You mean sort of like the Church? See, the thing is, there are pedophiles. The thing is, there are "venues" which make it easier for pedophiles to find prey. People turning the other way is not confined to the Church, or to Hollywood. Or to pedophilia for that matter.
I am drifting off topic here, but I am trying to show that Hollywood is a giant cesspool of hypocritical people who have a do as I say problem, while refusing to out the pedo's who are obviously ramapnt.
The Alt-left was a dig at the alt-right nonsense, and if you have ever actually been to Hollywood, you would know EXACTLY what i am talking about.

I wouldn't put my money on Charlie Sheen. He was 21 during the filming of Lucas, and I would hardly call him "powerful" or even influential during the 80's. And according to rumors he has a taste for female hookers...? Sheen's family may have been powerful in a way, but powerful enough? I care too little about those people to really know.
However, the major issue is pedophilia and abuse of children in Hollywood (or rather the movie industry). It is literally an "open secret". There was a documentary (probably more on the same issue) made a couple of years ago titled "An Open Secret". All kinds of law suits and drama followed the movie, meaning it got little to no public exposure. You can see it on YouTube - Google "An Open Secret Unedited". Some of the content may be against the T&Cs so I'm not going to embed it.
It does however give a horrifying glimpse inside the pedophilia in Hollywood. You'll see Corey Feldman in there...
The scary part is that parents are just as much to blame for the abuse as the actual abusers. Parents turn a blind eye to the abuse as long as the kids get their fame. As with Michael Jackson: What kind of parent let their kid have a sleep over with a full grown man?
Hollywood should be burned to the ground if you ask me. The sickos for harming kids. And the rest for making the one crappy reboot of a classic movie after the other.
Edit: On second thought. This is an interesting take on Charlie Sheen...?

Yes, but the church is not the focus of the OP. You could bring up Boy Scouts as well, but again...that is a whole other topic. Americans, especially for some reason, like to pedestal people then rip them down. I don't know why, we just do.
Ooooh, love the Kinks. Might have to pop over to youtube and get a fix of LOLA. And yes, I picked that song knowing the irony.

Yep, all those childhood vaccines gave me a touch of the 'tism, now I don't feel reverence for celebrities. It's a hard, socially inept existence.
