Like a lot of “elites” he’s shown no remorse.

Yeah what is strange is this!

If a women went to see the local doctor complaining of a headache .. the doctor asks her to sit on his couch then whilst sat there he kind of gets her tits out starts sucking them and puts his hand up her skirt!

Wouldn't that women immediately call the police??


If a women asks an electrician to come put some new wiring in and whilst he is doing the wiring she decided to go to bed for a few hours and whilst the electrician was there he decided to also get in her bed and give her a good rodgering!

Wouldn't that women immediately call the police ??


I think half these women were no more than prostituting themselves to move up the ladder .. principles often go when you want some thing bad enough..If some one had reported him years back he would of long gone..

The guy has been doing all this for years and years and Not one women immediately called the police ??

You should read some of the women’s depositions and also the history of this monster.

He had a whole apparatus in place to discredit and ostracize any woman who complained. It took incredible courage for these women to come forward. All together over 100 women made formal complaints.

Don’t minimize their efforts with your usual jokes.  :coffeeread:

This is not "new news".  The "casting couch" has been in Hollywood a LONG time.  Especially when the movie moguls ruled the silver screen during the beginning of cinema.  Studio heads got away with a lot of stuff for over a century.  Blame it all on Thomas Edison and his  Kinetograph.

I get your point but the doctor and electrician in your story isn't offering a job, fame, and millions of dollars to sign the woman up for a film. Some people shut up so they can keep their job or get that promotion. Shame also keeps them quiet.

This phenomenon is not restricted to the movie industry.  People employed in mundane jobs can also be coerced this way.

Assault does not qualify for capital punishment.  No one lost their lives. However, you will note that bribery/corruption could result in getting executed in certain countries and no one got hurt in a physical manner.  :biggrin:

I agree. I don’t buy that you wait 10 or 20 years to make a complaint.

I think most of those women made a free choice in an exchange of value situation.

True, but this was more than assault. It's exploiting humans. Says a lot about Weinstein's character. I like sex as much as the next guy but I want it with a willing female. Weinstein wants it with unwilling females. Weinstein will not get capital punishment but somebody may stick a broom handle in his ass to show him what it feels like.

More than likely he will die in prison.

Hopefully the next Hollywood jerk will think twice about raping women looking for a job.

BULLSHIT ..

I SERIOUSLY hope a loved one of yours is never sexually assaulted ..given your 'viewpoint' - you'll be the LAST person they could hope for comfort from ..



I have listened to the recollections of some of the ladies and they felt helpless and alone .,, The boss invites you into his suite .. he is married .. he wants to talk work and building your career ..   

He abused his status..


There were examples of Hollywood actresses who did say 'no' and how it was put about they were 'difficult' - and found it hard to get work .. Ashley Judd is a case in point..

Yes he may be a monster.. Im not saying he is anything more... But naaaaaaaa 20 years to wait to make a complaint! It is not normal it all comes down to one thing only and that is your "principles" For example if it had been my Mother she would of called the police and made a complaint that very day "F**** the being discredited or anything" principles principles !! In all those years not one women put her principles first? No fame and fortune always came first ..

I never said that it did.  But try to retroactively convict all of the big studio heads from the early 20th century.   :duh:  Weinstein was probably hoping to be included in the annals of cinema history as one of the major figures of the silver screen.   :king: tiphat :popcorn:
