HAR­VEY WE­IN­STEIN SCAN­DAL

Vocable (All English) - - Dessin -

Hol­ly­wood has been rocked by al­le­ga­tions against movie mogul Har­vey We­in­stein, the fa­mous co-founder of the We­in­stein Com­pany. At least 30 women have come for­ward to claim they were sex­u­ally as­saulted or ha­rassed by the pro­ducer, in­clud­ing ac­tresses Gwyneth Pal­trow, An­gelina Jolie, Cara Delev­ingne, Léa Sey­doux, Kate Beck­in­sale, Rosanna Ar­quette…. Four days af­ter the story broke in The New York Times, Har­vey We­in­stein was sacked by the board of his com­pany. He ac­knowl­edged his be­hav­ior had caused “a lot of pain” but de­nied al­le­ga­tions of rape. Many com­men­ta­tors say that We­in­stein’s mis­con­duct was Hol­ly­wood’s “open se­cret.” “Ev­ery­one could see what he was do­ing,” Léa Sey­doux wrote in The Guardian. “That's the most dis­gust­ing thing. Ev­ery­one knew what Har­vey was up to and no one did any­thing.”
