Alex Datig: Harvey Weinstein Is Only The Symptom Of A Much Greater Problem

By Alex Datig, October 14, 2017

The long dark shadow of Hollywood is cast by predators determined to rip out the hearts of the young and innocent and crush their dreams. I know, I was one of them. When I was 19 years old, I joined the Screen Actors Guild because I got a speaking role in a movie. From thereon, I spent tireless hours in the gym, working on my craft, designing fashion and aspiring to become a model and a fashion designer. Competition was tough but I was determined I was a contender. I was wrong. Not because I didn't have what it took to make it in print, but because I had no way to prepare for the predators and abusers that would see me as something that could be exploited in more way than I ever could have dreamed in my worst nightmares. 

For nine months, I found myself being sold into sexual slavery, Hollywood style. It nearly killed me. To save my own life, I went against Hollywood and all the shady operators who would rather see me dead than expose them. But expose them I did and to jail they went. No one should have to go through what I did. It took me years to get parts of my life back. Some parts are lost forever. - Harvey Weinstein is not the only predator who operates the way he does. He is only the symptom of a much bigger problem.
