As you know already by now, over fifty different women have accused Harvey Weinstein of either sexual harassment, coercion, intimidation, rape, or assault, ever since the New York Times’ and the New Yorker’s exposés hit the mainstream media.
However, one of the most descriptive accounts comes from African-American actress, Lupita Nyong’o. In an article written for the New York Times, she detailed her experiences with the now-disgraced Hollywood producer.
The actress claimed that she went to his house to watch a private screening of a film along with his family. But after it ended, he invited her into a room and lo-and-behold, it was his bedroom, where he proceeded to request a massage.
Several years later, when Lupita became more famous in the entertainment industry, Weinstein again propositioned her to which she refused. Harvey allegedly told Lupita that her “career would suffer” if she didn’t comply with his demands.

Despite her claims, Harvey has an entirely different recollection of the events that transpired between the two Hollywood workers.
He released a statement through his attorney saying, “Last year, she sent a personal invitation to Mr. Weinstein to see her in her Broadway show titled, Eclipsed.”
Although he offered a different interpretation of the events between the pair, many on social media are not buying his stories, including Rose McGowan, who said if he denies the claims he’s going to war with all of the accusers.
Additionally, people allege “racism” because Harvey only bothered to respond to the black woman’s claims rather than any of the other women. Celebrity Insider reported earlier that Rose McGowan along with Asia Argento accused Harvey of rape.
