Two Directors Speak Out About Jonathan Majors’ Alleged ‘Vicious, Cruel’ Behavior And More After Actor’s Assault Arrest
By Erik Swann,
This weekend, it was reported that well-known Hollywood actor Jonathan Majors was arrested and is accused of committing multiple offenses. The 33-year-old star – who is no longer in custody and denied the claims – has reportedly been charged with assault, strangulation and harassment. This all stems from an altercation with his purported girlfriend in New York City on Friday. The Internet was set ablaze after the story was reported, with many sharing their personal takes on the situation. Amid the flurry of social media comments, two directors have taken to the web and made additional claims against Major. One of them even alleges that he engaged in “vicious, cruel” behavior.
A.B. Allen, a rising filmmaker, is one of the individuals who has spoken out against Jonathan Majors in the aftermath of the arrest news. However, it would seem that this actually isn’t the first time that Allen has alluded to the Marvel star and his alleged behavior. The director posted a message to Twitter back in February, in which they referred to an actor that the Internet “has violently fallen head over heels for.” Allen shared other thoughts in the post as well:
The comments have seen renewed interest since the Lovecraft Country star was taken into custody. One user even screenshotted A.B. Allen’s original post, and opined that “Now we know who this tweet was about.” Allen confirmed the assumption with a retweet of their own:
A.B. Allen, whose credits include Your Turn and Rough Draft , later apologized for the “overly-flippant tone” used in that last post. In the two additional updates, they went on to clarify the knowledge they have of the star’s alleged actions:
The other director who’s taken issue with the Kang the Conqueror actor is Tim Nicolai, a veteran of Broadway and co-founder of Society Theater. Nicolai’s comments have since been made private but were recorded by The Direct . The creative made several serious accusations against the Da 5 Bloods alum , calling him “a sociopath and abuser”:
Commentators subsequently asked why Tim Nicolai didn’t speak out sooner if he was aware of alleged negative behavior on the actor’s part. He responded by saying that “people have tried” but that ultimately, those trying to legitimize the allegations “needed a victim to come forward.” Nicolai also claimed to be close to those who have been impacted by the A-lister’s alleged actions.
Jonathan Majors was arrested in New York early Saturday morning after authorities received a call from someone in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. His reported girlfriend told police that she and Majors got into an argument Friday evening while in a taxi. After the woman apparently tried to peek at the entertainer’s phone, he reportedly got physical, with the lady saying he grabbed her neck. She was subsequently taken to a hospital to be treated for a laceration behind her ear, redness and marks on her face and is now said to be in stable condition.
Though these accounts from the two directors should not be taken as fact right now, the severity of the accusations cannot be denied. Time will tell how this case plays out and whether others might corroborate the stories.
