In the wake of The Weinstein Company’s bankruptcy filing, there is a long line of folks who were owed money and are now left holding the bag. Sadly, that bag was only designed to hold ten pounds but is now bursting forth with 200 pounds of Harvey Weinstein‘s kale pesto and artisanal kombucha rehab shits. Deadline reports that the list of creditors owed money by TWC is a real doozy and includes a lot of expected names, like Quentin Tarantino, and more than a few head scratchers, like Malia Obama.
According to Deadline:
Some of the thousands of names on the 394-page list of people owed money by the bankrupt company jump off the page, among them David Bowie, Michael Bay, Malia Obama, Boris Becker, Ryan Coogler, Daniel Radcliffe, Robert De Niro and Darlene Love.
Malia is owed money because she worked as an intern at TWC last year which Deadline says was before the toxic Harvey sludge had oozed its way all the way out onto the streets and into the media. Zoe Brock, one of Harvey’s accusers, is also listed as a creditor and I am so mad for her.
Of course it’s not all famous people and women who Harvey did wrong on the list. There’s also regular businesses on there including “An Office Depot in Cincinnati” which is the name of my loose adaptation of Glengarry Glen Ross and “an exterminator in Brooklyn”. Just think, if that exterminator had been paid properly, maybe Harvey would have been gassed out like the cockroach he is years ago!
