The last big story like this locally (Chuck's) turned out to be true, and now that guy is facing criminal charges.
I'm inclined to believe there are a bunch of creepy dudes in the industry, which seems more likely than there being some large number of people who would make false accusations.
To be technically correct, the guy from Chucks was arrested in Ontario for crimes he allegedly committed there after a witness came forward and made a statement to police. From what I know, he has not been charged with anything here and nobody here has made a police complaint.
Here is the flip side of the rush to judgment and social media attacks. From what I understand, in one of the cases brought to light, one of the people who was accused wasn't at the party when the event happened. He had been there and then left. The 'survivor' hadn't realized he had left and named him along with others on social media. The person lost their job, was blackballed from the industry and was never given any chance to plead their case. The reaction from the 'survivor' community was that either "he was a rich white privledged guy anyways" or "he had been at the party and should have known his buddies would act inappropriately so he should have prevented it".
