-It is a long but poignant read considering his own mother the late Great Patty Dukes child actor career and the horrible abuse she suffered, and becoming later in life a mental health illness advocate. She was one of the first big celebrities to come out and speak out on mental illness.
-ONTD LOTR fans will recognize the pic Sean uses for Harvey Weinstein
-In the midst of the post, Sean responded in goodwill. One in particular stands out as someone commented asking about his own mother and the ordeal she went through. It is heartbreaking in terms of how this issue is something that Hollywood still does especially to young child actors. This in conjecture`with recent news of the APA agency firing off someone for their misconduct amongst his clients and etc. This has to change, everybody should be treated with dignity and respect no matter what status or position they are in.
-What Sean said is true, especially about President Trump in particular. He is a pos and any person who uses their power to coerce or intimidate people are horrible and foul creatures on our planet.
-Also random tidbit from one of the commenter who met Sean
-Thank you mods for letting me re-edit the post a lot, I hope that this will suffice.
-Also forgot to mention that Sean is going to be in Season 2 of Stranger Things, so yay on that and hope he's not a Barb 2.0.
