Harvey Weinstein sexual harrassment claims


#101

At least there are probably a load of other abusive people in positions of power absolutely shitting themselves right now.


#102

i’d like to think so but i just don’t believe it. i mean, one of them was exposed and still got elected president a month later.


#103

#104

fucking hell.


#105

fuck is wrong with people


#106

standard procedure now isn’t it? say something completely awful for attention, apologise later.


#107

I’m not sure whether it being in the Tablet (a specifically Jewish magazine), and it being written by Oppenheimer (a Jewish author) makes this weirder or not.


#108

Ah - ok, understood. There’s more than one Tablet magazine.


#109

Yeah, there’s a UK-based Catholic one:

#110

Yeah - that’s the one I’ve seen kicking around at the inlaws (they’re CofE though)


#111

It’s not that one:

Ben Affleck has condemned Weinstein, but then had to apologise for groping a teenager. Also was very handsy with another reporter and has not condemned his brother’s actions.

Wouldn’t mind ridding Hollywood of these people root and branch.


#113

The rumours were referenced in the show 30 Rock and at an awards ceremony :confused:


#114

???


#115

30 Rock touched on Cosby before it became widely known too:


#116

yeah this sort of things just makes them feel even more invincible and just confirms that they act with near impunity

fuck off the lot of them


#117

i don’t think any charges have been brought against him yet have they? obviously a lot of new people have come forward so presumably they’re building up to that.


#118

i mean my questions are rhetorical but also incredulous, fuck you america for throwing people in jail for life for a bit of hash but letting this guy run a whole city for 25+ years.


#119

in one of the links someone posted, nypd basically dropped their investigation cause he threatened to get political/high level law enforcement against them.


#120

recently?

edit:
oh this one?
