Alex Williamson – also known as Shooter Williamson – has been dropped by his management team in light of yesterday’s vile rant in relation to allegations made by an ex-partner.
PEDESTRIAN.TV can confirm that an email was sent to the talent roster of More Talent this morning, stating that the company would be terminating its working relationship with the 32-year-old performer effective immediately.
In the email, a leaked copy of which was provided to P.TV, More Talent director Andrew Taylor asserted that Williamson’s responses to the allegations, which were made in a series of vile and profane Instagram Story videos, were “completely inappropriate” and “unacceptable,” and that “we do not and cannot be seen to condone behaviour such as is alleged, nor the tone or content of his responses.”
Taylor has since confirmed directly to P.TV that “in light of recent unacceptable events, More Talent have terminated our relationship with Alex Williamson.”
Williamson’s artist profile has already been removed from More Talent’s website.
The move follows yesterday’s dramatic escalation of events, in which Williamson’s ex partner, singer and social media personality Peach PRC, accused Williamson of “abusive, manipulative, and predatory” behaviour in a lengthy social media post.
“I didn’t speak up loud enough last time and still carry so much guilt that it lead to someone else being hurt. And I won’t watch it happen again… I am not scared of you Alex. Your empty threats are pathetic and I won’t be silenced anymore,” Peach’s statement read.
In response, Alex Williamson launched into a lengthy and at times unpublishable rant against Peach, asserting, in part, “I’ve addressed this now, I don’t need to address it any further… You take one look at fuckin’ old Peachy you know what’s going on,” and “I’m confused as to where the predatory thing is coming from. What even is the accusation?… If it’s the predatory thing, it’s false. Also, I was 29 at the time. What’s the problem with trying to find a 19-year-old?”
Williamson also addressed another ex-partner, who has not spoken out at any point during this entire saga, stating “Girls, you wanted me, girls. I’m a fuckin’, I’m a loveable character. I don’t blame you for throwin’ yourselves [at me],” and “Fuckin’ hell, fuck off you bitches.”
At this stage, Williamson is still scheduled to perform as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival at the Factory Theatre on May 14th and 15th.
