Dozens of Women Slam Weinstein: “He Will Be Remembered as a Sexual Predator”

HeadlineDec 18, 2019

Dozens of women have shot back at disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s complaint that his effort to promote women in Hollywood has been overshadowed by over 100 accusations of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment against him. In an interview with the New York Post ahead of his first rape trial in Manhattan, Weinstein complained that he was a “forgotten man,” and claimed he should be remembered for providing opportunities to women actors and directors. In response, a group of 23 women, including top actresses, responded in a statement saying, “[Weinstein] says in a new interview he doesn’t want to be forgotten. Well, he won’t be. He will be remembered as a sexual predator and an unrepentant abuser who took everything and deserves nothing.”
