The Wild Wiki West of Roman Polanski


Ranking somewhere near the bottom of Roman Polanski's current troubles, you'll find his oft-vandalized, recently unlocked Wikipedia article. According to reports this morning, a torrent of revisionists, slanderers and other haters besieged the entry with less-than-official tweaks. Among the most recent found in a browse by Movieline: "First Paedo to be arrested after 30 years," "Polanski is a sicko," and "Roman Raymond Polanski (born August 18, 1933) is a Polish-French rapist currently under arrest in Switzerland." Tough crowd! Assuming Debra Winger's not busy after fest-jurying and petition-circulating in Zurich, maybe she can keep an eye on things at the site. [The Telegraph via Hollywood Elsewhere]
