It amazes me that this somehow turned into a political argument...

It's ridiculous. Some morons want to pretend like rapist is a political affiliation, so they can Hate Hillary a little more.

Amazing how Weinstein tries to claim the victim hood, Cosby and all these people that have done this can’t see the pain they caused for so many women.

No. Cosby raped his victims after drugging them. Weinstein asked them to sleep with him in return for movie roles.

So did Weinstein. Ask Uma Thurman. He tried to off her in a jeep with faulty brakes.

Political persuasion has nothing to do with sexual assault.

It shouldn’t, but liberals are always the ones preaching to everyone about their moral values and how people should emulate and be like them because theIr conduct is what you want to strive to be and attack everyone that’s not like them, but when they get caught for doing the same thing, they attack the very people on the issues they get so annoyed with.

Hypocrites.

Weinstein, Polanski, both disgusting leftists.

Whatever happend to the old casting couch where women gave themselves willingly knowing quite well that that was what they needed to do to get a start. Quid Pro Quo?

No. Weinstein raped the women. Cosby's accusers clearly stated they knew what they were taking. Also, they went and met him alone in his hotel room and he also promised to help make them stars. The two cases seem almost identical. The main difference between how people seem to be viewing everything is racially.

Ah, the poor guy, looking so pitiful with his walker. He was then spotted shopping without it, walking around with ease. "Surprising" that he would resort to such deceit...

In other news, Weinstein also claimed to have coined the term "casting couch."

@Andrew Crip

Most of the charges against Weinstein will be dropped or dismissed, the defence has text and email messages between him and these "victims", most if not all these women slept with him as a career move, once their careers faltered and Weinstein didn't save them he was ditched.

He gave plenty of opportunity to women, as long as they let him have his way with them first! The jerk probably actually believes he's a good guy in this whole affair!

Nice attempt at garnering sympathy with the zimmer frame.

Weinstein also groped more women against their will than many men have ever done!

No get rid of that Zimmer!

I feel like the forgotten man. I made more movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker and I'm talking about 30 years ago.

Is this supposed to somehow pardon him for being a sexual predator? Also, just imagine how many of those women you may have preyed upon as well.

History is filled with evil men that also do good things. Doesn't make their actions any less evil.
