‘The Expanse’ Star Cas Anvar Accused of Sexual Assault and Harassment on Twitter

248

Multiple women have come forward on Twitter stating they were sexually assaulted, harassed, or aggressively preyed upon via messaging and at conventions by Cas Anvar, an actor and one of the stars of the hit Amazon sci-fi space series ‘The Expanse’.

It all seemed to start with a single tweet from a woman who says she was pressured to join Anvar in his hotel room at a convention when she was just 17-years-old, he gave alcohol to, and forcibly kissed. Another Twitter user replied saying one of her friends was assaulted by the actor.

Another woman on Twitter says she met Anvar at a convention several years ago and began receiving “dark” messages from him.

This then leads into Twitter users beginning to show screenshots of direct and other messages showing to be from Anvar himself.

Anvar was routinely viewed as a ‘great guy’ and someone that is down to earth and sort of ‘normal’ by fans. He has a history of supporting good causes and being genuinely interested in helping others. He’s even gone so far as to add social commentary on tough subjects such as sexual assault of women.

As of right now Anvar has not released a statement of any kind since these accusations have made the rounds and began trending on Twitter. So far the only response from anyone affiliated with the show at this point is James S.A. Corey, the creator and writer of the novels the show is based on.

What happens next is unknown. At minimum there is an assumption there should be the expectation of Anvar being questioned and responding to these allegations, or an investigation by law enforcement.
