We­in­stein should be in jail, says Sharon Stone

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

ctor Sharon Stone hopes that Hol­ly­wood pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein, who is ac­cused of all kinds of sex­ual of­fence, from ha­rass­ment to rape, goes to jail.

How­ever, Stone says that all men ac­cused of sex­ual mis­be­haviour should not share the same fate. “In ev­ery crime, there are mis­de­meanours and felonies, and I think if some­one’s com­mit­ted a mis­de­meanour they can’t be treated like they have com­mit­ted a felony. You can’t charge some­one for mur­der when they have got a park­ing ticket,” she says.

Her sen­ti­ments are the same as that of ac­tor Matt Da­mon, who was crit­i­cised by #Metoo cam­paign­ers for say­ing there is a “dif­fer­ence be­tween pat­ting some­one on the butt and rape or child molesta­tion”.

Stone con­demns We­in­stein, say­ing, “I hope he goes to jail” and calls the dis­graced pro­ducer “coarse, mean, vi­o­lent and abu­sive”.
