Hey, presumption of innocence is fine and all in court cases, but stop using it to tell women they have to give men who have been accused by multiple, verified sources the “benefit of the doubt”.

No we don’t. We don’t have to socially or financially support men who are a threat to us. We don’t owe strange celebrities our loyalty because you think we shouldn’t pass judgement unless there has been a trial and they have been convicted.

Besides the fact that most of these abusers will never face charges let alone a trial, we are allowed to consider their past actions, behaviour and the accusations against them as a reason to not support them.

Stop trying to use the presumption of innocence as a way to guilt women into supporting predators.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
