A California Jury Found Harvey Weinstein Guilty On Three Charges Of Sexual Assault
The sequel to Harvey Weinstein’s own personal #MeToo movement, #WaitMeAgain?, premiered on Monday when Harvey was found guilty on three charges of rape and sexual assault in a Los Angeles courtroom where he was on what they call in the business, a “trial vacation.” In the summer of 2021, Harvey was compelled to travel from his jail cell in New York, where has been serving 23 years for rape and sexual assault in that state, to a jail cell in California to stand trial against seven charges of sexual assault. While the accommodations offered to him during his stay in California may not have been what he would have chosen, they were comped through the government’s Frequent Felon program, so take any reviews he may have left on AirBnA.gov with a grain of salt.

According to Deadline, veteran defendants Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein, and consequences newcomers, former Scientologist Paul Haggis and current Scientologist Danny Masterson will each have their day/s in court this fall.
R. Kelly Has Been Sentenced To 30 Years In Prison
Just four years ago, Robert Sylvester Kelly was bragging that it was too late to prosecute him for any alleged crimes because, not only was he adored by “40 billion motherfuckers,” but they “should have did this shit thirty years ago” before his music had “been injected into the world.” Speaking of lethal injections, Robert won’t be administered one for the crimes of racketeering and sex trafficking that he was convicted of last September in New York. However, according to Page Six, he will be serving a 30-year sentence for them. Oopsie daisy! Turns out it wasn’t too late to #MuteRKelly after all. Today, Robert was sentenced to serve 30 years for one count of racketeering and eight counts of violating the Mann Act which “prohibits the transport of ‘any woman or girl across state lines for any ‘immoral purpose’.” Thanks to vaccines and the dozens of brave women (45 witnesses testified!) who came forward to share their experiences, 40 billion motherfuckers have been cured!
The UK Has Charged Harvey Weinstein With 2 Counts Of Sexual Assault As He Tries To Sue Chrysler For His Back Problems
Bi-coastal jailbird Harvey Weinstein just added an international destination to his bucket list of places to wither away and die in. CNN reports that the United Kingdom has charged Harvey with 2 counts of indecent assault that allegedly took place in London back in 1996. And wouldn’t you know it, Harvey’s back is acting up again. The New York Post reports that Harvey has filed a $5 million lawsuit against Chrysler, the maker of the Jeep he drove into a tree back in August of 2019. $5 million should go a long way to help fortify Harvey’s quickly dwindling war chest. If he wins, receives the full sum, and, given the full docket his lawyers already have, when the case might be settled and depending on the exchange rate at that time, Harvey could be sitting pretty with enough money on his books for 2 or 3 boxes of Milk Duds. Adjusted for inflation of course. So maybe one gently sat upon dud. Aww, he should name it Harvey Jr. Mint!
Harvey Weinstein Got Busted With Contraband Milk Duds In The Pokey
Finally, some happy news for a change! And on a Friday too, what won’t the Universe do?! You’ll be delighted to learn that convicted rapist Harvey Weinsten got himself into a spot of bother in LA County jail last November when a box of contraband Milk Duds was discovered during a search of his cell following a visit from one of his attorneys. As you may recall, Harvey was extradited to Los Angeles last summer to stand trial on 11 additional charges of rape and sexual assault. He’s currently serving a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault in New York. According to Variety, Harvey is very sorry about the Milk Duds, if not for all the rape and sexual assault. Personally, hearing that a man who once felt so entitled and powerful that he could have sex with any woman he wanted, by force and coercion, can longer even enjoy the simple succor of plump sugary deer pellet without reprimand, is a real treat. Actual justice comes hard in this country, but poetic justice is sometimes just as sweet.
Kevin Smith Says Harvey Weinstein Pulled “Good Will Hunting” Out Of Theaters Early To Mess With Robin Williams’ Money
Kevin Smith just did an interview with The Daily Beast to promote his new book, “Kevin Smith’s Secret Stash.” Now, before you click away out of overwhelming disinterest, Kevin did drop some interesting tidbits. He reveals that Harvey Weinstein pulled Good Will Hunting (1997) out of theaters early so star Robin Williams would get less money. Kevin, who was an executive producer on the film, explains that Miramax made a high-percentage first-dollar gross deal with Robin, aka a “movie-star deal.” The more money Good Will Hunting made in theaters, the bigger Robin’s split with the studio would be. So Harvey pulled the movie while it was still making big bucks and put it on video where “the split wasn’t Robin-heavy.” And I guess stars/screenwriters Matt Damon and Ben Affleck weren’t too pissed off, cuz they proceeded to work with Harvey approximately 12,000 more times.
