in ones quest for power,
one must be careful not to get drunk on it.
harvey weinstein must be a raging alcoholic then.
he should have known he had no true loyalty.
folks seemed to have been waiting for his downfall.
i ain’t never seen a take down of a snow jackal of this magnitude.
in his current journey towards being a pariah,
they have allegedly ousted him from the academy.
this is what “the huffington post” had to say…
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expelled Harvey Weinstein after holding an emergency meeting on Saturday to discuss the onslaught of sexual harassment and assault allegations directed at the Hollywood mogul.
The Academy’s Board of Governors voted “well in excess of the required two-thirds majority to immediately expel” Weinstein from the prestigious organization, the academy said in a statement to HuffPost.
The board said it dismissed Weinstein, once a powerful film executive, in order to send a message to the rest of the industry. It also accused those within the Hollywood community of “willful ignorance and complicity.”
“The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors met today to discuss the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, and has voted well in excess of the required two-thirds majority to immediately expel him from the Academy.
We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.
What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society. The Board continues to work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all Academy members will be expected to exemplify.”
Earlier this week, the group described the accusations against Weinstein as “repugnant, abhorrent, and antithetical to the high standards of the Academy and the creative community it represents.”
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts suspended Weinstein’s membership Wednesday, saying his behavior was “completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA’s values.”
“We hope this announcement sends a clear message that such behaviour has absolutely no place in our industry,” the BAFTA statement said.
Hollywood is also moving to dissociate itself with projects tied to Weinstein that are currently in the works. Disney announced Wednesday that it removed him as a producer on the upcoming “Artemis Fowl” film.
the ones he allegedly blacklisted must have exhaled.
let this be a lesson to the assholes out here.
and attentionistos everywhere.
it doesn’t matter what you buy,
the degrees you accumulate,
the connections you have,
the position you carry,
and even the social media presence you get.
if you do evil things,
and your heart isn’t pure,
none of that matters when a bounty is on your head.
i believe in karma tho.
he got what was coming to him…
…and he keeps paying for his sins with new allegations every day.
allegedly trapping vixens in hotel rooms?
i’m disgusted this went about so long.
those who sucked/fucked him recently for roles/connections…
