Seven West Media CEO Scandal

Tim Worner, CEO, Seven West Media stands accused of drug use and a sexual relationship with an Executive Assistant much young than him.  When David Jones was faced with a scandal about their CEO, Mark McInnes, and an affair with a more junior worker they stood him down whilst there was an investigation.

Last Tango in Paris Rape Scene

I find it extraordinary that a well known Director, Bernardo Bertolucci, thinks he can own up to engineering a rape on camera of a 19 year old actor and feel confident that there will be no action taken.  There must be legislation that covers inciting someone to commit a rape.  His, and Marlon Brando's, behaviour was disgusting.  It showed no regard for the effect it might have on a young professional just starting her career. It shows absolutely no regard for societal standards dressed up in the excuse of authenticity of reactions and feelings.
