Yeah, I really liked him but when this news hit, it crushed me. It took a long time to get the real story and then I was mostly meh about it. It's still wierd to me what he did, but he was not offending anyone by his actions there.I also want to vent for a minute on media portrayals and society’s collective valuations of people through publication. As a kid it was big news passed around as a joke that he was masturbating at a movie theater. It wasn’t until well into adulthood (and even really the past few years, I believe) that I got a more complete context. He was specifically at an adult movie theater (maybe “arcade” is the technical term) and this was not your local Cinemark. Not that I’m pro masturbating in public venues, but this is a place where people would congregate and watch things to do just that. The police were busy utilizing tax dollars attending these porn showings so that they could try to catch people masturbating. If you have a problem with what happened, maybe don’t have a place where adults can go watch movies for that express purpose, rather than put these out there and then have the cops hang out watching them and hoping to catch someone. Still shouldn’t be masturbating in a venue like that but the perception of what happened vs. the reality of what happened is an important distinction.
