Bryan Singer Responds to New Sexual Misconduct Allegations as 'Homophobic Smear Piece'

Bryan Singer is responding to the new sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

The allegations were made by four men, who at the time of the claims, were underage.

“The last time I posted about this subject, Esquire magazine was preparing to publish an article written by a homophobic journalist who has a bizarre obsession with me dating back to 1997. After careful fact-checking and, in consideration of the lack of credible sources, Esquire chose not to publish this piece of vendetta journalism,” Singer‘s statement read (via Deadline).

Singer continued, “That didn’t stop this writer from selling it to The Atlantic. It’s sad that The Atlantic would stoop to this low standard of journalistic integrity. Again, I am forced to reiterate that this story rehashes claims from bogus lawsuits filed by a disreputable cast of individuals willing to lie for money or attention. And it is no surprise that, with Bohemian Rhapsody being an award-winning hit, this homophobic smear piece has been conveniently timed to take advantage of its success.”

Singer was fired as the director of Bohemian Rhapsody weeks before filming wrapped.

    Yeah, there are too many people with similar stories over the years for it to be lies.

    Umm…except for the fact that it isn’t just 1 writer going after him. There have been so many accusations over the years, it’s pretty much an open secret in Hollywood that dude is a pedophile. Hollywood is FULL of pedophilia but they just gloss over it with the me too movement.
