They're all lying! That's what women do. They lie. They push, they pull, they're mad, they're hot. And when they don't get what they want, they cry rape!
~ Jackson Wright going on a misogynistic rant.

Jackson Wright is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Sorry If It Got Weird For You". He is the wealthy CEO of the dating app Mr. Wright Forever, who uses his wealth and status to sexually harass and assault his female employees.

He was portrayed by Jon Glasey, who also portrayed Jeremy Jamm in Parks and Recreation.

Biography

Early life

Wright started the dating app Mr. Wright Now with his college friend and business partner Cressida Gordon, who introduced him to his future wife, Sara. The app became incredibly successful, with over 50 million users, and Wright became very wealthy.

His success and playboy persona hid a dark side, however; behind closed doors, he was a sexually sadistic misogynist who derived pleasure from harassing and sexually abusing women. Eventually, Sara couldn't take his abuse anymore, and began making plans to divorce him. Before she could file the paperwork, however, she was killed in a car accident.

Wright used the tragedy to pick up women. One night, he tried to seduce Gordon, who rebuffed his advances; he then overpowered and raped her. Afterwards, he feigned remorse, and bought her silence by making her CFO of the company. Wright also used Sara's death to rebrand the company as Mr. Wright Forever, a feminism-friendly dating community serving as a safe alternative to hookup apps.

His own behavior did not change, however. When the app matched him with his employee (and Gordon's goddaughter) Lisa Rose, he pressured her into going out with him, and then raped her. When she texted him the next day asking him why he assaulted her, he dismissively texted back, "Sorry if it got weird for you.".

"Sorry If it Got Weird For You"

After helping to relaunch the site, Rose tries to tell Gordon about the rape, but loses her nerve when Wright appears in the office to thank them for their hard work. Later that night, Lisa goes on a date with Detective Joe Velasco of the NYPD's Special Victims Unit, whom she met on the app. She gets drunk and stumbles to her door with him, and suffers a flashback to the rape when he tries to steady her; she screams at him not to touch her before falling down her stairs. He takes her to the hospital and calls his superior, Captain Olivia Benson, suspecting that Rose has been victimized. Sure enough, Rose tells Benson about what Wright did to her.

Benson and Velasco go to Wright's house to question him, and find him with female company. Before they can ask Wright anything, however, Gordon appears on TV accusing him of raping Rose and resigning from the company, which sends its stock price plummeting. As SVU investigates Wright, he goes on the offensive, using his social media to denounce the accusation as lies concocted by Gordon in an attempt to destroy his company so she can poach his data and customers to start her own app. This revelation puts the case against Wright in jeopardy, and results in corporate espionage charges against Gordon, who attempts suicide out of despair and guilt for putting Rose in danger. Fortunately, Benson is able to resuscitate her. Benson talks with Gordon after she recovers, and Gordon tells her about Wright raping her, as well as four other women whom he had victimized after meeting them through the app.

During Wright's trial, he dismisses his accusers of simply having hard feelings after he dumped them, while his attorney Jericho Swope accuses Rose and Gordon of making up the assault to bring down Wright's company. Gordon surprises them and Assistant District Attorney Dominick Carisi Jr., who is trying the case, by telling the jury about Wright raping her, as well. Swope argues for a mistrial, but Carisi is able to convince the judge to keep the trial going. Benson pulls Carisi aside to talk to him about her conversation with Gordon.

Carisi then confronts Wright with the fact, supplied to him by Benson, that his wife had been preparing to leave him before her death. As intended, this causes Wright to lose his temper and unleash a tirade denigrating all women as lying golddiggers. The jury sees him for who he is, and finds him guilty of first-degree rape.
