During a talk with The Spectator, Mr. Weinstein admitted to offering young women roles for sex, a practice he described as ubiquitous in Hollywood and in the entertainment industry. Weinstein said to Taki, the reporter for the publication, that Taki was born rich, privileged, and handsome.
Whereas Mr. Weinstein was born “poor, ugly, Jewish,” and he “had to fight his entire life” to succeed. The disgraced producer explained that no women even looked at him until he created a very successful career in Hollywood.
Later in the interview, he stated, “Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone.” However, while he admitted to the transgression, Mr. Weinstein said he never forced himself on anyone, ever.
Democrats are going to miss #HarveyWeinstein and all the financial support he’s provided to them over many decades. #Weinstein has been a supporter of progressive liberal politics for decades. Isn’t it ironic that he turns out to be one of the sleaziest, creepiest perverts in the business? Many of these people posing with him knew about it and covered it up for him. Think about that for a moment. He’s hosted dozens of fundraisers, galas and events for #HillaryClinton #BarackObama #ChuckSchumer and dozens of other prominent democrats. Thanks for the memories Harvey, hope you rot in prison. ==>Double Tap and Tag your friend<== ============= Via:@unfiltered.politics
Additionally, Weinstein, while sitting with his attorney, Ben Brafman, stated Asia and Rose McGowan were lying when they claimed Asia and the Parts Unknown star, Anthony, had an open relationship.
Harvey said the claims were “obviously not true,” and that Anthony Bourdain couldn’t confirm otherwise, due to his suicide back in June. The interview with the outlet comes after Harvey turned himself into the New York Police Department precinct following charges of sexual assault and rape.
Lucia Evans, his former employee, alleges Harvey forced her to perform oral sex on him back in 2004. Another woman, who hasn’t been identified publicly yet, stated Harvey raped her after cornering her in a hotel room.
Many other women have accused Harvey Weinstein of more than 50 crimes of assault, harassment, and in some cases, even rape. However, Weinstein has “unequivocally denied” all of them outright, claiming they were consensual.
Ben Brafman stated he is confident Harvey’s name will eventually be cleared. According to Brafman, the case in question is suspicious and palpably untrue because Harvey and the anonymous woman dated for years after the supposed attack in 2013.
