When Jian Ghomeshi was fired after some allegations of sexual violence, he defended his actions vociferously.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Ghomeshi claimed the CBC was firing him only based on information he willingly shared with them, and that there were no formal complaints.
His $55 million lawsuit said pretty much the same thing.

In fact, Ghomeshi's entire defense seems based on the idea that his accusers must not be legit because they're choosing to remain anonymous.
Well, that isn't true anymore.
One woman has come forward, and her name is Lucy DeCoutere. If that name is familiar to you, it may be because Lucy plays the character Lucy on the hit show Trailer Park Boys.
The actress says she met Ghomeshi in 2003 at the Banff television festival. After a date, she went back to his house where they began making out.
But then Ghomeshi turned violent, choking and slapping her. She said:
"He did not ask if I was into it. It was never a question. It was shocking to me."
She says she left in a taxi shortly afterward and did not continue seeing Ghomeshi.
According to The Star, this brings the total of women accusing Ghomeshi of violence to EIGHT.
