Max Landis Accused of Emotional & Sexual Abuse by 8 Women

Max Landis has been accused of emotional and sexual abuse by at least eight women in a bombshell report from The Daily Beast on Tuesday (June 18).

The 33-year-old Bright screenplay writer and Me Him Her director was accused of manipulating and even raping women during their relationships.

One of the women, Ani Baker, previously came forward on Twitter to warn women about Max‘s alleged behavior: “He tells everyone a different story about his past, his ‘diagnoses’ and his behavior. He leaves out the things you wouldn’t stand for,” she wrote.

In one instance, Ani claimed that she playfully slapped his butt and he put his hands around her throat and threatened to kill her.

Actress Anna Akana also spoke out about Max‘s behavior in the past.

In the piece, the women claim that Max uses a circle of friends dubbed “The Colour Society” to entice women, and then torment them, humiliate them and in some cases, sexually violate them. One woman described him as a “cult leader.”

Another woman claimed he would pretend to hit her and laugh when she would flinch.

Actress Whitney Moore also condemned Max in a statement earlier in the month.

“I even defended him, for so long, because I truly believed he was getting better and that the ways he tortured me was isolated to our relationship. I thought there was no point in sharing the horrific, inhumane things he did to me because publicly condemning someone who is working on themselves is unproductive,” she said.

Max did not immediately respond to the allegations.
