    Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz believes sexual misconduct allegations about his father

    Nine women have come forward to accuse playwright Israel Horovitz of sexual misconduct, the New York Times reported Thursday.

    Jocelyn Meinhardt was 19 in the summer of 1989 when she joined Horovitz in a fellowship at the Gloucester Stage Company in Massachusetts. Meinhardt had known him already, as his son, Adam Horovitz of Beastie Boys fame, was her high school boyfriend. In the New York Times report, Meinhardt claimed Israel drove her to his family home, where he began to kiss and fondle her. He then allegedly led her to his bedroom, where she claimed he raped her.

    A then-16-year-old au pair, Frédérique Giffard, for the Horovitz family also came forward and claimed he groped her breasts and placed her hand on his erect penis.

    Seven more women reported acts of sexual misconduct by the playwright, who has written works such as “The Indian Wants the Bronx,” “Park Your Car in Harvard Yard” and “Out of the Mouths of Babes.” Maia Ermansons, 21 when her experience occurred last year, detailed her story online, claiming he “pulled me onto his lap and licked my lips and tried sticking his tongue in my mouth several times.”

    He allegedly told her, “No great woman has ever become great by being a good girl.” Israel left her a voicemail a few months later, apologizing for the “terrible, terrible misunderstanding.” She saved it.

    The Gloucester theater cut ties with Horovitz last week after learning of Ermansons’ allegations.

    “I apologize to the brave women who came forward in 1992 and 1993 but were not listened to,” Elizabeth Neumeier, the Gloucester board’s current president, also said in a statement. “We are individually and collectively appalled by the allegations, both old and new.”

    Israel, now 78, responded to the allegations, saying that though he has “a different memory of some of these events, I apologize with all my heart to any woman who has ever felt compromised by my actions, and to my family and friends who have put their trust in me. To hear that I have caused pain is profoundly upsetting, as is the idea that I might have crossed a line with anyone who considered me a mentor.”

    Adam, better known to his fans as Ad-Rock, released a statement supporting the nine women who have raised allegations against his father.

    “I believe the allegations against my father are true,” he told the Times, “and I stand behind the women that made them.”

    Beastie Dad Israel Horovitz Fights For His Right To Party

    From the New York Times:

    By JESSICA BENNETT NOV. 30, 2017

    … Jocelyn Meinhardt was 19 when she began a summer fellowship in 1989 with Mr. Horovitz at the Gloucester Stage Company in Massachusetts, where he was artistic director. She knew Mr. Horovitz; one of his sons, Adam Horovitz, who would go on to fame with the Beastie Boys, had been her high school boyfriend. That first night, she said, Mr. Horovitz drove her in his convertible — its license plate read AUTHOR — to the family home. He locked the door, then kissed and fondled her. She began to cry. Mr. Horovitz then led her to his bedroom, where she said he raped her.

    Shouldn’t that last sentence read:

    Mr. Horovitz then dragged her to his bedroom, where she said he raped her.

    Or held a gun to her head while forced her to his bedroom?

    His son, Adam Horovitz, said in his own statement: “I believe the allegations against my father are true, and I stand behind the women that made them.”

    Sounds like some family issues …

    Mr. Horovitz’s behavior around women had long been the subject of whispers. But since at least 1993, Gloucester Stage officials had known it was more than mere speculation: that year, Mr. Horovitz was the subject of an exposé in The Boston Phoenix in which 10 women accused him of sexual harassment and assault.

    I wonder how many girls raped by powerful jews were simply suicided or disappeared. The jew Woody Allen alluded to this jewish practice in "Crimes and Misdemeanors" in which a shikse that is "causing trouble" for a jew is outrightly killed, with the jewish justice system turning a blind eye.

    Kikes are up there with the rape ape nig nogs and rug pilot rapefugees when it comes to sexually assaulting women. Brother Nathaniel has a good YouTube video on the carnal jew.
