Streep: We­in­stein be­hav­ior is ‘in­ex­cus­able’

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - KICKOFF -

Meryl Streep has weighed in on the Har­vey We­in­stein sex­ual ha­rass­ment al­le­ga­tions, call­ing the news “dis­grace­ful” and cham­pi­oning the women who came for­ward as “he­roes.”

In a state­ment Mon­day to the Huff­in­g­ton Post, Streep chas­tised the man she once re­ferred to as “God” dur­ing her 2012 Os­car ac­cep­tance speech for “The Iron Lady.”

But Streep was also quick to dis­avow any prior knowl­edge of We­in­stein’s al­leged bad be­hav­ior, ac­knowl­edg­ing that to her he was only ever “ex­as­per­at­ing but re­spect­ful.”

“The be­hav­ior is in­ex­cus­able, but the abuse of power fa­mil­iar,” Streep said. “Each brave voice that is raised, heard and cred­ited by our watch­dog me­dia will ul­ti­mately change the game.”
