Rapper, Mystikal has been back in court ahead of his upcoming rape and kidnapping trial, but his lawyer has complained that the ‘Ghetto Fabulous’ rapper has been wrongly caught up as a result of the #MeToo movement.
Lawyer, Joel Pearce stated:
Mystikal has pleaded not guilty to the charges of rape and second-degree kidnapping that were filed against him by an unnamed woman. The woman claims that she was raped by Mystikal and another man, Averweone Darnell Holman, while a woman, Tenichia Monieck, is accused of obstruction of justice after allegedly trying to get the accuser to retract her story.
So, let’s get this straight. If the unnamed woman has made the story up, then she is as despicable as Mystikal and Holman are if they actually committed the crime.
However, it seems disingenuous to bring the whole MeToo movement into the matter. It’s almost belittling to the movement which has done so much good when it comes to exposing abusive practices that have been going on for far too long in the entertainment industry…
What do you think?
Mystikal’s trial begins on March 20.
