Quentin Tarantino on Harvey Weinstein: “I Knew”

In California, the Los Angeles Police Department says it’s investigating disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault. The New York Police Department and Scotland Yard are also investigating multiple reports of sexual assault by Weinstein. More than 40 women, including some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, have now come forward with allegations of rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment against Weinstein, who had been one of the most powerful men in Hollywood.

One of his closest collaborators, prominent movie director Quentin Tarantino, has now come forward to admit he knew about Weinstein’s sexual harassment but didn’t take action because he wanted to continue making films with Weinstein. Tarantino told The New York Times, “I knew enough to do more than I did. … If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”
