Adam Scott is Irish too? Poor guy. He's really had it.

If true - that’s disgusting.

"I've lost faith in karma" sounds really naive. Every adult should know there's no true, consistent karma. If it happens, it's just coincidence.

That said, sounds like Mescal was a terror to this person.

Hopefully some day somebody will call him on in a way that forces him to account. The stories sound believable and are very sad. What a little shit he is.

I wonder if his team feels like he needs to respond with some "I am truly sorry ... I've changed" statement.

He sounds like he was a little shit, but people can change, particularly young people.

That having been said, I have never heard of, much less seen, Normal people. Paul Mescal is only a name I recognize because he’s been mentioned here for being in the new Gladiator. Maybe he’s a big name in a small country like Ireland, but he’s not even approaching a household name in America.

The studios will try to make him a household name R11. Hollywood has been in need of a new male face for some time and he has two.

I think we should have some sympathy for Mescal. It was a much more homophobic time when he was in high school back in the nineties.

(Born in 1996? I'd sooner believe he was Class of 1996)

by Anonymousreply 22January 26, 2023 9:23 PM

Was he a homophobic bully in school or not? It's not entirely clear.

This is from an Ireland reddit thread:

[quote] The Mescal story has been debunked, OP refused to acknowledge it and called me a crazy Mescal fan🙄 This whole controversy is based on one isolated account made by an anonymous throwaway account on Reddit two years ago and the account got basic facts like what Mescal’s parents did for a living and what sport he played, wrong.

[quote] I was in his class. I wasn't friends with him or anything, he was definitely one of the popular lads and I mean come on like, he played Minor for Kildare, could sing/act and was fairly well-built and I.... wasn't. But that didn't stop him from being a gentleman. He's the type who could have used his social standing to be a dick but did the exact opposite of that and would always give you (by that I mean, me) the time of day and wouldn't mind having a conversation with someone way down the pecking order (which is a big thing as a teenager). This is utter garbage which is typical for twitter.

[quote] I was in his year too .. totally agree. I would never say he would do those things and although I'm a girl and never saw the "locker room" antics I never heard anything bad about him. There was homophobia in our school for sure but never heard it coming from him.

[quote] Not that I discount your experience but perhaps another person’s interactions with him weren’t as positive as yours? In any event, some hard evidence or witnesses or something would have to come forward before I actually started believing it to be the case.

R23 He was nice to a girl in school, so he couldn’t possibly have picked on a gay kid? Is that the ridiculous logic we’re supposed to follow?

This has the stench of Austin Butler all over it.

[quote] He was nice to a girl in school, so he couldn’t possibly have picked on a gay kid?

He was also nice to a guy in high school who was socially below him. He appears to have been a very popular kid participating in sports and theater. So was he wonderful to everyone in his class, but he had a thing for humiliating the gay kids at school? That's not impossible at all, but is the evidence one anonymous post, and then we hang him?

Maybe more info will be forthcoming. We live in an time when everyone tells everything, especially about the famous. Paul Mescal is getting increasingly high-profile with an Oscar nomination, accolades for stage performances, and winning highly coveted movie roles. Some reputable and many unreputable online magazines would be more than ready to source a real story about this, so maybe we'll just wait and see what happens.

Stephen Boyd, starring as Frankie Fane in the movie "The Oscar," would know what to do.

I was thinking the same thing, R30. Do rational people think this way, or is it limited to people who either have an egocentric bias or lack critical thinking skills? I appreciate that one of the other commenters said this:

[quote]Not that I discount your experience but perhaps another person’s interactions with him weren’t as positive as yours?

Reddit post aside, plenty of people are angelic in public and devilish in private. I can understand not wanting to believe something negative about friends and family but dismissing someone else's [reported] experience because you didn't witness it is nonsensical.

by Anonymousreply 33January 26, 2023 11:18 PM

It wasn't debunked because he was nice to other kids in school - it was debunked because on that thread the OP was asked to provide a few basic details about the time and location and each time was either incorrect or vague, until he got angry and flounced.

It was pretty obviously an EST. Not saying he's a saint or incapable of doing such a thing as I don't know the man, but this particular story didn't pass even basic muster.

by Anonymousreply 34January 26, 2023 11:23 PM

R32 I was responding to the post claiming Mescal was nice to someone who had never heard him make homophobic comments about anyone. Sure. In my experience that’s easy to say when the comments and negativity are not directed towards YOU. I remember being younger and going to a club with friends, and by the time we left, we’d had a horrible experience. All except one of us. Let’s just say he looked much different from the rest of us. He had the greatest night ever and couldn’t understand why we were unhappy. It was as if we had gone to two different places. Clearly the negativity directed towards us was not directed towards him and his experience skewed his perspective with respect to ours.

Why wouldn't a straight teenage boy be nice to a teenage girl? And why would he exhibit homophobic bullying in front of her?

He needs to address if if he even wants one vote. Austin Butler is really coming for him it seems.

He’s not winning for a little movie like this. Plus he’s still in the early stages of his career. The nomination is the win for him.

He's not going to win the Oscar, but he'll get some votes, say 5% to 10% of the total. If we could dislodge those votes with this potential Reddit scandal and free the votes up for another more worthy nominee, then the ex-Mescal votes could conceivably push the more worthy nominee into a win. Just thinking out loud.

by Anonymousreply 56January 27, 2023 12:07 PM

I'm sure Mescal laughs about it now, since most asshole bullies don't ever truly feel guilt. He's successful and rich, and probably thinks even more highly of himself than he did back then.

Just guessing, of course

by Anonymousreply 57January 27, 2023 12:10 PM

R46, if the rumors were from 2 years ago, tht might mean there's credence to the rumors, since these accusations weren't timed around his Oscar nomination but have been around that long.

He’s a little bit potato-faced, but fairly handsome overall. I’d let him say bad things to me while I did bad things to him.

I had a different experience with Paul when I, too, was in HS with him.

Paul was one of the kindest yet adventurous lads in school. Very popular and a good mix of sporting and artistic. He was so cute, like he still is today. Our mothers were casual friends and I had played with Paul when we were boys but we grew into different people. I was slight and shy and studious and Paul was the definition of extrovert. He was protective of me.

I had a terrific crush on one of Paul's mates and Paul knew it. That guy was a jerk to me and made me cry. Paul told him off and walked me home and I couldn't stop crying. Paul asked me what was wrong and I told him I really really liked his friend but in a sexual way. That I wanted to kiss him and see his penis. We were walking by the empty pitch at Meyrooth University and I told him I could never make it with a jock like him and his friend. Paul drew me closer with his hug, and said "Don't cry. I'm not into lads but you can experiment with me. I'd be happy to help. Meet me on the pitch tonight after dark, near midnight. I'll be in full, smelly kit, and I'm going to train you and then when we're good and sweaty, you can have me in that thicket over there."

My tears were dry and there was a heat expanding in my groin area and a funny feeling in my stomach and my arse. I was over the moon with excitement, but mystified how to prepare for the RDV....

Don't these gay guys know how to deal with bullies? You find out their patterns& day to day activities, set a plan. When I was in Foster care nightmare, I was picked on cause I was the new kid in Central Pa.Very thin, sickly looking but SMART. The HS football was on the verge of state chanps in the 1970'S. Both the quarterback& safety slipped down the marble steps broke bones, Lost the game, no state champs that year. I don't know what happened, but the bullying stopped. I was glad too! A guardian Angel was looking out for me.

Those are fan pages. He deleted his actual Instagram account in 2021.

[quote] It's unclear when exactly Mescal called quits on his social media presence but we do know that his Instagram account seemed to disappear in the spring of last year (2021). He had more than one million followers on the photo and video-sharing platform at the time.
