Famed Actor Guilty

(RightIsRight.co) – Justice has been served, and The Avengers have to find a new bad guy to clash with now that the acclaimed actor who recently appeared in the Disney+ series Loki season 2 has been convicted of assaulting his former girlfriend following a two-week trial in Manhattan.

The jury found Jonathan Majors, 34, guilty of assault and harassment while acquitting him of another assault charge and aggravated harassment. The incident occurred last March during a dispute in Manhattan.

Grace Jabbari, a 30-year-old British dancer, testified that Majors caused her excruciating pain, alleging that he struck her, twisted her arm, and fractured her finger. Majors’ defense argued that Jabbari was the aggressor, driven by jealousy, and accused her of fabricating the story.

This conviction represents a significant setback for Majors, who was poised for major success in Hollywood, including a key role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the new main antagonist, Kang The Conqueror, succeeding Thanos (Josh Brolin) as the new big ‘baddie’ in the MCU.

The repercussions of his arrest and subsequent trial have been extensive, affecting his career prospects and resulting in the delay of his film, “Magazine Dreams.”

During the trial, Majors maintained a calm demeanor, often accompanied by his current girlfriend, actress Meagan Good. His attorney, Priya Chaudhry, portrayed him as a victim of deceit and manipulation, highlighting instances where Majors attempted to flee from confrontations.

Prosecutors, however, presented a different picture, accusing Majors of a pattern of abusive behavior. They cited text messages and audio recordings to support their case, portraying Majors as controlling and abusive. Security footage presented in court showed a physical altercation between Majors and Jabbari.

Majors chose not to testify, but his defense emphasized that Jabbari’s actions following the incident, including going to a dance club and using Majors’ credit card, were inconsistent with her allegations.

The trial’s conclusion saw Majors convicted of charges that carry serious implications for his personal and professional life. His sentencing is scheduled for February 6. The case has drawn attention to the complex and often contentious nature of domestic violence cases, especially those involving high-profile individuals.
