Doesnt surprise me..hollywood is full of creeps, pedophiles, rapists and sadists...this goes all the way back to its earliest days..young girls jump off greyhound buses in hollywood from all over farmland america...This draws in predators like child molesters to child beauty peagents.."THE CASTING COUCH" was coined even before Marilyn Monroe..who was passed around by studio execs like the flu
She needed therapy, an Intervention maybe, she was very loved? no, that's the lie they tell to themselves to not get tortured by the negligence they committed, clearly nobody asked her what was really going on in her life, why she was suffering so much, if you approach correctly people open, they assumed everything was fine without actually caring for her emotional state, if they did they'd have seen Heroin consumption as a symptom and not an impossibility, that the mother, should have spotted, and she was clearly in denial of it, these people are probably Christians, they pray to their god and have faith everything will be OK for sure, 'coz god, yeah I see how well that worked here
Do something about this America!!! I just happened stumble on a vid "celebs you didn't know died in 2017". She was in it. When they said a life of drugs my first thought was ...."HOLLYWOOD DID THIS TO HER". So I YouTube her name and I find this!!
I am disgusted with Hollywood and will never watch another movie in my life!!
My god how could someone do something to a beautiful soul like this ? Then you guys throw her out!
There will pay back for all of this in the next life you sick f...ks
HOLLYWOOD NEEDS TO FALL!!!!!!
I wonder how true this story is or is it just a cover up to save face in the public eye somehow?
Did she file an assault charge, or write something about it before?
Why am I even asking what can that solve?
surfitlive True. Why TF are you asking such an ignorant question? You think they're trying to "save face"? Perhaps she or they are making it up? _Yeah, sure. Cause most 15/16 yo girls just start shooting up heroin for the fun of it. I mean it couldn't possibly be because that's how she found a way to cope with the trauma of being raped?_ Oh wait! Maybe that's what it is. And your other comment was just as ignorant. " 'I believe the Lord has set her completely free.' Is he saying that the Lord is drugs?" Uhm, no. He's saying that by her passing, God has allowed her to finally find the peace that she was so desperately trying search for in this life.
"I believe the Lord set her free completely"
So your saying the LORD (of the Bible) is drugs????
This is why she and others don't make it.
The people that should help believe in Fairy dust to help solve the problem and not ATTACKING it head on.
Or understanding the root cause of i, which they may be a part of.
Also the users are wrong, destroying your body & mind does nothing to your attackers no erases what happened.
Maybe for a moment while your mind is turned off by the drugs but then you end up with MORE problems afterwards, and the ORIGINAL problem has not changed.
I was raped when i was 19 in the park and it was basically very bad sex forced on me. I worked hard to get an internal view of that incident that wouldn't drown me, and was able to go forward - not telling anyone. But if you were beaten, hurt, humiliated, gang raped, etc. then you would have so much to try to get beyond. This must be true of men who are assaulted, as well. PTS has its ugly way. I'm sorry for this lovely young woman, and also her family having to suffer through it unable to help.
Ian Fraughton trust me he will get his. When you create Karma like that for yourself. Trust me you don’t sleep good at night. You’ll pay one way or another, but karma will find your ass. You may not be there to see it, but you will answer for your deeds.🙏🏾
+Aggie that's good for you, but some don't handle things as well. Plus, did you have bipolar too? That makes it really hard to deal with things. Many people get into serious trouble from that disease even when nothing has ever happened to them. They say the average person takes almost ten years to deal with it and get it under control. It makes people really impulsive at times and other times crushingly depressed and hopeless and willing to do anything to get rid of the pain even when there was no outside pain never mind when there was.
+Aggie Makes me sick at heart how you are responding to what happened to Amanda. I am sorry what happened to you, too, but then open your heart all the more to somebody else who went through a horrible brutal attack. Especially when you don't know the whole story. So many actors have come forward and saying what a sweet person she was. This should not happen to anybody. Yes, I wish she had gotten a support system right away. Her sister said she was ashamed. It was not her fault.
+AggieGeeGee Im sorry you were raped, but, as I said, everyone is different and that is ok. And secondly, I dont know if how you were dealing with it was healthier and maybe lead to better coping mechanisms and healing, whereas with her, she may not have the support system and resources. I mean, not even her sister knew she had been raped at 15 and just found out. It is easy to say and abstractly judge people are losers, slackers or assholes who make bad decisions, but things always look different on the inside. yes drug use may lead one ot make irresponsible decisions.
But addiction is also a disease and mental illness like toxic waste for the mind. To say that she used her rape as an "excuse" to make bad decisions is contemptible. People arent born wanting to be drug addicts and train wrecks and outside forces and circumstance matter. The tragedies we endure as people dont happen in a vacuum. Maybe if more people recognized that, less people would die and suffer as a consequence.
