I worked w/ Harvey WeinsteinIf on a script I sold to Miramax. (I’m waiting to hear if an article I wrote is going to be published. Until then I’ll make this brief. Well, brief-sh) Hollywood rumours are like high school; many are based on jealousy & hate. I had NO idea Harvey was the scumbag he is. Most in Hollywood didn’t know and it’s very unfair to paint this w/ a broad brush. Most thought whatever sex he was having was consensual. We just heard from many brave women who were abused, as well some men condemning Harvey’s actions. But I want to hear from Harvey’s inner circle; those insiders who had to know, those who helped set “meetings”. Harvey is a beyond a sick, twisted and deeply disturbed man. NOT making excuses for him, there are none. But the inner circle that knew- they’re complicate. I don’t know who knew but had whomever did spoke out decades ago Harvey might have gotten help sooner, for sure many women abused by him would not have been.
If you don’t know why so many women don’t come out and/or wait until it’s somewhat safe you’re an IDIOT! Women (victims) that come out can lose their job and have virtually no one believes them. They are abused again and again; by the police, the court system, the press, the public, etc. It's systemic rape that women are put through while the criminals (man or men) too often go un-abused & unpunished. Or when they are punished, the sentence is a fucking joke. Sadly, the entertainment business is NO DIFFERENT than any other business when it comes to the sexual harassment of women. Entertainment & politics are just more high profile than most so when someone gets caught it’s big news. But this happens every day, all day long, to women and girls of all ages. Sadly none of this is surprising when we live in a world where religion treats women as property, a county announces women can drive - in 2017 - is news, and our president is a sexual predator. This issue needs to be dealt with NOW. By both women & men/the left & right NOW @jk_rowling @lenadunham @SarahKSilverman @MileyCyrus @Beyonce
I don't in any way condone #harveyweinstein of @weinsteinco antics and behaviors towards women but @mikabrzezinski reaction, towards an already in place book deal, is ridiculous. Her opinion is this...unless #harveyweinstein resigns from @weinsteinco (where her publishing deal is housed) she will pull her own three-book deal . Here's the facts @mikabrzezinski, unlike those facts seen on #fakenewscnn, #harveyweinstein is done in Hollywood. Even if one were to consider the fact that Hollywood is so open to acceptance of others who openly do wrong to women, cough cough @bill_.clinton, #harveyweinstein and his reign in moviemaking is over. #bobweinstein will undeniably take over the reigns of @weinsteinco but given his inability to properly handle the genre arm of @miramax / @weinsteinco genre label @dimensionfilms (which saw it becoming nothing more than a modern day #vidamarkentertainment), its only a question of how long @weinsteinco will even last? Either way the studio will sustain in some form with the likes of another, more stable, mini-major coming along and buying @weinsteinco just for its vast library of titles. It'd be a great buy for @universalpictures or @sonypictures if I may say so The future of @weinsteinco publishing outfit #weinsteinbooks and its pact through major publisher @hachettebooks could pose even more questions but again, all will be determined in due time. If anything be smart, keep the book deal through Harvey's publishing outfit because I'm reality these are the types of book deals that come that often. #theweinsteincompany#harveyweinstein#bobweinstein#mikabrzezinski#fakenewscnn#foxnews#foxnewsfacts
“Morning Joe’s” @mikabrzezinski and her BBC host bff @kattykayofficial are total friendship and #ladyboss goals. They recently spoke to Moneyish about being women in President Trump’s America and negotiating while avoiding the b-tch label. Link in bio. : Anthony J. Scutro for MSNBC
