Film academy expels Weinstein
Film academy expels Weinstein. The sleazy film producer was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in response to mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him.
The academy’s 54 member board of governors which includes Hollywood superstars and directors such as Tom Hanks, Whoopi Goldberg and Steven Spielberg voted “voted well in excess of the required two-thirds majority” to immediately eject Weinstein expel the sleazy Democrat donor.
In removing Weinstein from its ranks, the academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society. The Board continues to work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all Academy members will be expected to exemplify.”
The latest charge against Weinstein is from British actress Lysette Anthony who says Weinstein raped her in the 1980s..
Anthony, who currently appears in the British soap opera “Hollyoaks,” tells the Sunday Times newspaper that Weinstein attacked her after showing up at her London home. She says she was left feeling “disgusted and embarrassed.”
It was reported this week that London police were investigating a rape allegation against the producer relating to an incident in the ’80s. The city’s Metropolitan Police confirmed their investigation without identifying Weinstein by name.
Anthony is the latest of dozens of women, including actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, who’ve gone public with accusations against Harvey following recent reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker detailing misconduct claims by others. He has denied any non-consensual sexual conduct with any women. Sounds like his buddy Bill Clinton ” I did not have sex with that woman Ms. Lewinsky.”

Harvey Weinstein is obviously a Hollywood sleazeball. And it is also quite obvious that much of Hollywood including Jane Fonda knew of his activities. It is also quite clear that he was a heavy Democrat donor including campaign donations to Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton. The academy expels Weinstein is the headline of the day.
