Bret Easton Ellis Blasts Dharun Ravi 'Witch Hunt', Blames Parents
Bret Easton Ellis chimes in on the Dharun Ravi trial:
"Dharun Ravi might be a jerk but if a jury convicts him because Tyler Clementi killed himself then the US justice system is seriously f**ked...If Tyler Clementi had not killed himself we would have never heard of Dharun Ravi. This is a witch hunt pure and simple and it sickens me...Bullying=Suicide? Personally I blame the parents and an entire culture that indulges a childproof world where pain and losing doesn't exist....I was bullied. It was awful. But I learned a lot. I learned how to cope. It taught me things: people are cruel, the world sucks. I grew up."
The jury deliberated for four hours today and will begin again on Thursday morning.
