And another one falls to #metoo.

Guilty until proven innocent.

Maybe he is simply a victim of earlier times and different countries with different customs. They said he was trying to kiss them--not too popular in the USA. Although one said he kept asking her if she really had to go home...maybe implying that she would stay with him? I don't know. It's all taken out of context so far.

But Placido is a good man and I find these things hard to believe. If they happened so long ago then why don't these women keep quiet? What do they have to gain by coming forward now? To destroy his marriage and reputation? Who is putting them up to it and how do they suddenly get these ideas?

Placido Domingo, eh? If they've come for him, they must be hot on the heels of Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson.

They canceled him in Philadelphia and Dallas too. In Europe they are still fine with him - he got a long standing ovation in Salzburg.

The worst allegation I heard was that he grabbed a woman's breast in the dressing room while they were getting makeup done. But the makeup artist doesn't remember it happening. sounds BOGUS.

She said that after he grabbed her breast, she cried out in pain and asked the makeup person, “Did you see that?” Reached by the AP, the makeup artist said he did not recall the incident and did not want to comment further on the record.

Sadly, that is the case with some #MeToo stories. Heck, I would be not be surprised if even after the accused is proven to be innocent, some nut-job feminist will still think the accused is guilty.

I too like to believe victims and survivors. Their are multiple allegations of sexual misconduct that goes back 40 years. Multiple allegations do seem troubling and a cause for concern

We live in a society where people are innocent before proven guilty. What may not be seen as sexual harassment back in the 70, 80s and 90s maybe viewed as sexual harassment now due to change of sexual norms and sex culture. Innocent before proven guilty is being challenged by trust and believe which put Bill Cosby in prison based on women's testimonies with no proof of evidence and goes with statue of limitations. Why didn't women who are groped by this opera singer go to the police and report sexual misconduct?

In the white Anglo-Saxon world. We are going thorough this period of social justice, feminism, cancel and call out culture. Anyone caught doing something racist or sexist in the past. Your life is pretty much over if someome brings it up sexist, racist or homophobic things of the past committed by some one. Than you have social media which generates a court of public opinion which can be just as worse as a real court.

The tenor may have to look elsewhere for work which he will get Thanks to the fact that other nations that don't speak English are not going through this racsim sexism stuff which are controlled by feminist and social justice activists.
