Hollywood producer and now the center of a sexual assault scandal, Harvey Weinstein, recently gave Planned Parenthood 100k at their 100th anniversary gala.
News of Weinstein’s donation and alleged support for women’s rights have received heat after the Weinstein Company fired him on Sunday following a New York Times story that came out accusing him of sexual harassment.
Weinstein and his wife attended the abortion giant’s gala in New York City and gave $100,000 dollars to the organization along with countless other celebrities who gave generously according to Newsbusters. Weinstein bought the highest priced ticket – tickets sold for a minimum of $125 and maximum of $100,000 – which adds ammunition to the claim that Weinstein did not walk the way he talked.
Liberals are now also professing outrage that they took dirty money from Weinstein, despite the fact that many Hollywood compatriots were aware of what had been transpiring since 2013.
The New Yorker published a second piece with allegations of sexual assault by three more women, and now audio has been released of Weinstein harassing one of his victims. Actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have come forward saying they were also sexually harassed by Weinstein when they were starting their careers in Hollywood.
Actor George Clooney, who worked with Weinstein for 20 years, said he never witnessed the studio head’s history of sexual harassment, but admitted that he had heard rumors. Clooney said that looking at things now it’s clear that there were warning signs, but he never would have thought that Weinstein was abusing women and then paying them to keep quiet.
