Devin Faraci

Things keep getting worse Devin Faraci. I told you about his pathetic tale the other day. In short, he decided to go virtue signally about the Donald Trump pussy grab audio and things didn’t end well for him. A former female associate came forward to tell a sordid tale about his past behavior. Apparently, he reached down her pants and violated her with his digits, then wen around asking his friends to take a whiff of said digits. People have been charged with outright rape for much less, and Faraci himself pretty much admitted to these charges.

(Called it.)

He claimed not to remember, but said it must be true if the accuser was saying this. He would have done much better by keeping his mouth shut, as he’s now opened up to criminal and/or civil charges. But, as longtime readers of this site know, he’s a complete idiot. Now, that same idiocy has cost the man his job, at least temporarily.

From Variety:

Movie blogger Devin Faraci has stepped down as editor-in-chief of the influential blog, Birth.Movies.Death, after being accused of sexual assault.

In a message to friends and readers, Faraci wrote, “This weekend allegations were made about my past behavior. Because I take these types of claims seriously I feel my only honorable course of action is to step down from my position as Editor-in-Chief of Birth.Movies.Death. I will use the coming weeks and months to work on becoming a better person who is, I hope, worthy of the trust and loyalty of my friends and readers.”

The accusations surfaced on Twitter after Faraci shared his views on video tapes of Donald Trump bragging to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush about groping women. The movie blogger tweeted that he was “terrified” of the Republican presidential nominee and labeled his running mate, Mike Pence, an “ideological monster.” Faraci’s condemnation was widely retweeted, but one woman took issue with his statements, tweeting under the handle @spacecrone, “quick question: do you remember grabbing me by the p—y and bragging to our friends about it, telling them to smell your fingers?”

Other women offered their own stories of Faraci’s inappropriate behavior. He did not deny @spacecrone‘s accusations, tweeting, “I can only believe you and beg forgiveness for having been so vile.”

Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas owns Birth.Movies.Death, which offers up casting stories, reviews, and trailers for cinephiles. The company declined to comment. In an exchange with Variety, @spacecrone said that Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League spoke with her about her allegations and was “empathetic.”

“I am really happy that it sounds like Devin is interested in getting help about this, and I’m open to any accountability processing that might be part of his treatment,” she wrote. “I really hope this can be a moment of self-interrogation for all of us, myself included, about the ways we might use positions of power to silence people, and the ways we all turn away from things that might seem a little too complicated to deal with.”

I’m not perfect myself, far from it, in fact. But one thing I’ve always tried not to do was get moralistic with my writing. One of the things that has always bothered me the most about SJWs is the way they want to impose their supposed morality on everyone else when they’re usually the most vile motherfuckers around. This is just the latest bit of evidence, but I guarantee you there will be much more to come. There always is.
