More Alleged Victims Come Forward in Jonathan Majors Case
Actor Jonathan Majors is facing new allegations from more alleged victims in his ongoing legal case, according to a report by Variety. The Manhattan district attorney’s office is said to be receiving cooperation from the new accusers but has not provided any comment. Majors’ lawyer has maintained his client’s innocence and submitted “irrefutable evidence” to the district attorney to prove the charges are false. However, Majors has already suffered repercussions as his manager and publicist have dropped him from their rosters.
Majors was arrested on March 25 for allegedly assaulting a 30-year-old woman. His lawyer denied the charges and expected his client to be cleared of all charges. Despite this, the rising star has been dropped from multiple projects, including The Man in My Basement and an MLB ad campaign. He is also no longer in consideration for the lead role in the Otis Redding biopic.
Majors has had a promising career until now, with roles in successful films such as Creed III and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He has also been generating buzz for his performance in Magazine Dreams, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year.
However, crisis PR expert Ronn Torossian suggests the allegations may pose an uphill battle for Majors to maintain his career. While his future with Marvel is unclear, there are no plans to recast his role as Kang the Conqueror in the Loki series. In addition, Major is still attached to two other projects, but it remains to be seen if he will face further fallout as the legal process continues.
