Fraser groped at Oscars
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brendan Fraser, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor Sunday night for his performance as an obese recluse in “The Whale,” was allegedly crotch-groped at a party after the ceremony.
“I was improperly touched,” Fraser told the AP Monday. “It was violating.”
Fraser, in the interview, said he was bending over to drink from a water fountain at the Vanity Fair after-show party at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills when he felt what seemed to be male fingers slip into his trousers from behind and manhandle his taint.
“I thought I was in a safe space,” the “Encino Man” and “Son-in-Law” co-star said. “My humanity has been taken.”
Fraser said he did not get a good look at his assailant, but said witnesses in the vicinity immediately fingered several possible suspects.
An LAPD source, who spoke on condition of anonymity to protect an ongoing investigation, confirmed to the AP that Colin Farrell, Morgan Freeman and EGOT winner Lydia Tar are all considered persons of interest in the assault.

It's the taint that keeps on giving.

I'd rather grope his sons.

R4 The son on the right is mildly attractive. The son on the left needs looks like Jen Psaki.
However, they're both gracious and kind and respectful. Take note, Hugh Grant.

When asked for comment, Fraiser told reporters, “I didn’t just cry, I wailed. For twenty minutes, in a dark parking structure, I mourned my dignity”.

I feel a bit uncomfortable with the way he acts about it but it isn't my place to decide how upset he should be or how it should have affected his life. There might be more to the story or more context that he isn't sharing that would make more sense of his behavior.

The thing I'm most appalled about is his drinking from a public water fountain. I've got the whim-whams just thinking about it. Good god, Brendan, get some lackey to go get you a proper, safe drink.

If this happened 20-30 years ago, I would have grabbed for his taint myself.

Just look at what happens when I forget to include a winking emoji? 😉

Unconfirmed reports that the Taint Toucher was none other than fellow Oscar darling Jamie Lee Curtis, wearing her hot dog finger gloves from Everything Everywhere All at Once.

It was George Santos claiming to be JLC, R15.

The grift that never ends. I was actually abused as a child and seeing a grown man whining about being groped at the age of 30 and then now at 50 or whatever is his age is insulting.

was he drunk and screaming slurs at the time like the years to follow said event
which the allegation only came out when he tried making a comeback and cover the various lawsuits of physical assault and harassment?

Funny how the other girl is busy with her phone and didn't notice the action beside her, nor Austin bonner, R29

OP it’s not funny to make fun of sexual assault. No one has the right to be molested in that area.
