As we continue to play the painfully frustrating game of “How Many Men in Hollywood Suck?” we may be adding George Clooney to the list. Vanessa Marquez, who played nurse Wendy Goldman during the first three seasons of ER, claims that Clooney helped blacklist her for speaking up about harassment on the set of the show.

Results like these are the reasons why women and men do not often make accusations or report things to human resources. Victims are seen as disruptive and making a fuss, so instead of dealing with a problem, victims get punished. George Clooney has not yet responded to the allegations the way Ben Affleck did after he was called out on Twitter; Clooney has said he knew nothing about Weinstein’s actions—despite the fact that his best friend for several years, Brad Pitt, had two partners, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, who were victims of Weinstein.
