In light of the numerous sexual misconduct allegations springing up in Hollywood you can now check which of your favorite TV shows and movies are connected to alleged sexual predators through the new database, Rotten Apples. 

The database functions as a search engine where you can enter the title of a TV show or movie and see if anyone involved in the project, including cast-members, screenwriters, executive producers or directors, have been accused of sexual misconduct.

“The goal of this site is to further drive awareness of just how pervasive sexual misconduct in film and television is and to help make ethical media consumption easier. By no means is this site meant to serve as a condemnation of an entire project.This database is not perfect, nor are the results meant to be taken as fact. Each link is sourced from an existing article and is not a reflection of our own opinions,” the website reads.

A search for TV shows “House of Cards” and “Transparent” come up “rotten apples” for the allegations against their stars Kevin Spacey and Jeffrey Tambor. Search for old classics like “Rear Window” and the site reminds you of the allegations against acclaimed filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. The film “Good Will Hunting” lists actors Ben and Casey Affleck and producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein for their sexual misconduct allegations.

Projects with no known alleged sexual abusers that have earned a “fresh apples” rating include films like ‘Moonlight” and Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight.”
