So Olivia Munn got Steven Wilder Striegel removed from the movie The Predator after she found out he was a registered sex offender. He apparently did his time. Is this an acceptable thing to do especially when the scene was a sex scene? Was the studio doing the right thing removing him from the movie?
I would say they should have just scrapped the scene and left it at that.

Here's the thing. He did his time, and the government is watching him like a hawk for the rest of his life, that's the punishment... throw the dude in prison for life or whatever if he does it again... but you can't keep incepting new punishments to someone FOREVER (Unless like... you know he's Loki and if he gets loose he'll destroy the world or something but then you should prolly have just EXECUTED Loki anyway... would have saved on Ragnoroks)

THAT being said a SEX scene is about as fuckin' vulnerable a position as you can force your actors to participate in (outside of say... actual factual pornographic actors in a porn video) and either EVERYONE is comfortable filming the scene or it shouldn't be done period... get body doubles or whatever you gotta do cause I don't think it's unreasonable for someone to say they don't feel comfortable filming a sex scene with a registered sex offender, THAT is perfectly understandable BUT... you shouldn't have power over their EMPLOYMENT over it... you should also do your research on who you are hiring so that you don't hire someone you might just wind up firing later but that's neither here nor there... power over employment itself is its own can of worms I am NOT going into today and do not desire feedback for! Too political for this venue.

Scrap the scene or film it with body doubles if for some dumb reason this sex scene is just sooooooo important to your artistic vision (and spoiler alert, it almost never is) while the government does what it does and watches the registered sex offender like a HAWK...... cause THATS the punishment, they're being watched by the government, that's the payment for their crime... but Christ does the world have a 'punishment' fetish this day and age. NEVER is soon enough for someone's mistakes to be forgiven and when informed the public will hound a person until they are DEAD whether they asked for the attention or not. I AM a little less sympathetic to this sort of thing for Actors and other 'famous' people who knew what they were doing and getting into but went and done stupid shit anyway... but the public's behavior in this venue extends beyond famous folk and are just as willing to hound Joe Nobody who accidentally went viral with a poor tweet until their lives are in shambles. We need to grow the fuck up.

These cases are seldom as cut and dried as they are made out to be. Munn’s concerns about the actor’s past May only been one part of the equation. Other things may have occurred, but what happened with Munn was key. It may have been unrelated to Munn but that was what was picked up and the powers that be didn’t want to add insult to injury. They may have decided he wasn’t what they were looking for and Munn’s concerns just gave them a convenient off ramp.

Read that Depp doesn't really care about the outcome of the trial. He just wanted to expose Amber for revenge. He's currently jamming with Jeff Beck

The best revenge is Living Well, I think unless he loses the countersuit, Depp will be living far better than Heard.

Split decision with Depp coming off the better winner. They both made defamatory statements.

The attorneys win with their legal fees.
