Are we finally done with Jian?

Are we finally done with Jian?


Nov 25, 2014

Are we done? Is he gone?

Sure looks that way. Just over a month after being fired by CBC, it looks like we’re actually done with Jian Ghomeshi. At least for now.

Facebook

I’m not sure when it happened, but Jian’s Facebook page and his infamous post is now gone. Luckily, the internet forgets anything. How sad does this post look now:

Twitter

At one point, Jian had more than 100,000 followers. Now? Not a one.

Lawsuit:

Today came news that his lawsuit against the CBC has been withdrawn and has been ordered by the courts to pay $18,000 legal fees. Roughly the salary of a CBC employee.

So what’s next?

I honestly have no idea. I can’t think of a time when a Canadian went through something like this. Does he recover? Can he recover? I’ve said it before, but if this was another country, maybe below the 49th parralell Jian would likely end up on another network for a short-lived series. But in Canada? I don’t know if can come back, especially since he still has acknowledged the abuse, let alone apologized for it.

So what’s next? Man, I wish I knew! I’m so fascinated to see what the next few years looks for Jian. Has there ever been a bigger fall from grace? Is there any way you’d forgive him? Big questions and likely fewer answers still to come.

  1. Thank you for every other informative website. Where else may I get that type of info written in such an ideal method? I have a mission that I am just now running on, and I have been on the look out for such info.
