Skip to comments.PIERS MORGAN: Spare me Hollywood’s hypocritical horror over Harvey Weinstein [TR]
Posted on 10/11/2017 9:38:49 AM PDT by EdnaMode
I spoke to Harvey Weinstein on Monday night.
'Harvey how's your life?' I asked, winning myself the Most Stupid Question of the Year Award.
He sighed loudly, paused for a second or two, then chuckled, wryly. 'My life? It's really not that great right now to be honest, Piers ' At the time, he was still fighting to save his movie mogul career, and his marriage, after the New York Times bombshell report disclosing he had paid off eight women for sexual harassment.
Weinstein asked to go off-the-record, and we talked for another minute or so before I heard urgent mutterings and he suddenly said: 'I have to go .this is a very important call I'm sorry I'll call you straight back.' He didn't call back.
Within 24 hours, a blizzard of horrific new revelations erupted in the New York Times and New Yorker magazine featuring fresh allegations against Weinstein from myriad famous and non-famous women of rape, sexual assault and harassment.
Perhaps that 'very important call' was from one of those publications, or his lawyer, who knows?
It doesn't really matter now.
As I write this, Harvey Weinstein's career is gone, his marriage is gone, and his reputation as one of the greatest, and most successful, power brokers in Hollywood history is gone too.
Fired by his own company, and dumped by his wife Georgina, beleaguered Weinstein has escaped to a sex addiction clinic somewhere in Europe. It's a staggering fall from grace, even by the brutal standards of Hollywood. Yet it's a fall that deserves not a scintilla of sympathy, given the scale of his appalling behaviour.

Piers Morgan lmao
He gets it right from time to time (like Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes).
But he will be lionized and exulted by the left as he has enhanced his 'progressive' creds by abusing women ,lying about it, a la Clinton and funneling tons of money to their party.Make no mistake about this.
Piers needs his nose punched by Jeremy Clarkson again.
Ben Affleck getting called out today on groping someone.
Weinstein isn’t the only powerful producer who has taken advantage of the casting couch.
May it all spill out.
Isn’t the woman with the shaved head in the anti-Trump video that also featured Meryl Streep none other than Rose McGowan? And Meryl never heard about Weinstein before now?
Yeah I just heard about Affleck.
Well done Piers. Every once in a while you get it right and you are spot on here.
Whoa. (Rubbing eyes) Piers Morgan defending Trump against Meryl Streep’s and Hillary Clinton’s incredible hypocrisy? Am I reading this?
Actually, outside of Gun Control, Piers is for the most part, on the mark.
“I’ve always got on very well with him and enjoyed his company, and hope he gets the treatment he clearly needs. “
Not possible. He would only have gotten THAT treatment in some 1870s Cowboy town in the American West, not in some posh “clinic” in a European Country which probably does NOT have extradition to the US, but DOES allow bank transfers to Switzerland.
Oh I get it! Piers is one of us!
What is your point?
“Harvey Weinstein has witnessed all this at first hand, and doubtless calculated that nobody in his town, and his industry, really cares about sexual harassment or abuse.
In fact, they reward, applaud and enrich people for it.
And the really dreadful part of this horrendous saga is that until now, he was right.”
Looks like Polanski, Allan and Affleck could use a trip back in time to my imaginary western American Cowtown and an invitation to a dance with a rope.
Every time I see that mentioned it brings a smile to my face.
Funny. I just did a search for that and was about to post it.
