[City, State] – Two women have courageously stepped forward with alarming allegations of physical and emotional abuse against actor Jonathan Majors. The serious accusations, reported by the New York Times, shed light on a history of volatile behavior exhibited by the renowned actor. This news comes just months after Majors was found guilty of reckless assault and harassment in a separate incident.
Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper have revealed that they were involved with Majors between 2013 and 2019, describing him as a controlling and threatening figure who isolated them from their friends and hindered their professional pursuits. Their statements were backed by interviews conducted by the New York Times with an additional 20 individuals who also claimed to have witnessed Majors’ alleged volatile tendencies.
In response to the allegations, Majors’ lawyer confessed that the actor had indeed made hurtful remarks but categorically denied most of the claims of physical abuse. This denial raises questions about the extent of the harm inflicted on both women and the credibility of Majors’ defense.
Disturbingly, these latest allegations coincide with the impending sentencing of Majors for the prior charges of reckless assault and harassment. The court’s decision, initially scheduled for a specified date, has now been postponed until April 8.
Duncan, one of the survivors, testified in a pretrial statement that Majors had threatened to strangle and kill her in 2016. She further detailed an incident where she purportedly endured physical abuse, with Majors slamming her body into their mailbox, leaving visible bruises. Hooper, the second survivor, claimed that she was forbidden from discussing her relationship with Majors and felt trapped and isolated due to his alleged manipulation.
Shockingly, the negative impact of Majors’ behavior appears to extend beyond his personal relationships. Multiple cast and crew members from the hit HBO show “Lovecraft Country” have since come forward, detailing their anxieties and concerns working alongside the actor. Their testimonies speak of a hostile work environment where Majors’ presence engendered fear, making it challenging to carry out their professional duties.
Notably, Jessica Pollini and Lisa Zugschwerdt, both female crew members, unitedly submitted a complaint to HBO regarding Majors’ alarming behavior. However, they were met with a mere apology from the actor, leaving them feeling disregarded and unsupported by the network.
With these latest allegations and the mounting number of individuals voicing their concerns, it remains to be seen how the industry and fans will respond to Jonathan Majors. Will this prompt a reevaluation of his actions and a critical examination of the wider issue of abuse within Hollywood? Only time will tell. As these two brave women come forward to share their truth, it is a stark reminder that the impact of abuse reaches far and wide, affecting lives both on and off the silver screen.
