In “well, that was quick” news, Ansel Elgort is claiming that he is sowwy for how he has behaved in the past, but that he is absolutely NO predatory abuser (tell that to my eardrums when I had to, yet again, listen to that song of yours).
For those who may have lost track (there were a lot of disgusting pigs accused last week), Ansel was accused by an Instagram user of sexual assault when she was 17 and he was 20. Others also accused Ansel of trying to meet up with them when they were underage. Well, Ansel managed to tear himself away from his bathroom vanity mirror to spit out the usual defense (life is a journey, growth, etc…) BUT, while categorically denying that he’s an abuser, he goes one step further by claiming, with help from his PR team no doubt, that he and his accuser had a perfectly LEGAL and CONSENSUAL relationship, all but suggesting that she’s now speaking out after he ghosted her. And for that, he’s deeply ashamed.
Ansel ran to the trusty ol’ Notes app and managed to be as contrite and solemn as roughly 250 characters would allow and managed to say everything and nothing at the same time:
But yet, the smarmy butternut squash didn’t mention the other gross allegations against him. And is basically saying that she’s a crazy ex-girlfriend who only accused him of assault because he ignored her six years ago.
Leave it to Ansel Elgort to make a note denying claims of sexual misconduct all about HIM. “I didn’t handle the breakup well? Deeply ashamed and disgusted? But…you did nothing wrong?
I know I must continue to reflect, learn, and work to grow in empathy.
How does anyone need to…learn empathy? This line reads like it was written by an actual sociopath (if sociopaths ever apologized for anything). This bitch really is like a walking, talking potato that morphed into Patrick Bateman.
