Video Proving Hollywood Knew About Weinstein and Itself
Hollywood must be careful when cutting ties with Harvey Weinstein.
They expose themselves as hypocrites. But there are quite a few more dirty nukes yet to go off.
Over the next year, we will find out much more about Weinstein. However, the big reveals will come with all who knew and did nothing. Take Seth MacFarlane for instance. He knew of Harvey Weinstein’s antics, and this was the best he could do at the time.
Now suddenly he’s grown a pair of balls. Here is a comment he made about Weinstein a mere 6 years later.
The clip above was MacFarlane’s definition of a “hard swing”.
He implies that these women no longer have to sleep their way to the top? MacFarlane has an interesting way of throwing a shot over the bow for Harvey. As I said earlier, it only took 6 more years before people got the joke.
I suggest to Hollywood starlets, don’t bring Seth MacFarlane with you to a fight, unless it’s a sissy fight.
There are many other things MacFarlane could have done. For example, he could have spoken up about it. Why did he not pick a fight with Weinstein? For the same reason he and other Hollyweirdos are not picking a fight with the many other sexual predators lurking in Hollywood.
Like the Afflecks.
Ben Affleck recently apologized for grabbing a woman’s breast on camera.
I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize

And then the update:
He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack.

As I have written, the culture of Hollywood is that women will do anything to become stars. And thanks to the Women’s Movement, many think little of themselves and indeed allow men like Affleck and others to indulge.
Their sisters must deal with the fallout.
And that’s what happened when a couple of women met Casey Affleck:
In 2010, two women who had worked on Affleck’s experimental film I’m Still Here filed sexual harassment suits against him. One of the women claimed that Affleck crawled into bed with her without her consent while she was asleep. He allegedly pressured the other woman to stay in his hotel room and “violently grabbed [her] arm in an effort to intimidate her into staying” when she refused, according to the complaint.
The women claimed he verbally disparaged them and directed a subordinate to expose himself to one of them, among other types of misconduct. They also said that Affleck and the film’s star, Joaquin Phoenix, locked themselves in the women’s shared hotel room with two other women, allegedly to have sex with them. The full complaints are available here and here.
The claims were settled out of court.
Affleck was sued for $2 million by one woman and $2.25 million by the other. Both cases were settled out of court for an undisclosed amount in 2010.
