A month before Bryan Singer was finally dragged out of the open sewer of accused creeps, Jessica Chastain spoke up on Twitter to remind everyone about the numerous accusations that have been made against him. Before that, she used Twitter to explain she was very well aware of the rumors of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged behavior, and called BS on everyone who said they they had no idea. Some gave it up for Jessica for calling a creep out, but not everyone in her life is on board with that.
In my world, the word of the year was “tenders,” because I moved about ten feet away from a Popeyes in January and have ordered enough spicy tenders to keep them in business. But for Dictionary.com, the word of 2017 was “complicit.” That’s a word that was used over and over again when talking about how some people within Harvey Weinstein’s circle knew about how his behavior and did nothing.
The New York Times recently published a piece about those complicit people titled Weinsten’s Complicity Machine. They attempt to explain how Harvey could be Harvey for so long inside and outside the walls of The Weinstein Company. Apparently “That’s just Harvey being Harvey” was a common phrase uttered by agents and managers in response to complaints. One such possible instance of complicity involves Lena Dunham and aides of Hillary Clinton.
Gabriel Byrne is out promoting a documentary about famed Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, so naturally he was asked about his co-star from 20 years ago, Kevin Spacey. According to The Times UK, Gabriel, who starred in 1995’s The Usual Suspects alongside Kevin, knew Kevin was a perv but had no idea that his sexually inappropriate behavior towards another young actor on the film was the cause of a 2-day production shut down.
Despite hiding out in a metaphorical gopher hole (no disrespect to gophers), Harvey Weinstein continues to make the news for gross reasons. The latest is another lawsuit. What are we up to now, one hundred? It should be one hundred. According to this lawsuit, Harvey and his brother Bob Weinstein might have broken a sex trafficking law.
There’s been many hot takes on the recent uprising of voices speaking out against powerful men in the entertainment industry. And then there’s Morrissey’s take on it all. Last week, Morrissey gave an interview to Germany’s Der Spiegel in which he defended Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey , calling the allegations “ridiculous” and victim blaming. He also shrugged off the allegations against Kevin Spacey by saying, “If you go through history, almost everyone is guilty of sleeping with minors.”
Morrissey recently returned to the well of sexual assault allegations and pumped out some more stagnant puddle thoughts.
Hope you’ve got that doomsday bunker fully stocked with canned goods, powdered rations, and the necessary porn, because Uma Thurman is ready to open her mouth and release her fury on Harvey Weinstein. Her anger just might lay waste to the planet!
