Op-Ed: I’m Disgusted That Danny Glover Did That to All Those Women

Op-Ed | I'm Disgusted That Danny Glover Did That to All Those Women

by Anonymous

There used to be a time when I thought that our nation’s entertainers could be looked upon to maintain the core values that we all hold dear; a time when wealthy middle-aged actors were the bastion of noble and ethical conduct, where people couldn’t just accuse anyone they wanted of heinous acts without first getting their facts straight. Well that time is no more. That’s why I was disgusted to hear that Danny Glover was accused of sexually harassing multiple women.

What type of a world are we living in where not even the lavishly rich and famous can be expected to live a life of moral virtue? What type of a world are we living in where an offhand remark or vague anonymous allegations don’t put a man at risk of losing his career? Not one that I want to live in, I’ll tell you that.

Danny Glover is a disgrace to the otherwise upright profession of show business, and he needs to face the consequences of his actions.

I could tell he was a philanderer from the first time I saw him as Mr. Mertle in The Sandlot. He was an even bigger creep when he played hitman Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction. Sometimes you can just tell the man by the characters he has played on screen, and Danny Glover has played the worst of them. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has committed tax fraud and murder as well. In fact, I’m going to tweet that he’s a murderer right now.

I’ve been anonymously accusing Danny Glover of sexual harassment for years, and what has our toxically masculine society done about it? Nothing. Until now, no one believed the truth that Danny Glover, the same Danny Glover who played Morpheus in The Matrix, once told me I looked nice in my new khakis. The whole situation is even worse on social media, where people spout their ignorant opinions without knowing the true story. All of his apologists who say “Danny Glover has not been accused of anything” deserve to burn.

You, Mr. Glover, are getting too old for this.
