The Cos? A newly-minted criminal conviction is a pretty compelling reason. Polanski, on the other hand..?
As soon as that gavel slammed down on Cosby’s verdict, his days at ‘The Academy’ were numbered.
A criminal conviction for the drugging and molesting of defenseless women is not easily ignored.
Not when your name is Bill Cosby, anyway.
Even the great and powerful Harvey Weinstein got an uncerimonious boot.
But if your name is Roman Polanski, well, then you can drug and be convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl with impunity.
You can even have women defend him by saying that drugging and molesting a thirteen-year-old girl wasn’t ‘rape-rape‘. (Even though that same woman would gladly have called down fire and brimstone to rain on the head of a would-be Senator who once wanted to date a seventeen-year-old.)
Until just now, Roman Polanski was hailed as a suffering exile. A misunderstood genius.
Some of the loudest #MeToo virtue signalers were recent converts. Not that long ago, they stood in praise of their hero, Polanski.
When he was given the Best Director award for the Pianist the entire room exploded in applause. Streep was one of the first to stand. She also once lamented his being in jail.
There was even a petition signed more than 100 Hollywood personalities with a ‘free Polanski’ objective.
Now that the #MeToo environment has pressured Hollywood to take the abuse of women more seriously, they didn’t dare ignore Cosby.
Why did they pick NOW to turn on Polanski when they didn’t even throw him overboard when Weinstein got turfed?
Here are two people couldn’t possibly disagree more on almost every topic under the sun. But somehow, they both reached the same conclusion about what REALLY drives this decision.
Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski has been expelled from the Oscars membership. They had to throw in Roman so it won’t look racist AF. #smh

Oh, yes, Ladies, you can wear this shirt. Get yours here.
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect t-shirts to ever hit the market. It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners!
Keep Calm and Don’t Be a Pussy!
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
