I do not know all the women who have come forward per the New York Times piece on Harvey Weinstein and I am not a fan of many of them, in many ways, especially of their politics (I am certain they are not too fond of me or mine as well!). But I applaud their courage to come forward and support them all 100%. Most of us in the entertainment business have heard of these disgusting stories for years about these scumbag heads of studios, record labels, Fortune 500 companies, etc and how they prey on young women and men, especially in Hollywood, where most show up with stars in their eyes and are viewed / treated as nothing more than a toy by many of these assholes. I do not want to condemn all - I know there are good people in Hollywood, but I do condemn a great deal of these folks, especially the ones who know about this stuff first hand and have stayed silent for so many years or turned a blind eye. It is no secret Hollywood has a don’t ask, don’t tell policy if you wanna work, and the same goes for their views and opinions of how this country and the world should work. The public knows at this point that these people also have big time publicists and lawyers who can sway the narrative, but the majority of us Americans do not buy your bullshit anymore. Best of luck to you victims and know that even though we do not see eye to eye on most things, folks like me still support, care and admire your courage to speak out. I hope Harvey gets the help he seeks, but I do not buy any of it at this point as I believe he is only going down this path because he cannot cover his own shit up any longer.
Why even comment on this and put my own neck out there in a fight that's not mine?
For my granddaughter, my sisters, my mother, my fiancé, but mostly for the people who have no voice. And I am also not beholden or scared of anyone!
Once again, I support you ladies and I am sure you will not be the last to come forward now that the dam has burst. I do wish for the most positive outcomes for all involved and for some real change in this disgusting space.
