Allegations Concerning Asia Argento


For activists in the #MeToo movement, a horror scenario rolled out this morning that has overwhelmed many of us. Asia Argento, a #MeToo activist, has been accused of paying off a child-actor regarding sexual assault. I've been in touch with many activists in the #MeToo movement and have been communicating this story to many of them. Many of us are in shock and need a little time processing this & researching it. After reading the article about it, I put up the tweets mentioned in this article, to ask Asia for a statement.



At this moment, I'm still gathering information about what happened. I'm waiting for a statement from Asia Argento and Jimmy Bennett, and I hope they both will make one soon, so I can address the situation with their statements included in an opinion article.

Personally, I'm very overwhelmed by this situation, and I've given myself some time to think about it and research it, before addressing it completely. If no statement will be made by Asia Argento within 3 weeks, I will address this situation and my opinion, regardless, given I've written about Asia Argento and #MeToo before.

I know that people who follow me for #MeToo news would want me to address this - and please know - I want to address this myself already. However, my court-case against the man who raped me is in September, so I have very little time to write because I'm overwhelmed with appointments regarding my own case. I want to address this situation in a proper in-depth article, and for that, I need time. For now, I just wanted to point out this story so others are aware of it and can research it already.
