BREAKING: Harrassin’ Harvey Gets Booted From The Weinstein Company
Democrat Party mega-donor, Hollywood power player, dear friend of the Clintons and all-around loathsome Jabba The Hutt-esque predator creep Harvey Weinstein was fired by The Weinstein Company on Sunday by the company’s board of directors.
Weinstein founded the company in 2005 after leaving Miramax.

On Thursday, the New York Times, in an article titled “Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades,” New York Times reported:
Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview.
“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Ms. Judd said she remembers thinking.
In 2014, Mr. Weinstein invited Emily Nestor, who had worked just one day as a temporary employee, to the same hotel and made another offer: If she accepted his sexual advances, he would boost her career, according to accounts she provided to colleagues who sent them to Weinstein Company executives. The following year, once again at the Peninsula, a female assistant said Mr. Weinstein badgered her into giving him a massage while he was naked, leaving her “crying and very distraught,” wrote a colleague, Lauren O’Connor, in a searing memo asserting sexual harassment and other misconduct by their boss.
“There is a toxic environment for women at this company,” Ms. O’Connor said in the letter, addressed to several executives at the company run by Mr. Weinstein.
The article continued at length along those lines and can be accessed here.
The Twitterverse has been EXPLODING in the short period of time since Weinstein’s firing, (not exactly with much sympathy for Harrassin’ Harvey!):
Harvey Weinstein got fired from "The Weinstein Company"…It's now just called "The Company"

Only because the story made it into the news. Up to that point the good old boys and girls at the company knew all about it but didn't act.
