Who is Harvey Weinstein ? A Sleazy Pervert Film Producer
Hollywood has been rocked by allegations against film mogul Harvey Weinstein – which first came to light in a New York Times article.
Since then, the story has developed continuously, with a large number of women coming forward to say they were sexually harassed or assaulted by Weinstein – allegations he has denied.
Several Hollywood A-listers have been accused of sexual harassment or assault since the initial Harvey Weinstein story broke a month ago. Here’s how the accusations have unfolded.
Since the New York Times and The New Yorker first published allegations of sexual harassment and rape against Harvey Weinstein by Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and dozens of others, the disgraced producer has been fired from his company and Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance is reportedly seeking an indictment against him.
A new report from Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker also details Weinstein’s alleged and elaborate efforts to silence journalists and accusers. The former movie executive denies the new accusations and “any allegations of non-consensual sex,” but said in a statement to the Times that, “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it.”
