Nothing sticks in my throat so much, as Hypocrisy. Exactly that, such hypocrisy we have all been reading about, since the stories broke about Harvey Weinstein.
Today we have to read about Kate Winslet and all the garbage she has come out with, where were these people when they hid the truth of Weinstein. Take for example Meryl Streep, she may be a great actress but she is such a bloody hypocrite. She praised Weinstein openly by calling him “God”, now he is just the opposite. Please don’t tell us Streep that you knew nothing about the man when you uttered those words, you most certainly did. Hollywood is a small place and everyone knows what goes on and where and with whom. Streep took the gifts that Weinstein lavished on her, went to his parties was entertained by him, and now she is shocked, oh shut up streep and the rest of them.
When Roman Polanski raped or was it “had sex with an underaged girl, who by the way agreed to it, or did not, but whose mother may have or not” these are the stories Polanski and co put out just some of the stories. Jack Nicholson walked into the room and saw what happened, by all accounts he watched and laughed. Angelica Houston walked into the room, saw the young girl with Polanski, and what he was doing, did she stop it, did she say anything, like hell she did. It’s ok for Polanski to rape or have sex with an underaged girl, but what Weinstein did is wrong – surely both are wrong.
Emma Thompson rightly condemns Weinstein, but she defends Roman Polanski, she called working with Polanski “a great honour”, really. So its ok to work with a Director who is not allowed into America because he has Rape charges against him, charges that concern an underaged girl, but she condems Weinstein. Is there a difference between these two men. One is now a predator and the other a Director “its an honour to work with”.
Then we have Woody Allen with all the charges he once faced, and all those of his friends that defend him, and turn a blind eye, they find it acceptable as to what he did.
We have one big arsehole, that we here in the UK were delighted to get rid of, he ended up in America, where he was adored and we all choked when we heard how popular this t….r was in America. Until that is at the weekend, he being James Corden opened his big fat mouth and now gets exactly what he deserves. Thanks America for taking this piece of s..t from us here in the UK, we hope you will keep him. He made jokes about his GOOD FRIEND, HARVEY WEINSTEIN, good friend is that how you treat a good friend? Well Corden made his jokes about Weinstein and the women and what he did and all hell has broken loose. Corden’s PR will rightly now be in overdrive trying to make him look good again. Good again, really? Will America and in particular all these women who knew and endured Weinstein, accept all Corden’s snivelling apologies. Whatever you do America do not send that piece of s..t Corden back to the UK.
Are women so mealy mouthed these days, the answer is NO. These women kept quiet, I don’t believe them. If they thought more about a so called film career and MONEY than protecting their body from filth like Weinstein, I feel very little sympathy for these women. The majority of women, myself included believe it or not, have been in situations when the man puts you in a difficult situation. You shout, you kick them where it hurts, you make sure you talk about it. You just don’t if you have any respect for yourself sell your body to a powerful man for him to do what he wants with the possibility of an acting part for the woman thrown in.
Can anyone please tell me is there any difference between Weinstein and the filthy Jimmy Savile we had here, I refer to him touching up young girls on his show, along with all the other famous people mentioned here. This is not new news from Hollywood, its always been the same, its just that now we have social media and although its taken years in some cases for some of the women to come forward, the news as they say “is out there”. What does surprise me, someone as powerful as Angelina Jolie who was thick here with David Cameron’s Government, and other World Leaders, she never said a word??
We have Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, George Clooney and how many others who have befriended Weinstein worked with him, now all of a sudden they are put into a position that they must condemn him. They socialized with this man took whatever was going now Weinstein publicly is no longer a friend. Weinstein is not the only one who has done this, will the names and reputations of all the others be revealed? There were women that had to tolerate what Weinstein did exposing himself, I have sympathy for them. But, there are those he propositioned and how many of those women took what he offered and now complain. As for Weinstein, don’t think much of the Wife “when money flies out of the window love goes out of the door”, she took all she could from him, now leaves him. She knew all about him, everything, as President Harry Truman famously said “the buck stops here”, her first thought was herself not her children.
This is a story that will run for quite sometime, expect more well known names and not so well known to appear in the papers condemning Weinstein and all he did. Whilst the Press are out for stories why don’t they come up with condemnation for the Wife beaters ie Johnny Depp for one, those that have been addicted to sex Michael Douglas for one, those that take whatever drugs they can and the names are endless.
Weinstein is just a name that wielded his power for his own gratification and those that took every job, every gift going.
