We thought that of Greenwood's victim at the time, along with the evidence that we all heard and read, and yet he is now playing football again and being paid a fortune for it.

I think you are right about him being finished though, but he was already done in the mainstream to be honest. Its why I see him ending up with the rest of the scumbags on that tv channel.

I appreciate that I say this having not watched though. I will try to but don't know how far I will get.

I wonder how many male comedians have a what’s app group to protect each other?

It really was grim.

I'd like to think there would be enough evidence to bring charges but we all know that most rape/sexual assault allegations never get as far as a charging decision and even of those that do, most don't end with a conviction. Especially if the accused is high profile.

There wasn't anything in the programme that wasn't in the article, really.

You could be right Mog, in that he might escape jail, but much as I think he should rot there, being ostracised will be punishment for someone like him. If he never gets to go anywhere on a red carpet, doesn't get to hang out with his celebrity mates and women take to the hills at the sound of his voice he'll take it badly. Nowhere near justice, I know, but it'll hit him in his ego, where it hurts.

It was very hard to watch. I need a drink.

I really hope he gets charged, but I don't think he will.

Musk is also revolting. I'm going to come off Twitter. I don't want to be putting a penny in that man's pocket.

I’m really sad about this. I loved him about 15 years ago. I’m about to watch now and it sounds fucking awful.

I left Twittex a while ago and have never regretted it. If anything important happens there, someone will screenshot it.

I hope Brand's wife has support; even if she doesn't believe any of the allegations it must be hellish to be looking after two small children and be pregnant while this stuff hits the fan. And if she does believe the allegations, that's even more hellish.

I’ve been thinking about that, Rosy. Can’t imagine how she is.

I can’t watch it but have read that article. It’s horrific.

Apparently Dannii Minogue called him a “vile predator” years ago. He’s horrible, gives off major creep vibes even without these allegations.

Though there are a lot of people who should be wary of their past behaviour, especially 30+ year old comedians having relationships with 16 year olds.

Emma Barnett :love: is back on fire at Women’s Hour today and had an interview with ‘Alice’ which was pretty damning and shocking.

Even Andrew Pierce has pulled up a fellow scumbag presenter on GB News about a tweet she made in defence of the indefensible.

So the BBC are copying Dispatches and not releasing the information.

Will it be a similar theme to the last and oust another comedian? Walliams is apparently trending on Twitter.

I’ve not read the article, but the headline was Walliams suing to BGT production company, so presumably trending about that?

Sadly, that is probably quite possible and likely.

I have always had quite a hatred for Walliams.
