Hollywood is speaking out after an explosive report from the New York Times detailing "decades of sexual harassment" by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The report said Weinstein "reached at least eight settlements with women" and also included a first-hand account from actress Ashley Judd of an inappropriate interaction she had with him in a hotel room in the '90s. In a lengthy statement to the Times, Weinstein admitted to some of his behavior, though attorney/advisor Lisa Bloom said "he denies many of the accusations as patently false."
According to the report, Rose McGowan received a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein in 1997 after an incident in a hotel room. The actress, who starred in Weinstein Company's original "Scream" film, didn't mention Weinstein by name but tweeted the following after the article was published:
Women fight on. And to the men out there, stand up. We need you as allies. #bebrave
Among everything else bizarre about Weinstein's statement, the implication that he could've destroyed the NRA at any time, but just wasn't facing enough sexual harassment charges to really focus, is something. https://t.co/WULvQPnpFC
