Actress Whitney Moore has publicly accused writer Max Landis of doing ‘horrific, inhumane things’ to her during their relationship.
Moore, 29, did not elaborate on what Landis, also 29, did but the tweet she posted on Tuesday was damning, nonetheless.
Of the who is the son of director, screenwriter, actor, and producer John Landis, she said: ‘I’m sorry I ever made him seem safe by my association with him, even peripherally,’ adding: ‘But let me be clear: he is not a safe person to be around.’
DailyMail.com left a message seeking comment from Landis with his entertainment attorney Howard Abramson, which was not immediately returned.

With the screenshot, Moore wrote, ‘a dam has been broken,’ and opened up about what it was like for her to date Landis.
‘I never thought I would say anything publicly about the things Max Landis did to me because I believed that forgiveness was the correct way to heal,’ Moore said.
‘I even defended him, for so long, because I truly believed he was getting better and that the ways he tortured me was isolated to our relationship. I thought there was no point in sharing the horrific, inhumane things he did to me because publicly condemning someone who is working on themselves is unproductive.
‘Now I know that this was a lie; he never got any better. He hid behind his friendship with me and several other good people so he could continue hurting people behind closed doors and not be questioned.’

Moore promised in the tweet to share more specifics about what she said she endured at the hands of Landis, at a later date.
‘I have more to say, and will be doing so anonymously because the things he did to me are too humiliating for me to feel ok having my name attached to them, and I never want a person associating him with me EVER,’ she said.
It’s not clear what prompted Moore’s post, but Anna Akana, who was part of Landis’s YouTube film, Wresting Isn’t Wrestling, retweeted Moore’s post and then tweeted herself, ‘Believe women.’
