Default Charles in Charge star Alexander Polinsky to accuse Scott Baio of sexual harassment

...and sexual abuse as a minor

http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/scot...ge-1202697933/

In supporting co-star Nicole Eggert last week in her sexual misconduct allegations against Baio, Polinsky accused Baio of physically assaulting and mentally abusing him. Variety reports that Polinsky has scheduled a press conference for Wednesday in which he'll also accuse Baio of sexually abusing and sexually harassing him when he was a child actor on the syndicated sitcom. The press conference will mark Polinsky's first time speaking out about his allegations.

Alexander Polinsky calls Scott Baio a "tyrant" who would pull his pants down in front of the crew and bully him with homophobic taunts
The Charles in Charge star says Baio abused him on set of the syndicated sitcom when he was between the ages of 12 and 15. “I dreaded the teasing and daily attacks on my personality,” said Polinsky of Baio's alleged "hazing" and "torture," which included throwing a cup of hot tea in his face. Polinsky was joined at his press conference this morning by his attorney Lisa Bloom and co-star Nicole Eggert, who has accused Baio of molesting her when she was underage.

Scott Baio denies all allegations from former Charles in Charge co-stars Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky
“For reasons I don’t understand, I am the target of false claims that threaten everything that is important in my life," Baio said in a statement read by his spokesperson at a press conference. "I am hurt and I am angry, but mostly, I am stunned that anybody can be so cruel to attack not just me, but my family."

If Scott was so awful, then why did Alex Polinsky show up to Baio’s 50th birthday party? Why did Nicole?

Pantsing someone is not sexual harrassment. And the use of the word “f*ggot” was commonplace among boys and young men during the 80s. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now, but if that constitutes sexual harrassment, then a whole lot of people are guilty of it.

Lisa Bloom, who is representing both, is a vile person. Google her.

Oh yea. I heard that word all the time in my school. Just awful but that's the way it was. And I agree. I just don't understand why Nicole and Alex would have anything to do with Scott after the TV show ended. Nicole even appeared on Scott's reality show a few years ago. You know I was bullied in school and I never wanted to associate with any of them again. It's not normal.

The beginning of this video says it all. She was good friends with him way after the show. I'm not saying Scott is an angel - he should've known better being 11 years older than her, but I don't know - you shouldn't judge people by today's standard.

As for Alexander - okay what happened was ****ty, but being bullied every so often is a part of childhood. Excessive bullying is wrong, but the odd prank or name-calling is all part of growing up.

NOTE : Whilst googling I see that Scott is very pro-Trump / Republican. Hollywood being very Democratic, I wonder if these events have a deeper purpose.
