Curtis Lepore is a rapist.
In September of last year, Curtis Lepore, ex-vocalist for GhostXShip and now “vine famous” shithead, was arrested after he raped his ex-girlfriend. She hit her head while filming a video and felt nauseous, so he went to pick her up and “watch over her” in case she had a concussion, despite her telling him no thank you. She went to bed later that night feeling sick and woke up to him raping her. Curtis’s laywer came to his defense by saying that “she said stop and he stopped”, however California law is very clear: having sex with someone while they are unconscious or sleeping is rape.
In this Rolling Stone article, he states “We had sex every day when she got to L.A. So, we had sex that same week. I would have never done anything that I didn’t think a girl was insinuating, anyway”. Sorry Curtis, prior consent is not consent.
On Feb 21st of this year, Curtis Lepore accepted a deal and plead no contest to felony assault as a means to dismiss the rape charge and avoid jail time. Don’t let the language used here fool you. While he is not a convicted rapist, his ex has said that he admitted to the rape on tape, he is on record excusing his actions because of prior consent, and his own mother was quoted as saying “He was lovingly waking her up. He did not rape her”. I’m just going to say this again… having sex with someone who is not able to give consent is rape.
The reason I’m posting this is because not everyone is aware of all of this. I keep seeing gifs from his videos, photos of him in his old band, and vines of him and his dog. It’s extremely upsetting as a victim, as a woman, and as a human being who knows that rape is wrong and I just want to make you all aware. This man is dangerous. Please stop spreading his videos around like nothing happened. It’s just another reminder that once again, rapists will walk away free while their victims are left to pick up pieces.
I knew it was only a matter of time before people stamped “rapist” on him. Good.
Don’t read his tweets about the incident. He vicitim blames like a mother fucker just because he got away with it.
can you please post this?!
