Gary Oldman Called out for Alleged Abusive Past During Golden Globes Protest

As part of his support for the "Time's Up" movement, Darkest Hour star Gary Oldman arrived at the Golden Globes red carpet in all black.

But some Twitter users weren't ready to let Oldman off the hook.

In 2001, Oldman's then-wife Donya Fiorentino filed papers with Los Angeles Superior Court that Oldman had assaulted her with a telephone.

β€œAs I picked up the phone to call the police, Gary put his hand on my neck and squeezed. I backed away, with the phone receiver in my hand," Fiorentino said in an interview with New York Daily News. "I tried to dial 911. Gary grabbed the phone receiver from my hand, and hit me in the face with the telephone receiver three or four times. Both of the children were crying.”

Oldman called the allegations "replete with lies, innuendos and half-truths."

Despite claiming innocence, Twitter users were not happy he was getting a full interview on the E! Network.

Oldman is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for his Winston Churchill role in Darkest Hour.
