Harvey Weinstein was revered as an extremely powerful man in Hollywood, which is why so many people kept quiet about his slimy ways for so long. It became almost normal for women to be propositioned in exchange for them to make their way up the Hollywood ladder of fame, with ease.
However, once the lid was blown off Weinstein, the snowball is only getting bigger and faster. On Saturday, three new allegations of assault have been made.
According to The Hill:
The Washington Post reported the previously unreported allegations after conducting 67 interviews with people currently or formerly in “Weinstein’s orbit.”
Weinstein was reportedly violent toward men and women, according to The Post.
Sallie Hofmeister, Weinstein’s rep, said that Weinstein “obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of those relationships were consensual.”
She added, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”
Weinstein was expelled Saturday from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after reports of sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against the movie mogul stretching back decades.
The Academy’s board said in a statement it wants to send the message that “the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”
Weinstein has sought treatment following the multiple sexual harassment allegations, but he denied allegations of rape.
Weinstein has lost nearly everything, and his reputation has been flushed down the toilet. His response to his crimes is that “we all make mistakes.”
We do all make mistakes. However, he took those mistakes and just kinda ran with him. He made them over and over again. Seems to me that he is not sorry for his actions, but rather sorry that everyone else found out.
