Winter has just begun but we've had a huge, intimidating snowball rolling across the world since the beginning of October. Yes, we're talking about the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein that were followed by an onslaught of women coming forward about their experiences with other male celebs, including Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Danny Masterson and the rest 40 somewhat men.
After all that's been said and done, people started raising the question – what do we do with the art created by these sexual predators? The movies, shows and roles they've played, many of which have been given awards and praised for years.
Judging by several online polls, majority believes we should respect the art and separate it from the abusers. However, there are those who think we should boycott them and their creations, and for this group of people, the new genius website – Rotten Appl.es – will come in handy.
According to its description, Rotten Appl.es is a "searchable database that lets you know whether or not a film or television show is tied to a person who has been accused of sexual misconduct." Basically, you type in a movie title and the website tells you if there are any "rotten apples" associated with that production.
"The goal of this site is to further drive awareness of just how pervasive sexual misconduct in film and television is and to help make ethical media consumption easier."
The creators outline they're by no means trying to condemn the projects listed on their site, just bring awareness to people who might be struggling with an ethical dilemma: "This database is not perfect, nor are the results meant to be taken as fact. Each link is sourced from an existing article and is not a reflection of our own opinions."
Along with all the "rotten apples," you'll also find "fresh" ones, meaning the film has no known affiliation to anyone with allegations of sexual misconduct.
Check it out for yourself here and be sure to let the creators know if you spot any errors or missing titles.
