For instance, I have a lot of feminist nerd friends who are extremely vocal about supporting all women who are survivors of sexual assault, yet both George Takei and Aziz Ansari have both been publicly accused of either assault or harassment and the people who are so vocal about supporting these women won't even do so much as stop following these guys on Facebook because they're fans.
I'm not trying to get into an argument about whether or not these men did what they were accused of or how I feel, I would just like to ask if anyone else has noticed selective support from people who are up in arms about sexual assault when someone they don't care about is accused, but see them remain silent or judgmental when their favorite celebrities are outed as assailants.

They don't fight every case because every case is different. They look at the Aziz case and see a woman who made bad decisions and regret it while the Weinstein case was a habitual abuse of power. They look at a situation critically and make conclusions. It sounds rude but you're the problem, not them

I don't think they're really hypocrites, because not every accusation is the same or has the same level of credibility.
