HOLLYWOOD’S TAKEDOWN OF HARVEY WEINSTEINOctober 12, 2017
It’s been an explosive week for Harvey Weinstein and his reputation after about 28 women have accused him of sexual misconduct. We can’t stress how much we applaud these women for coming forward and telling their stories.
Women from all walks of Harvey’s life including Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, Cara Delevingne and Gwyneth Paltrow, to name a few, have come forward and shared their awful stories and experiences involving Weinstein.
“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
Harvey Weinstein’s name has been taken off all TV shows he’s produced and USC has rejected his Women Filmmakers Endowment. He’s also been dismissed from his own company, The Weinstein Company leaving his brother, Bob Weinstein in charge. The Weinstein Company allegedly knew about Harvey’s pay-offs to victims since 2015.
Yesterday, Weinstein was photographed flipping off people outside his lawyers’ house and later that night, he flew to The Meadows in Arizona for sex rehabilitation and behavioral treatment. Midday, he talked to paparazzi outside his daughter’s house and said the following:
“I gotta get help guys. You know what? We all make mistakes — second chance, I hope.”
Harvey Weinstein worked with some of the biggest names, who have come forward and publicly denounce him, including Hillary Clinton who he hosted a fundraiser for, Barack Obama whose daughter, Malia, worked as an intern for the Weinstein Company, Meryl Streep, and Judi Dench.
Don’t worry, Lindsay Lohan found a way to be involved coming to Weinstein’s defense in a “post and delete” Instagram story.
Word on the street is that Jay-Z is currently looking into buying Harvey’s share in the Weinstein Company.
