And now for the most uncomfortable post you’ll read all day: David O. Russell, the director of The Fighter, was accused by his transgender niece of groping one of her breasts. Russell claims that she allowed him to reach under her shirt and feel her boobs and … you know what? Just read it yourself. TMZ reports:
According to the police report taken 3 days after the incident, Russell’s niece … who was born a man and is currently in the preoperative phase of her transition … told cops the two had been doing abdominal exercises when he asked questions about her transformation. The niece — who does NOT have a blood relation to Russell — told cops they began to talk about her breasts … and how certain hormones she’s taking have made them larger.
According to the report, the niece claims Russell then “put his hands under [her] top and felt both breasts.” Cops say the woman said she felt “uncomfortable” … but admitted she “did not ask him to stop at any time.” Investigators later contacted Russell … and according to the report, the director confirmed he DID touch his niece’s breasts … but only after she gave him permission.
Cops say Russell explained that during the conversation about her chest, the niece informed him that one of her breasts was bigger than the other. The official report says … Russell told cops his niece then “allowed [him] to feel both of [her] breasts.”
… What the shitting shit, people? Also, even if your niece does, however contradictory to logic it may seem, let you feel her boob, you should probably NOT FEEL HER BOOB. Just putting that out there.
