Accountability is a beautiful thing.
Following the industry rocking news regarding the on-set environments on Cinestate produced film-sets being a haven for abuse with zero accountability (story forthcoming), Rob Galluzzo, one of the main voices on the popular horror themed ShockWaves podcast has been removed from his duties. Below are the tweets of a former writer who outed Galluzzo for his long history of systemic sexual harassment.
Many former writers have also come forward to confirm and quantify his history of behavior. In response and true accused abuser fashion he has deleted all his social media accounts and retreated into the shadows until this all blows over, if it ever does. What this means for the podcast is unknown other than being put on an immediate hiatus.
In a statement shown below, ShockWaves announced the firing.
