Oh, how far the Holier-Than-Thou’s in Hollywood have fallen. Those elitist paradigms of virtue, who live to give each other awards and talk down to the commoners in middle America, are not used to having their sins exposed to the world. Finally, however, a story about one of their own broke and the truth is FINALLY coming out.
Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been fired from his own company after details of many years of sexual harassment. It seems as if most of hollywood has some ties and praise for this dirty man and evidence of one hollwood actress referring to him as “God” at the Golden Globes in 2012 has us asking a big question.
Streep has been very vocal over President Trump and the words he has used, but will she now step up to this disgusting man, Weinstein, for his decades of sexual abuse or will she defend him?

Here is the answer….after the news had surfaced, a statement was released by Meryl Streep through Yashar Ali at The Huffington Post posted her statement:
“The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported. The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes.
One thing can be clarified. Not everybody knew. Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally. I didn’t know about these other offenses: I did not know about his financial settlements with actresses and colleagues; I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts. And If everybody knew, I don’t believe that all the investigative reporters in the entertainment and the hard news media would have neglected for decades to write about it.
The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar. Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game.”
