Choose Films Free From Sexual Predators With This Handy Website
Ain't nobody got time for that.
We're not exaggerating when we say that Christmas isn't quite Christmas without Home Alone on repeat – or Home Alone 2, 3, 4 and 5. However, this year you may find that magical experience to be completely ruined when during Home Alone 2, Donald Trump suddenly turns up. No joke.
You may have once been blissfully unaware of his cameo – when little Kevin McCallister is in the Plaza Hotel, owned by Trump at the time of production – but since you've spent the whole of 2017 trying to get his unsightly smirking orange face out of your head, you won't miss him this time. Apart from the fact that this egomaniac, who has been accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen women, is actually the U.S. president, his appearance in the movie leaves a nasty black mark – worse than if your dad was to accidentally tape over it with a cheesy '70s porno. And this is just one of the 18 movies and shows in which he made incredible awkward appearances throughout the '90s.
Thankfully, there's now a website dedicated to finding movies that include sexual predators so that you can give them a wide berth. The cleverly named Rotten Apples is a database that scours films and tells you if anyone attached to the project has been accused of sexual misconduct.
Simply type in a film you want to watch and the results will either come up as “fresh,” stating “This movie has no known affiliation to anyone with allegations of sexual misconduct against them” or “rotten,” naming and shaming the alleged harasser. Amazing news – time to vet that festive playlist.
My new fav hobby: entering tv shows and films into Rotten Apples and feeling smug about my excellent viewing choices— Hannah Louise 💜✨ (@HannahGetsHench) 15. Dezember 2017
Head to Rotten Apples here.
On the subject of Trump, you can still cop this F*ck Trump lipstick to help a civil rights organization targeted by him and his administration.
