At the age of just 13-years-old, Samantha Geimer was touched and anally raped by a monster. Smeared as a money craving con-artist, a spoiler in the political cinematic sphere, a scared teen seductress-gone-wild and a rape victim who wasn’t really raped, it was immoral Hollywood who jumped to the convicted perpetrator’s aid instead.

The latest smear-arrow came in the form of a resurfaced audio clip of controversial film director Quentin Tarantino who defended the convicted child rapist in a 2003 interview on The Howard Stern Show:

Embroiled in the #MeToo controversy — confessing he knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s abusive behaviour and facing criticism for a new interview “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman gave with The New York Times, where in which she describes the director pressuring the actress to drive a 30 miles per hour car stunt resulting in a collision — the new tape has certainly not aged well.

Stern asked Tarantino about comments he made to reporters about Polanski where he said he “didn’t consider him to be a rapist.” Tarantino, pressed on the case details of the man supplying his victim with alcohol and drugs, said:

“He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape… he had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word ‘rape’, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down — it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world.

You can’t throw the word rape around. It’s like throwing the word ‘racist’ around. It doesn’t apply to everything people use it for. She wanted to have it and dated the guy. Look, she was down with this. She’s talked about it.”
