Jezebel recently published an article Rape, Lies And The Internet that explains every twist and turn of the the Conor Oberst alleged rape claim to this point. It’s a very interesting and information filled read. Check out the whole article here and a snippet below after the jump.
This is ridiculous. I can see both sides on this. I really can.. but the evidence in regard to her credibility is pretty damning.
Could it have happened? Yes.
Did it? Who knows.
But I can’t blame him for filing a suit if it really isn’t true. If they did approach her to publicly retract the statements & she failed to do so - what is the next step really? He has to know he won’t see money from it, but he has to do something to show how serious he is about it.
Obviously if it is true, he’s a total dick face for snowballing her.
I’m just saying that if I were him & it never happened.. I’d be doing anything & everything I could (including digging into her history & filing a lawsuit) to clear my name. Some people will always think of him as a rapist now, regardless of the truth. That’s got to be just as bad as someone not believing you were raped.
