Weinstein is now in the middle of a sexual harassment scandal, which has led to him being fired by his own company, The Weinstein Company. Even actress Meryl Streep, who once sang his praises in an award speech, is now speaking out against him. Other Hollywood A-listers have also denounced him, including Judi Dench, George Clooney, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, and Emma Thompson. The claims were originally reported in The New York Times, and Weinstein responded by apologizing for causing “a lot of pain.” He explained his actions by saying it was because of the the “‘60s and ‘70s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then.” He added, “I so respect all women, and regret what happened.” However, he later disputed the article, saying that the reports were “saturated with false and defamatory statements.”
Some celebrities have even claimed that rumors about Weinstein’S activities were “everywhere.” Jessica Chastain went public on Twitter and said, “To deny that is to create an environment for it to happen again.” Mark Ruffalo tweeted that Weinstein actions were “a disgusting abuse of power and horrible.” Some of the other celebrities who have commented about the incidents include Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Nathan Lane, Glenn Close, Rose McGowan, Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon, and more.
