“What is this case about? Power, manipulation and abuse? Or is it about the wanton lack of human empathy, which most of us possess but is absent in others?” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi said in the closing arguments of the Harvey Weinstein trial.
She added that Weinstein sees himself as “the master of his universe, and the witnesses here were really ants who he could step on without consequences.”
Two liberal lions – Harvey Weinstein and Michael Avenatti – will soon learn their fates from juries of their peers but most have already rendered a verdict.
As did Seal, who just destroyed Oprah and other Hollywood hypocrites for turning a blind eye to Harvey for years.
From Business Insider:
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Seal accused Oprah Winfrey of knowing about Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior towards young women “for decades” and doing nothing about it.
“Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into.
My bad,” the singer said in the post, which accompanied a meme of Winfrey and Weinstein.
“When you have been part of the problem for decades, but suddenly they all think you are the solution,” the meme says, over photos of the two at events, one with Winfrey kissing Weinstein’s cheek.
He concluded with the hashtag “#SanctimoniousHollywood.”
When the allegations of Weinstein’s history of sexual abuse and harassment came to light in late 2017, Winfrey posted on her Facebook, saying, “I’ve been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein’s hideous behavior and haven’t been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation.”
