During a game of ‘F**k, Marry, Kill’ on her podcast, Corinne Olympios went on a rant about none other than Meryl Streep! Her three options were Whoopi Goldberg, Wanda Sykes, and Meryl and seeing that she did not even hesitate before blasting the legendary actress.
‘I am definitely going to kill Meryl Streep. Meryl Streep. She supported Harvey Weinstein! She was, she knew about it. She knew about everything going on and lied about it twice. She lied about it twice though… And then she went back on her word. It is messed up. It’s messed up. I am gonna kill you, Meryl,’ the model and reality TV star justified her choice.
As you may remember, Weinstein’s lawyer used an older statement of Streep’s that was taken out of context to prove he was not abusive towards her on sets or towards any of the actresses he’s ever worked with, for that matter.
But the actress was quick to argue that ‘Harvey Weinstein’s attorney’s use of my statement — that he was never sexually transgressive or physically abusive in our business relationship — as evidence he was not abusive to many OTHER women is pathetic and exploitative.’
She went on to make it as clear as possible that she thinks the man should be held responsible for his many horrible crimes, regardless of his skills in the industry.
‘The criminal actions he’s accused of conducting on the bodies of these women are his responsibility, and if there’s any justice left in the system, he’ll pay for them — regardless of how many good movies, made by many good people, Harvey was lucky enough to have acquired or financed.’
Following her response to the scandal, Weinstein’s attorney decided to apologize for using her words like that.
But even so, it looks like Olympios is still holding Meryl accountable for what she said.
