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. See what else she wrote.

Max did not immediately respond to the allegations.

Actress Whitney Moore Condemns Ex-Boyfriend Max Landis for 'Horrific, Inhumane Things' He Did to Her

Whitney Moore is speaking out to publicly condemn her ex-boyfriend Max Landis for the “horrific, inhumane things” he did to her.

The 29-year-old actress and YouTube host wrote a statement on Twitter in which she explained that she never thought she would publicly talk about their relationship as she thought Max was working on himself as a person. Then she realized he “never got any better.”

Max, the writer of films like Chronicle, American Ultra, and Bright, has been accused of sexual assault multiple times.

“I never thought I would say anything publicly about the things Max Landis did to me because I believed that forgiveness was the correct way to heal,” Whitney wrote on Twitter. “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.”

“Now I know that this was a lie; he never got any better,” Whitney added. “He hid behind his friendship with me and several other good people so he could continue hurting people behind closed doors and not be questioned.”

Someone asked Whitney if she’s doing okay and she responded, “SO good. Living my life and surrounded by people who love me 💫.”
