Harvey Weinstein Has Been Sexually Assaulting Women For Years

Harvey Weinstein, co-founder of the production-and-distribution companies Miramax and the Weinstein Company. These companies are responsible for movies such as “The King’s Speech,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “The Crying Game,” “The English Patient,” “Django Unchained,” “Kill Bill,” and more.

In Hollywood, Harvey is the guy people treat as royalty. But that should not the case, he’s been accused of sexual assault by multiple women.

For more than twenty years, Weinstein has also been trailed by rumors of sexual harassment and assault. Just recently, there has been an escalating number of claims of sexual harassment against the disgraced movie mogul.

Two decades ago, Harvey invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Ashley was directed to go to his room, where he allegedly was in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower.

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Ashley Judd said she remembers thinking.

There were also reports by Filipino-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez,  where Weinstein was caught on tape in a police sting operation. She went to New York police because of a prior encounter in Harvey Weinstein’s office when she said he lunged at her, groping her breasts, and tried to put a hand up her skirt.

In the audio from the sting operation, you can hear Ambra Battilana Gutierrez ask Harvey Weinstein why he had touched her breast the previous evening. Harvey answered “I’m used to that. Come on. Please.” He added: “Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.”

A few days after the New York Times’ report on Harvey Weinstein, the New Yorker has published an investigation by Ronan Farrow that includes more allegations and systematic intimidation and serial sexual harassment and assault by Harvey Weinstein.
