what was the point of it?
it completely trivialises what he has done and continued to do after she wrote it. it suggests that a short reference to him in a tv show is an appropriate way to hold him to account. and if she wasn’t trying to hold him to account or to bring an end to his behaviour then what was the point of it?
clearly he knew his behaviour was an open secret. others highlighting his behaviour in any context that wasn’t condemnatory only added to the sense that he could carry on with impunity.
if everyone already knows about it and is doing nothing then why the fuck would one of his victims be willing to go on the record with concrete accusations?
