In a clever and thoughtful move, four creatives have launched a website called “Rotten Apples,” which helps viewers keep track of Hollywood’s sexual predators. Simply type the name of a film into the search bar and you’ll be told if there are any rotten apples associated with the movie (for example, “The Usual Suspects” is rotten because it stars Kevin Spacey and was directed by Bryan Singer). If your movie pick is free from people accused of harassment or assault, you get a “Fresh Apples” result. The team—who isn’t planning on making any profit from the site—says that the aim is to help people “make ethical media consumption decisions” and also to ensure that these allegations don’t become normalized.
