Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

Now everyone has an excuse to hate this man. First it was it was fans of Asian Cinema fans as he cut a lot of Jackie Chan & Jet Li movies to shreds (Harvey Scissorhands) & those that hated how he seemingly bought Best Pictures for Shakespeare in Love & the Artist

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times


Gloria Allred throws her own daughter under the bus for defending Weinstein


Quote:
“Had I been asked by Mr. Weinstein to represent him, I would have declined, because I do not represent individuals accused of sex harassment,” Allred said a statement Thursday released just after a bombshell New York Times story had settled at least eight cases of sexual harassment spanning decades.

“I only represent those who allege that they are victims of sexual harassment,” she added.
Lisa Bloom is offering a he‘s-turned-over-a-new-leaf defense of Weinstein and seemed tp forget whose side she was on and admit Weinstein’s conduct represented illegal sexual harassment:



Quote:
“This is a real pattern over 30 years. This is like textbook sexual harassment,” Mr. Stephanopoulos said.

“It’s gross, yeah,” Ms. Bloom replied.

“It’s illegal,” Mr. Stephanopoulos said.

“Yes. You know, I agree,” Ms. Bloom said. “See, you have to understand that, yes, I’m here as his adviser. I’m not defending him in any sexual harassment cases — there aren’t any sexual harassment cases. I’m working with a guy who has behaved badly over the years, who is genuinely remorseful, who says, you know, ‘I have caused a lot of pain.’ ”

Hmmm. Maybe we should be looking at 30 Rock jokes a little closer.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

Just saw where Trump and other alt-right loons are accusing Colbert and Kimmel etc of ignoring this story due to lefty media bias.

Mentioned this story to 3 people on Thursday, only one knew who HW was.

Watched ABC national news on Friday night where story was covered. Girl-friend's family did not know who HW was.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

So now I have images of Harry Knowles grinding on women and Harvey Weinstein masturbating into a potted plant burned into my mind's eye.

ENOUGH ALREADY!

Us movie people have a hard time remembering that most people don't care who Harvey Weinstein is. In the same way I can't name an NFL player (Michael Vick? haha), or who sings the current 'top 40' music.

Most people don't care about movies. People go see a movie and don't care who made it. It just doesn't matter to most people.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

Back in the 80s, I knew a young woman who was sexually propositioned by a prominent (and married) politician, with the offer of career help in return.

In her own mind, she was more "this is what the world is like" than outraged.

When she told her story to a room full of people, the overall response was "what do you expect?" and even the women dismissed the incident as no big deal because after she said no, he left her alone.

That was 30 years ago.

Times have changed a lot, but how much?

One year ago, Trump (either confessing or lying) bragged about committing sexual assault on women, and millions of people dismissed it as no big deal.

When a big fat slob proposes to take a shower while a beautiful woman watches, it certainly strikes the weird and gross chord, but have we truly reached a consensus that powerful men using their position to solicit sex from women is not just "the way the world works" and what women "should expect to deal with"?

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

You take these A type Alpha male personalities with money and power I'm sure woman are always around. In politics, JFK and Clinton both notorious womanizers. More than one woman made claims that Clinton was aggressive and didn't take no for an answer. If I was married to Hillary I'd be looking for some intern poontang myself so I don't blame him for looking. In business Trump was obviously very aggressive as was Schwarzenegger. Look at Kobe. Cosby I put in another category since he used drugs. Locally we have a college professor in charge of a research dept. accused of coercion of students and faculty demanding sex in exchange for grades and choice research gigs.

These people live in a different world than we do. With money and power they are used to people kissing their ass all the time. Eventually they are corrupted by all that power. Women don't have to put up with it, but they shouldn't be surprised by it either.

But really? Weinstein called Hayley Atwell a fat pig? Buddy, look in the mirror. She can put an apple in her mouth and lay across my table any time she wants.

If you're talking about stuff with Billy Bush, that was many years ago, not one year ago.

I wonder if the practice of trying to buy Oscars will subside now that Harvey’s out?

I wonder if some up and coming production companies will try and swoop in and poach some of The Weinstein’s staples, like Tarantino.

I never liked Harvey so I am glad that he is finally starting to pay for being such a disgusting person.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

A local female radio host here in LA said she personally knew of 2 famous actresses who slept with Harvey and who are now big names because of it. We all know this shit is more common that not in Hollywood where the Power and Position of who you know and blow is EVERYTHING. Same with Bill Cosby, I've long said there are probably a few actresses out there who slept with Cosby and are a now enjoying a career. They are also staying silent about things they knew about Cosby in terms of his abusive dealings with women.

Hopefully, but doubtful. What a ridiculous practice that is.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

What films did Asia Argento do for Miramax? Bourdain's already spoken out against Weinstein and those that knew... I'd imagine he's gonna flip his shit now.
