Coronavirus is even more disgusting than we thought. Because not only did it reportedly get close to the extra chunky shit stain known as Harvey Weinstein, but it got inside of him. Gonorrhea and syphilis are probably looking at coronavirus like, “Ewww, what a nasty piece of trash, you are. Even we would never get near that!”
68-year-old Harvey was sentenced to 23 years in the clink less than two weeks ago, and immediately after the judge sentenced him, he complained about chest pains again and was taken to Bellevue, where he had a stent put in earlier this month. Sources tell the Niagara Gazette that Harvey tested positive for corona yesterday, and is currently in isolation at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo, NY. Officials reportedly believe Harvey caught corona at Rikers Island. Page Six co-signs everything that the Niagara Gazette reported, saying they heard the same thing from their source. TMZ confirms it too. The state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision refused to say if Harvey has coronavirus or not, but did confirm that two inmates at Wende have it.
The state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision wouldn’t confirm or deny Weinstein’s condition, citing federal health-care privacy law, but said that two inmates at Wende had the coronavirus.
38 inmates within the New York City jail system, which includes Rikers, have tested positive for corona. So yeah, corona being in the prison system is not good.
Harvey’s rep, lawyer, and prison consultant tell Variety that they know nothing about this, so they cannot confirm that he has it. A source also tells them that Harvey has been in isolation but it’s not because of corona.
When asked if Weinstein has tested positive for COVID-19, Weinstein’s prison consultant replied: “No one on the legal defense team has been told this. Period.” He added, “We cannot confirm that, nor care to comment on speculation.”
An additional source close to Weinstein tells Variety he learned about the news by reading the report, and had not learned of the information himself, so he could not confirm whether Weinstein has coronavirus. The source said he believes Weinstein has been in isolation since he arrived to prison, but not because of coronavirus concerns. “Just getting him oriented in where he was,” the source said, adding that Weinstein is situated in a medical wing.
When I first read this headline, I immediately conjured up a scene where Ole’ STUNT QUEEN Harv promised to pay off a prison doctor to say he’s got corona to really make sure that’ll never end up in general population and will be put in a prison suite of his own. But then again, maybe this is coronavirus’ way of trying to get some good PR for once.
