Hollywood Director Caught Knowingly Employing REGISTERED CHILD SEX OFFENDER

Actress Olivia Munn raised the alarm with studio executives after learning of Streigel's sex offender status.
20th Century Fox has purged one scene from its upcoming ‘Predator’ movie after it was discovered that one of the actors is a registered child sex offender. The director apologized when it emerged he knew about the conviction.

The scene was cut after executives were made aware that actor Steven Wilder Striegel is a registered sex offender. Striegel played a minor role in the film, featuring in only one scene.

“When the studio learned the details, his one scene in the film was removed within 24 hours,” Fox said in a statement as cited by Variety. “We were not aware of his background during the casting process due to legal limitations that impede studios from running background checks on actors.”

Actress and ‘Predator’ star Olivia Munn, who acted in the scene with Striegel, learned of the actor’s conviction as a child sex offender and alerted the studio on August 15.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Predator director James Black was aware of Striegel’s status as a sex offender at the time he hired him. Striegel has previously appeared in several films directed by Black, including ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘The Nice Guys.’

“Having read this morning’s news reports, it has sadly become clear to me that I was misled by a friend I really wanted to believe was telling me the truth when he described the circumstances of his conviction,”Black said. ”I believe strongly in giving people second chances – but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped.”

“After learning more about the affidavit, transcripts and additional details surrounding Steve Striegel’s sentence, I am deeply disappointed in myself. I apologise to all of those, past and present, I’ve let down by having Steve around them without giving them a voice in the decision,” Black added.

Striegel pleaded guilty to two felony counts of ‘risk of injury to a child’ and ‘enticing a minor by computer,’for his internet relationship with a 14-year-old Connecticut girl in 2009. Messages between the two were found by the girl’s father who alerted authorities. Striegel was later convicted of...Read More HERE

Sooooo registered sex offenders are never, ever allowed to work again? How then are they to earn a living? If a person is dangerous keep him locked up but if you let him out you got to let him live.

It's more like Hollywood has a problem. As long as Hollywood pedos keep helping pedos, they will never stop the industrial abuse of children that is going on there.

I see and understand what you mean by Hollywood's problem with pedos, Mike Miles but Hollywood is a sewer of perversion and immorality and always as been. What I'm talking about (and I realize it's a difficult problem to address) is that the label "sex offender" could be branded on a guy for grabbing a chicks ass at a bar if she prosecutes. He hardly constitutes a threat to society. Neither does a guy who dated a 16 year old when he was 18. They were kids doing kids crap. But once the Scarlet Letter is affixed the guy still has to earn a living, feed a family, pay rent and live like a human being. Until such time comes where all "sex offenders" aren't categorized the same to the public we and by extension they have a problem.

Hollywood will always have a problem. When that much money, power and fame is concentrated in so few people they are actually better known than Presidents they will be corrupted and their corruption will be corrosive as corruption is want to do. We cannot help the Weinstein's (who are worth tens of millions and should be able to help themselves) and the sewer thy created to wallow in.
