Steven Seagal accused of raping extra on 1994 ‘On Deadly Ground’
Among the public figures I least expect to be accused of sexual misbehavior: Tom Hanks, Jimmy Carter. If one of them was accused, that would truly be a newsworthy "man bites dog" story.
But Steven Seagal? Not so much. I just sort of assumed he was already under siege.
But this goes far beyond exploitation and into criminal territory. If this story is true, it is a really poignant and tragic one. She claims she was 18 and a virgin, and that this was a forcible rape.
“I think because of the situation I was completely caught off guard. Tears were coming down my face and I know that it hurt. He was three times my size.”
You know that size part is true. Segal is at least three times the size of most objects in the known universe. He wears muumuus and kimonos because he needs no stinkin' Van Heusen belt. He already has a Van Allen Belt.
