Are big corporations using these unsubstantiated allegations as an easy way to dump expensive star contracts? https://t.co/cKGDVDEfXf— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 29, 2017
The discussion began with a link to an article about Lauer, who was fired this morning after a report was filed about his "inappropriate sexual behavior." However, after engaging with followers, Woods quickly back-pedaled — explaining that he wasn't necessarily talking about Lauer's case.
It seems like a slick way to clean house of expensive contracts or execute long simmering personal vendettas. Are these unprovable allegations a magic bullet for the bean counters at these companies?— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 29, 2017
I’m asking this as a general concept by the way. I am not referring to the Matt Lauer situation, about which I have no knowledge whatsoever. I’m not interested in who is telling the “truth.” I am interested in the seemingly reckless power inherent in unsubstantiated charges.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 29, 2017
Earlier this year, Woods himself faced some pretty ugly accusations of sexual misconduct care of actress Amber Tamblyn. Tamblyn tweeted a story about Woods trying to "pick her up" when she was only sixteen, and Elizabeth Perkins called Woods out by name during the #MeToo campaign.
James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. "I'm 16" I said. "Even better" he said.— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) September 11, 2017
Woods is an infamous controversial figure on Twitter, even beyond the issue of sexual misconduct.
NBC hasn't commented on Woods' accusations.
