It has been a tough week for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. New allegations have popped up that make it look like he was involved in way more than just producing movies. As it turns out, he has been sexually harassing women for many many years. Some of the allegations date back decades. And yet, even after all of the allegations against him, liberals will still take all of his money for their campaigns.
It is funny, because whenever these allegations are against a Fox News host, they are instantly true and the person behind them is a criminal. But when it happens to one of their own, they are much less likely to accept it as the truth. This is the double standard that we have been seeing throughout the mainstream media.
But he finally got some bad news and deservedly so. The Weinstein Company, so aptly named after him, has terminated him from his employment.
“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar – have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,” the company’s board of representatives said in a statement given to reporters on Sunday.
For his part, he released the following statement on the allegations against him.
“I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then. I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office – or out of it. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed. I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it…”
This is a sad excuse for an apology. “It was the culture.” In fact, this is more of an excuse than an apology. Given the allegations, he might want to start being a little bit more sincere.
