The LAPD is so completely overwhelmed with the recent reports of sexual misconduct by powerful players in Hollywood that it has established a task force solely devoted to investigating the open cases. Currently, the task force is processing 28 open cases involving allegations of sexual assault. An additional 37 cases have been assigned to other jurisdictions for investigation and possible prosecution. The most notorious of the accused is mega producer Harvey Weinstein, with over 60 women coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.
Harvey Weinstein. Rose McGowan was one of the first women to speak out against Harvey Weinstein, and implicate him by name. Since then, over 60 women have come forward with allegations against Weinstein. The allegations range from sexual harassment to penetrative rape. Weinstein is reportedly being investigated in both Los Angeles and New York. According to a statement from his attorney, Weinstein denies any non-consensual sexual activity.
Terry Richardson. Terry Richardson is an extremely well known, and by all accounts, successful photographer. Or at least he was. His work has been banned from all Conde Nast publications. Richardson has been accused of sexual misconduct and exploitation by several models who have worked with him. The allegations against Richardson have been circulating for years.
Brett Ratner. Six women have accused filmmaker Brett Ratner of either sexual harassment or misconduct. His attorney "categorically denies" each of the accusations against Ratner. Several Hollywood power players, including Gal Gadot, have refused to work on any future projects with Ratner.
