"It's difficult to get due process because there's no real place to adjudicate it except in court, which takes forever," he continued.
Last year, a former Rolling Stone employee came forward to say the Rolling Stone co-founder and publisher had sexually assaulted them in 1983, and Wenner has yet to deny the accusations. “There’s some truth to it, but it does not fit any illegal, immoral, or unethical, or go in any way that direction. All you can say is no, not me too, and wait."
He went on to say he thinks the sexual assault taking place at countless college campuses should be of higher priority. “This is student-to-student rape. It’s different than being harassed on the job or having your butt pinched or whatever you’re complaining about." What Wenner fails to realize is that by dismissing some sexual harassment as "harmless," it makes it easier for people to gloss over and enable those guilty of it.
Wenner talked about the allegations and #MeToo movement in the interview while promoting the documentary about Rolling Stone's history, which aired on HBO last year but will be making its way to digital distribution platforms March 27.
