The fall of Harvey Weinstein is perhaps one of the fastest fall from glory in recent times. Last week, the New York Times first went public with their investigation where several women came forward and claimed sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey.
Celebrities who have looked up to the producer have come out to express their disappointment, including Meryl Streep who had once thought Weinstein a god.
After being sacked from the board, it seems Weinstein’s punishment for the alleged crimes are just starting as his wife also announced she was leaving the marriage.
Georgina Chapman announced that she was leaving her husband as he continues to face sexual harassment allegations.
“I have chosen to leave my husband.”
“Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time.”
“I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then,” he explained. “I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office—or out of it. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed.”
“I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go. That is my commitment.”
Well Harvey Weinstein might have lost a lot in a week, he has definitely won the support of Lindsay Lohan who spoke on her Instagram page defending the producer.
In two Instagram Story videos that have since been deleted, the actress decided to share her perspective on the allegations surrounding the Hollywood producer.
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don’t think it’s right what’s going on,” Lindsay explained. “I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband.”
She continued, “He’s never harmed me or did anything to me—we’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop—I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”
This however brought a lot of back lash from fans of the actress.
