Director Ava DuVernay Delivers Epic Reaction After Shady Central Park 5 Prosecutor Bashes Her
There are some celebs who realize when they’ve lost a battle and then there’s former Central Park 5 prosecutor, Linda Fairstein, who’s doing a lackluster job trying to clean up her image. Interestingly, she’s singlehandedly managing to tarnish her rep’ even more further, now that her role in the false rape and assault prosecution of 5 minority teen males was revealed in the Netflix film, When They See Us.
Since the film’s release, the prosecutor-turned-book-author has been dropped by her book publisher, Dutton; forced to resign from the board of 4 prominent non-profit organizations; called out by millions for her seemingly heartless actions in the case…and it’s only just begun.
Instead of taking a truthful look in the mirror and admitting her wrongs, Fairstein has opted to write a lengthy rant-filled op-ed piece for The Wall Street Journal. In the piece, she’s seemingly attempting to make us all unlearn what we’ve now learned about her and her questionable practices during the Central Park 5 trial.
Linda Speaks Out…Still Blames Innocent Central Park 5 Men…And Ava DuVernay
Linda Fairstein now says that although serial rapist, Matia Reyes, confessed to raping the White female Central Park jogger- with DNA evidence to back his claim- that does not mean the now exonerated 5 Black males (Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, and Korey Wise) she falsely prosecuted are innocent of committing other crimes in the park…which they were also fully exonerated of. Laaaawd….
“Mr. Reyes’s confession, DNA match and claim that he acted alone required that the rape charges against the five be vacated. I agreed with that decision, and still do. But the other charges, for crimes against other victims, should not have been vacated,” Fairstein wrote.
Linda also slammed Ava DuVernay for directing the Netflix film that put her on blast, calling her presentation of the case an “outrage.” She added, “Ms. DuVernay does not define me, and her film does not speak the truth.”
