Thoughts on Sylvester Stallone’s Career and other Stallone Related Commentary (Part 4 – Sexual Abuse Allegations)
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
The 1976 Rocky Movie in Light of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Sylvester Stallone
Response to Brigitte Nielsen’s (November 2017) Defense of Sylvester Stallone in Midst of Sexual Abuse Allegations
Assume or imagine that the word “alleged” appears before any discussion of abuse allegations in these posts, including this one, should you not see it.
Putting this disclaimer in here in case I forgot to stick the word “alleged” in front of each and every accusation.
I am not stating it is a fact that Stallone did abuse anyone, but it is my opinion, which is based on news reports and information on blogs (which I link to through out), that he is a serial sexual and physical abuser.

Before I discuss the sexual abuse accusations against Stallone, I wanted to explain what my original motive was for posting about him – and it wasn’t about the sexual abuse allegations.
About a month and a half ago, I sat through a Rocky movie marathon on a cable channel.
I had not really seen the first Rocky movie – well, I had, as a kid – but I was too young to fully understand everything in the movie.
My brother had rented copies of Rocky 2, 3, and 4 when I was a teenager, or possibly when I was in my 20s, but over the years, I had pretty much forgotten having seen them.
On this blog, I tend to discuss several topics on a repeated basis, some of which deal with dreams, goals, obstacles in life, where and how to find inspiration when life doesn’t seem to be going how you want it to, and so on.
When I saw the ads for the upcoming Rocky movie marathon on TV a few weeks ago, I thought to myself,
“I never really did see all of part 1, and I didn’t understand all of what I saw when I was a kid. This movie is supposed to be inspirational, so maybe I should watch it and then write a blog post about it.”
After I watched the movie – now, as an adult – and some of its sequels – I had a better understanding of why so many did find the movies uplifting.
I was prepared to write a blog post or two about it, including a review of the Rocky series.
Then these sexual abuse allegations from 1986 against Stallone resurfaced, so I did some more internet research, where I found other women had made other, similar accusations against Stallone.
I believe the allegations against Stallone.
I believe, after having read several news sources, that Stallone is, or has been, regularly abusive towards women, that he repeatedly sexually, physically, and emotionally abused his now-deceased half-sister Toni Ann Filiti (also known as Toni D’Alto), and that he is (or was at one time) a serial sexual predator whose favorite target group were girls ages 13 to 17.
I have much more to say about all that as I continue this post, but I wanted to say how terribly disappointed I was to discover all this.
