Polanski’s sister-in-law, Mathilde Seigner, admits she is delighted the star will soon be free, telling French newspaper Le Parisien, “I am very happy and relieved. We’re going to drink a nice glass of champagne and toast together.” [source]
Yeah, and then he’ll throw in some forced sodomy, ’cause that’s just how he rolls. Seriously, you’re talking to the national media and you bring up champagne?
What’s worse: that these people are simply unaware of the impression they are giving the rest of the world, or that they are, in fact, very much aware, and couldn’t give a damn? And then they have the nerve to complain about how their family has been negatively affected by this situation? Because, clearly, the utter sense of entitlement and “it’s OK to get away with rape for as long as you’re a celebrated genius” means that society needs to roll over and drool for your benefit?
He better still get extradited. Otherwise, I might have to quit humanity.
There isn’t anything else I’d like to say about this, so I’ll let appropriate gif be appropriate:

Bit of both? – they are unaware of the impression they give, AND they don’t give a fuck.
Just seeing his face literally makes me want to scream. You know what is absolutely the craziest thing ever, ever, ever? Both my cousin and myself were victims of sexual abuse by our grandmother’s husband (not my grandfather) when we were very, very young (I don’t even remember it, but it was provable) and my mother STILL suggested that this now-woman, then-13-year-old, was doing this for money. You can bet we had a little conversation about that, and she quickly changed her tune. But in our society, if even someone with DIRECT personal experience is willing to overlook this? I hope some kind of higher power can save us.
People compartmentalize these things. It’s called taking the easy way out, I guess. Ugh.
