Rus­sia gives thumbs up to We­in­stein

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

FALLEN movie mogul Har­vey We­in­stein has found some un­likely de­fend­ers – in RUS­SIA!

The sex- pest pro­ducer, who faces a string of ac­cu­sa­tions from ac­tresses and would- be star­lets, has been shunned by Tin­sel­town.

But the 65- year- old ( above) has found sup­port in Moscow.

Rus­sian telly has broad­cast crit­i­cism of the West­ern fo­cus on sex­ual ha­rass­ment – and some of the crit­ics show lit­tle or no sym­pa­thy for the women in­volved.

Dmitry Kise­lyov, a ma­jor player in the Krem­lin’s me­dia ma­chine and who hosts a Sun­day news show, asked his view­ers: “What did they ex­pect?

“They went up to a man’s ho­tel room on their own, with­out com­pul­sion.”

Mean­while Ren TV showed a graphic of the “ideal” man fit to be the next US pres­i­dent, who is “limb­less so he can’t touch women, a mute so he can’t make sala­cious jokes and blind so he can’t leer at them las­civ­i­ously.” – Harry Hill
