As more (and more) revelations come out about slimeball and (alleged) serial rapist Harvey Weinstein, there is a more sinister conspiracy still hidden in the Hollywood hills: pedophilia.
It seems that, for a decade and more, courage was in short supply in Hollywood, as dozens (maybe hundreds) of people knew of Harvey’s predilections (for starlets) and did absolutely nothing. It has now been reported that as far back as 2004, the N.Y. Times was aware of at least some of the extent of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse and, one suspects for political reasons, decided to spike a story that would have exposed and possibly put a stop to his deviancy. How many women were sexually assaulted or even raped between 2004 and today? It’s been reported that Matt Damon and Russell Crowe were part of a group that pressured the Times not to report on these salacious activities. Are they, in part, culpable for subsequent assaults? How about all of the dozens of Miramax employees and others who sent young women to Harvey to be exploited and abused?
Sadly, Harvey Weinstein’s act isn’t the darkest in Hollywood’s repertoire – at least that we know of. As has been reported, the women Harvey sexually abused were adults. But did Harvey rape or sexually abuse any minors? Corey Feldman? Corey Haim? Drew Barrymore? The Olsen twins? more here
