Famed Director Ridley Scott Attacked by Asia Argento for Defending Luc Besson on Rape Charge: “Wake the f up, be on the right side of history”


Actress and director Asia Argento (pron. ah-zee-ah) is attacking Ridley Scott for defending Luc Besson.

Scott, she says, fired Kevin Spacey from “All the Money in the World” when allegations were leveled at him.

Now Scott is defending Luc Besson. Scott said in a Tweet that Besson did not rape his long time mistress Sand van Roy. Argento is furious. She was in a four year relationship with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein that she says began with a rape.

Argento says to Scott: “Where is the coherence? You are old, but you still got time to wake the fuck up”

It’s a crazy time.
