Jane Doe Victim of 'The Predator' Sex Offender Speaks Out

The Predator’s key problem is that it lacks the courage to make the titular alien-hunter the leading character

I made an error in judgement that's irresponsible - I'm not just a kid who can say, you know, we're making movies in college, put your buddy in the movie. I was the captain of that ship, it's my job to make sure that those things don't happen, you see.

The director expressed his remorse over the decision to cast Striegel, and took full responsibility for the fallout. It's my fault. I made a decision, which was a very bad - look, it's not about the fact that I was as shocked to discover what's going on at reading these terrible things in the paper.

Director Shane Black placed the blame on himself, saying he feels responsible for the sex offender being in the movie in the first place. Wouldn't facing the issue head on, in a straightforward and contrite manner, have had a better outcome for all involved?

"The people who collude to keep people like this in positions of power, that's the real problem", Munn continued.

Boyd Holbrook said in an Instagram post Tuesday that he was "proud of Olivia for the way that she handled a hard and alarming situation, and I am grateful that Fox took the information seriously and took action swiftly". "I felt that I owed her that call, that apology and I'm very sorry for any pain that she's felt, but I reached out privately". "In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have", Carnes wrote in her statement.

It's been wild to follow this scandal, as it has quickly become an apt metaphor for the #MeToo Movement: high profile men and major studios trying to silence and punish a woman for speaking the truth. I hope I learn from this, because it really bothers me that this movie, which could have been this handsome people and this attractive night with only this, has been overshadowed in some ways by a stupid decision that I made. "My name is Paige Carnes, former Jane Doe", the now-24-year-old said.

In an interview that aired Tuesday on "Ellen", Munn told Ellen DeGeneres that she had been "chastised" by people at the studio for sharing the information about Striegel's past with her co-stars.

"My objective in making this statement is to reclaim my identity".

In her statement, Carnes spoke candidly about why she made a decision to come forward, saying that even though "sexual abuse makes people uncomfortable. The positive feedback from social media towards Olivia Munn is uplifting and feels incredibly supportive for me personally". It should make you uncomfortable.

"This discomfort is nothing compared to the psychological and physical suffering of those who have dealt with it", she added. The consequences of this abuse are profound and permanent for some. You lose trust in everyone around you, and mainly yourself. The Washington Post generally does not identify victims of sexual crimes, but Carnes said, in a statement provided to the L.A. Times, that she is speaking out to "reclaim" her identity.

Support can come in many forms. I am extremely fortunate to have a Father and Mother that love me unconditionally. "Without the support from online, I would have just still been one voice".
