Jonathan Majors, the up-and-coming actor who plays Kang the Conqueror in the MCU and recently starred in Creed III, has been arrested in New York City. The charges are “strangulation, assault and harassment.” The police responded to a 911 call from an apartment in Chelsea, a neighborhood in Manhattan. The NYPD issued a statement on the matter to The Hollywood Reporter:
“A preliminary investigation determined that a 33-year-old male was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old female,” the DCPI statement said. “The victim informed police she was assaulted. Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”
A representative for Majors released a statement as well:
“He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
Hopefully, that woman, who was injured, according to the police, is okay. I also hope that Majors is afforded the benefit of the doubt that many others aren’t anymore and that he’s allowed his day in court before Hollywood tries to destroy him.
