Another day, another celebrity accused of being a sexual predator. Well, a kind of celebrity. If this was six years ago, the name Ed Westwick would be way more relevant, but as it is 2017, I’ll just let you all know that the guy who played Chuck Bass on my Grandma’s favorite teen drama, Gossip Girlfriends (aka Gossip Girl) has been accused of rape.
Actress Kristina Cohen has accused Westwick of raping her in his LA apartment several years ago, so if you had Ed’s name on your “Celebrity’s Who Will Soon Be Accused of Sexual Harassment/Assault” Bingo card, you’re in luck!
Cohen went on Facebook recently to give a detail account of how a few years ago the producer she was dating brought her to Ed’s house and Ed tried to make a weird orgy happen and she was like “Nah” and went to the spare room to nap. Then shit got weird. Cohen writes:
So I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep, I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to fuck me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.
It was a nightmare, and the days following weren’t any better.
The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant. Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career. Saying there’s no way I can go around saying Ed “raped” me and that I don’t want to be “that girl.”
Ed of course denies the rape ever happened and actually said he’s never even met Cohen, but she’s filed an official police report and the whole thing is currently under investigation so maybe we’ll know more soon.
On the plus side, ever since this Harvey Weinstein thing happened no douche bag in Hollywood can get away with being a sexual predator anymore which is awesome, on the down side, EVERYONE IS A SEXUAL PREDATOR AND EVERY SHOW/MOVIE/SONG YOU EVER LIKED WILL SOON BE RUINED!!! Like come the fuck on?! It is NOT difficult to not rape and harass women/men! I know guys who legitimately don’t harass or assault anyone every single day!
I feel personally victimized by these accusations because back in 2009, my BFF Melissa and I went to New York for the first time in hopes of meeting Ed Westwick and Robert Pattinson and having week long sexy New York affairs with them. Now even the memory of that fantasy is tarnished thanks to Ed Westwick’s potentially pervy predator ways. I am extremely unimpressed.
