This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
These are some serious accusations.
Twin Peaks cult actor Michael J. Anderson fired some deplorable shots at series creator David Lynch on his Facebook profile photo last week.
In the caption, the actor claimed — by inversely stating the following did "NOT" happen — that the esteemed filmmaker raped his daughter Jennifer Lynch and threatened her with death if she ever told what happened.
"He totally did NOT rape his own underage daughter and then write a television series about it. She totally has NOT lived under a DEATH THREAT from her own father, all her life if she ever told. He NEVER had his "best friend" murdered. And he DEFINITELY NEVER suggested to me that I should kill myself! There's a whole bunch of other stuff he never did either."
"I just heard about [these accusations]. I am sorry that Mike is doing this. None of what he says is true, and I hope he receives the help and peace he needs."
In the past, Anderson has been publicly frustrated by not being cast in the Twin Peaks reboot, reportedly over salary disagreements — but based on this post, the 62-year-old is clearly trying to drag Lynch's reputation down with him.
We hope the actor gets the help he needs.
Do YOU think there's any merit to these audacious claims??
