraging. Seriously, one of the characters from Doctor Who that I loved as a child. I've had better ends to the day.

Anyway, I shall now say 'Mickey the idiot' and then fuck off again.

QuoteBefore hanging up, Clarke said he would apologise to any women he may have made sexually inappropriate remarks about. "If a bunch of people go: he commented on my bum, or he mentioned my tits, it's like– why do you need to take it this far?" said Clarke. "I'll just say sorry to you. Tell me and I'll be like: I'm so sorry. You're right, I said that, I was wrong."

That's how you write forum posts, isn't it? New to this.

One, maybe two accusers and you can go the 'innocent until proven guilty' route, but with 20 it becomes far more difficult. That's a constant pattern of offending. And, yeah, I bet the Guardian's lawyers have been all over this before publishing.

He's worked hard at his career and, professionally at least, he deserved the BAFTA recognition, but he can't blame anyone other than himself that it led directly to this apparently career-ending conclusion.

But it is a little bit staggering to me that this far into the #MeToo era there's still plenty of men who are still getting away with it.

British celebs might finally be getting their #MeToo wave. A lot of people really dodged a bullet in 2017/18. Might be in for some shockers, although we're probably all quite numb at this point.

It's pretty damning stuff. A LONG article, too - we're talking Guardian Long Read length. They're not pulling their punches.

Seriously? The others I'll buy but nice, dull Martin Freeman? Do you mean Morgan?

I have a pal who has acted in a couple Noel Clarke things, so I asked her what her experience was: 'A few creepy inappropriate remarks and a generally a bit of a cunt' was her verdict.

It's a shame. He'd just learnt how to act.

Edit: ... like a cunt!

There were a few sly digs at John Barrowman on TV Burp

When I first read about this I mistakenly thought Noel Coward was cancelled.

There's a clip going around of Noel Clarke talking about Barrowman's harassy behaviour on set, all in a light-hearted manner of course https://twitter.com/The66Ramblers/status/1140999393274814464

Oh God, that's disgusting. Barrowman has always come across as a loud narcissistic guy you'd hate to get stuck with on a night out. Now it seems more sinister.

If others come forward, then Barrowman is going the same way as Louis CK

Even the woke Dalek faction are after him.

The Dog

Never met him, but there's an episode of Doctor Who where, if you look closely, you can clearly see he is thinking about my penis. I should have complained really, but it was a different time.

I've heard rumours that Freeman is a cunt, and it doesn't entirely surprise me. Dull? He doesn't seem dull to me. Nice? He also doesn't seem nice. I've known the type.


Rev+

For fuck's sake.  Everything about his public demeanor over the years has indicated he'd be the last type of person to face accusations like this.

The nice guy facade, and all that.

It is of course important to remember that he's not been proven guilty of anything.  On the other hand, that many accusations?  Yeah, get fucked Mickey.
