This A- list mostly television actor from a very hit network show tried to do a little damage control after the fact by publishing an open letter about how he is a vision of support for a certain person.
The thing is though, even after the letter, he still bailed when it mattered most.
It made him look worse than just standing pat and doing nothing.

Sterling K. Brown Supports Olivia Munn On ‘Predator’ Sex Offender Complaints
This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown has added his sympathy and voice to Olivia Munn’s outcry at having to work with a registered sex offender on 20th Century Fox’s The Predator.
Brown tweeted in response to Munn’s statements that she was isolated after complaining about working with Steven Wilder Striegel, who shared a scene in The Predator with her. Striegel previously served six months in jail in 2010 after pleading guilty to risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer.
The scene with Munn and Wilder has subsequently been cut from 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Predator. Fox claimed it was unaware of his background and director Shane Black apologized for the casting, saying he “chose to help a friend,” later claiming he was misled by Streigel’s characterization of his illegal actions.- Source
‘Predator’ cast responds: Olivia Munn says she was shunned for calling out sex offender
Olivia Munn says she’s getting the cold shoulder from “The Predator” cast after flagging 20th Century Fox that an actor in the reboot of the franchise is a registered sex offender.
The news resulted in Fox cutting a scene from the film with actor Steven Wilder Striegel, who pleaded guilty in 2010 for trying to entice a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship on the Internet. (Striegel is a longtime friend of “The Predator” director Shane Black)
“Our studio was not aware of Mr. Striegel’s background when he was hired,” Fox told The Associated Press on Thursday just hours before the sci-fi movie premiered at Toronto International Film Festival. “Several weeks ago, when the studio learned the details, his one scene in the film was removed within 24 hours.”
Munn – who plays scientist Casey Bracket in the movie, which arrives in theaters on Sept. 14 – tweeted that audiences will love it “now that the scene is deleted,” in light of the #MeToo and Time’s Up era.
Munn, 38, has continued to promote “The Predator” since blowing the whistle on Striegel, but her fellow cast members haven’t been supportive. During a scheduled interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Munn said her co-stars bailed on her, with the exception of 11-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay.
“It’s a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast,” Munn told THR. “I do feel like I’ve been treated by some people that I’m the one who went to jail or I’m the one that put this guy on set.”- Source
