Harvey Weinstein finds himself knee deep in a heap of his own sh*t after many major news outlets reported numerous sexual assault/harassment allegations directed towards the famed Hollywood producer. On October 5, 2017, The New York Times reported that Weinstein had been paying off his sexual harassment accusers. Actress Ashley Judd, who is one of Weinstein’s accusers, referred to the producer’s behavior as “coercive bargaining,” as he may hurt or help your career based upon sexual favors.
Nearly eighty women have came forward with allegations against Weinstein, ranging from sexual assault, harassment, and rape. In total, 57 women are speaking out against Weinstein.
Back in 2013, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane cracked a joke about Weinstein’s sexual nature, allegedly targeting mostly Hollywood actresses for various sexual favors. In the video, MacFarlane introduces the nominees for Best Supporting Actress at the 85th annual Academy Awards. After the intro, he says, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.
It appears as if Weinstein’s unwanted sexual advances has been a running joke in Hollywood for years and years and years…
Even Hillary “Hilldog” Clinton has something to say about Harvey’s allegations. She said that she had no idea about his alleged behavior/actions. She once considered him “a friend” and claims that news about Weinstein made her “sick.” Weinstein supported Hillary’s run for president in 2008 and 2016. He donated $46,350 to the Clinton Foundation in 2016. Hillary has promised that she will donate all the Weinstein-related contributions to charity. I wonder if that charity is also the Clinton Foundation.
