"I'm guessing successful sociopaths like him who get away with it for years are very, very careful not to let the kind of men who would stop them dead cold ever get a glimpse of who they really are," he wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.
Michael Moore, who worked with Harvey Weinstein on his 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, is breaking his silence on the disgraced mogul since separate reports from the New York Times and The New Yorker broke, detailing allegations of sexual harassment and rape against him. Dozens of women have since come forward with similar claims.
The director slammed Weinstein in a post on his Facebook page on Friday, writing, "Harvey Weinstein knew better than to behave inappropriately toward women in my presence. I'm guessing successful sociopaths like him who get away with it for years are very, very careful not to let the kind of men who would stop them dead cold ever get a glimpse of who they really are."
Praising the Times report, Moore said he believes right now "is a profound cultural/social/political moment that I believe could actually ignite a historic change in our society."
The filmmaker also laid out suggestions on how to change Hollywood, including [putting] all abusers on notice NOW," and urged other abusers to "avoid this cruel end by resigning now." He also implored men "who do treat women as equals and behave toward them with respect and dignity" to "step forward, calling on boards of directors at other studios and across corporate America to "declare gender parity the new priority."

What took Fat Man so long?
He and his disgusting kind jumped all over Trump for being a nanosecond late after Charlottesville.
How about a world without Michaels???
Pig on pig.
Moore might have been just like Weinstein if Moore had not been so fat and disgusting that no woman would have anything to do with him, even to save her career.
I’m betting Moore has done the same.
Java can so say this because no amount of money or role would persuade a woman to go near lardo.
And Mikey never, ever had a clue.
Agreed. And thankfully he only does “documentaries” so actors didn’t have to work with him.
I doubt any women get near enough to Moore for him to abuse them in the first place.
Exactly. It was an “open secret” and everyone knew. Except some of those closest to him.
Moore looks like the stereotypical greesy fat perve...?
Kind acts like one personality wise,too.
Not saying he is...just comes across that way.
What a bunch of claptrap. Satan loves Hollywood and donates some flesh upon occasion to keep the heat off so to speak.
If these women were cheese burgers Michael Moore would have been all over them.
I don’t even want to think what he may have done......Yewwwww!
Actually Harvey Weinstein is one of the best people to work with in this town. #funfactneverreported
Weinstein is a fat, ugly pig...inside and out.
This whole thing is a set up. Breathless reports about NYPD, FBI, Scotland Yard are investigating HW! Really, why? Where is the accuser and the complaint? In a few days, maybe a week or two, some woman is going to claim Trump stuck his tongue down her throat and bought her some furniture and gave her a job or some crap. All the same people that are dumping on HW will turn their scorn to Trump, you wait. Weinstein was photographed down in Arizona having dinner with friends. He’s not worried about any investigations because he knows there isn’t one. BTW, when do we get to hear about the women that said yes to his advances and starred in big time movies?
