Standards and their opposite

Gavin McInnes states the obvious since the entertainment industry seems to have lost track:

I like pop culture, too. Allen’s Husbands and Wives is a very well-made movie, and it’s hard not to tap your toes to Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” But legally, a song and dance doesn’t absolve you of rape. It’s fun to go to movies, and listening to music is a blast, but we’re meant to be a civilized nation. If our entertainers fuck children, let’s consider throwing them in jail. At the very least, let’s have a moratorium on giving pedophiles the lifetime achievement award.
I find it striking that Joe Paterno became anathema to college football because he once employed Jerry Sandusky. Yet Hollywood can celebrate men like Allen, Polansky, and Liberace.

Let's not forget Jeffrey Epstein and his BFF's Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos:

"The only thing that gets you shunned in New York society is poverty."
