#metoo has always been weaponised

it now has an incredible amount of political currency for eliminating opponents... in the case of players, extortion may also be a factor

of course there may be some genuine claims too, but idolised current players don't really need to chase pu$$y - it comes to them

These are dangerous times to be a man, especially a less than attractive man. Ordinary flirting can now be interpreted as sexual harassment or assault on a whim and ruin someone's life. If I worked in an office now or any mixed environment I'd minimise all contact with women on a social level. Any woman I'd get intimately involved with I'd require formalised consent documents to be signed prior to any activities.

Lasith Malinga has been painted as a sexual predator as per one of the alleged victims verbal account.

As Katto says, this can easily degenerate into a smear campaign.

Whom to believe ? Who is telling the truth and who is lying ?

On the back of zero evidence, if things are being brought up after 10 or 20 years without any police complaint, it will be difficult to establish the truth.
