Morrissey Defends Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein In Sexual Assault Controversy

A high-level Los Angeles Police Department source told ABC News that the department is now investigating about 22 alleged sex crimes cases linked to Hollywood and the entertainment industry.

He also claimed that with Weinstein, people "know exactly what's going on" - and suggested that some victims were disappointed that they hadn't been given a "great career". He even branded his being replaced on Ridley Scott's film "All the Money in the World" as "ridiculous".

Director Ridley Scott has ordered that his performance as oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty be deleted and the scenes reshot.

Anthony Rapp broke decades of silence to allege Spacey made sexual advances towards him after a party in NY in 1986.

Speaking to Germany's Der Spiegel newspaper, the 58-year-old said: "Anyone who ever said "I like you" to someone else is suddenly being charged with sexual harassment".

Morrissey has condemned the decision to re-cast Kevin Spacey in a film following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The press release states that consumer complaints led to the discovery of the issue, but no injuries have been reported. Trader Joe's said products with other "inspected" codes are not affected because they were prepared at different sites.

"You have to ask, where were the boy's parents".

“I dont know how things are with you, but I have never been in situations like these in my youth. "Never. I was always aware of what could happen", Morrissey continued. "But if the incident had gone very very well, and they had enjoyed it and it had led to an incredible career, they wouldn't mention it".

On Thursday, his former employers at London's Old Vic Theatre said their investigation had turned up 20 accounts of alleged inappropriate behavior. Says Morrissey, people could realize what was happening and let it happen, alluding to sex, but the process they could not like or they felt ashamed.

As for the many actresses who were invited to Harvey Weinstein's hotel room over the years and been sexually harassed, Morrissey thinks it's more a case of the women "playing along" and regretting it later on because "they feel embarrassed or disliked".

I was dragged into the room'. "I hate to be that cynical because I hate rape and I hate attack and I hate sexual situations that's forced on a person against their will, but in many many situations you look at the circumstances and you think that the person who is called the victim is merely disappointed".

He added: 'I hate rape.
