Darius McCrary Said That A Hollywood Exec ‘Touched Him Inappropriately’ When He Was Young, But Won’t Say Who Because He’s Not ‘Thirsty’
It seems that nearly everyday, women and men are coming forward with allegations of sexual abuse and harassment ever since news of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment and assault allegations broke. A recent accusation of rape naming Charlie Sheen as the late Corey Haim’s attacker has many people wondering if the Hollywood sex scandal could possibly get any worse.
Apparently, Darius McCrary doesn’t believe that his friend is guilty and has a problem with those who use stories like these to get media attention. When TMZ caught up with McCrary and asked him about the allegations against Sheen, he confidently defended him.
“All I can say is Charlie is one of the most magnificent and kind people that God ever created,” he said. “And I can’t see Charlie Sheen doing anything inappropriate.”
McCrary went on to offer his own theory of why he thinks that former actor Dominick Brascia would go public on Haim’s behalf now.
“People who are thirsty are always looking for a good drink and from what I know, Charlie Sheen will quench your thirst. Drink that,” he continued.
McCrary went on to say that Sheen isn’t capable of raping anybody and that people like Brascia are just looking to use him for fame. And he could be right. Sheen has categorically denied taking advantage of Haim and his mother believes him. She has named another person as her son’s molester. But McCrary might know a child predator when he sees one. He told TMZ that he was a victim early in his career.
“I will say this though, I was inappropriately touched by a Hollywood executive, and I’m not going to tell on nobody,” McCrary said.
The TMZ reporter tried to get more details about McCrary’s alleged attack by asking if the molestation happened while he was working on the sitcom Family Matters. The former child actor said that he was keeping the details quiet because he’s not “thirsty” for attention.
“This happened when I was a young man,” McCrary continued. “I’m not going to say, but that’s what it is. See, I’m not thirsty, so I ain’t gotta tell my business because I’m not thirsty.”
While his “thirsty” comments have not been well-received, McCrary certainly has the right to decide if he wants to name names or remain silent. The perception is that he was making a blanket statement about all of the people who have come out publicly against their abusers. Some believe that he should, too. But that is an individual choice as the fallout from speaking out may not be worth the cost. To each his own.
