Weinstein Speaks: "We All Make Mistakes"

Tyler Durden's picture

"I got to get help," began Harvey Weinstein in his first public response since multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct, adding rather nonchalantly that "we all make mistakes."

As The Hill reports, Weinstein spoke to reporters on Wednesday as he entered an SUV parked outside his daughter’s Los Angeles home...

“Guys, I’m not doing OK, but I’m trying,”

 

“A second chance, I hope,” Weinstein, 65, added.

As a reminder (if you've been living under a rock), the Hollywood mogul and mega-Democratic fundraiser was booted from The Weinstein Co., the film studio he co-founded, on Sunday after a bombshell report from The New York Times disclosing the sexual harassment allegations from several women.

In another exposé published Tuesday in The New Yorker, three women alleged Weinstein had raped them.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rosanna Arquette, Rose McGowan, Cara Delevigne, Mira Sorvino, and Ashley Judd are just a few of Hollywood’s leading women who have gone on the record saying Weinstein made unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances toward them.

Earlier this week, Weinstein denied all allegations of non-consensual sex and making any retaliatory moves against women who refused his advances.

“Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual," a statement from his representative to The New Yorker said.

 

"Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance."

Sure why not...

Going to Europe...to get help and learn how to treat women?

lol

Is he attending the DSK School for Wayward Men?

Once or twice is a mistake.  A history of this behaviour is a pattern of illegality.  Off to jail with you and Hillary.

Harvey will find acceptance in Europe. 

Europeans are much more hip to the philandering scene.

Just ask Princess Diana, Michelle Obama, Anne Sinclair, Heidi Klum, etc.

We all make mistakes?   yes.   Multiple felonious sex crimes aren't mistakes.   They are evil criminal acts that only someone with soul cancer would commit.   Trying to act like raping a teenage girl is the same as parking in a handicap parking spot is only further proof this guy needs to be put in an electric chair.

If you rely on MSNBC for your news you would know nothing about this

Harvey Rapestein is going to rape rehab. He'll have to stand up and say
"My name is Harvey Rapestein. I'm a rapeoholic. I've been clean and rape-free for two days."

"We All Make Mistakes"

..over and over and over again…for over 30 years… 

It has nothing to do with my being an arrogant, heartless, psychopathic misogynist S.O.B..

"But I'm trying" (to get out from under this).

How about 20 to 25 years in jail like every other rapist.  Rehab?  Jail now!!!

FatTony7915726's picture

I just read in the National Post (CDN paper) that the payoffs took the form of fake book deals which, presumably Weinstein claimed as business expenses on his income tax. That's how he goes to jail - tax fraud. Just like Al Capone.

Infinite QE's picture

Could be in the form of buying an option to buy their book. After x days defined in the option, it would expire.

The only thing he is sorry about is that he got caught.

He is right, we all make mistakes.  Like letting a pig dominate our film industry.  Let's stop making that mistake.

WE get a second chance now.  To hell with Harvey.

ATM's picture

He's going to the same rehab that helped Roman Polanski. Weinstein is not ever coming back because he is going to have to face charges.

Eventually we will hear the crows of the sick motherfuckers to let hm come back, because he's an artist and is realy, really sorry for raping all those girls or making them watch him jack off in the shower.

He's a sick demented fuck who needs to have his nards cut off and shoved down his throat until he chokes to death on them.

The point is that Weinstein has been able to do this for decades because out of the dozens of people who undoubtedly knew about it not one, NOT EVEN ONE, said or did anything, because they knew that if they did they would be, at best, ignored, or worse, pilloried and destroyed.

What this affair tells us about hollywood, about the way our country operates, is far more important than what happens to pervie Weinstein.   Weinstein is  no worse than the pizza munching crowd in DC or the coke snorting fraudsters on Wall Street.   These are the movers and shakers in our society.   These are the people in charge.   Doesn't it give you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside to know how wonderful the US is?

“My name is Harvey, and I’m a rape-oholic. I can’t live withot rape-ohol! Waaaaaaaa!”

TheDude1224's picture

I'm curious as to which Harvey was worse. I still think it was the hurricane, but only by a small margin.

JimmyJones's picture

Second Chance? are you kidding you scumbag, More investigation is needed, who knew, who covered up, who else is involved, did he ever hang with Epstein, 20 bucks says this is just the tip of the ice berg.  Now how is that Lasvegas shooting story going? Still unraveling?  Does the Mainstream media want to comment on that?  Why are the Dems suddenly not calling to ban guns anymore?

waspwench's picture

Weinstein is not even attempting to deny any of the allegations so someone, somewhere, must have proof that would stand  up in court.

And what is this "going to rehab" crap?   You commit crimes and you go to rehab?   I committed murder and now I'm going to rehab.   I robbed a bank and now I am going to rehab.   This isn't an AA meeting, and it is not a victimless crime, so how can he be permitted to go to rehab?   Well, he can't if there is rule of law in the US.   If Weinstein doesn't go to jail we will know that there are different laws for "them" and for the rest of us.   Oh, but we already knew that didn't we:  Corzine, Hillary, & etc.

Hollywood is a cess pit.   DC is a cesspit.   Wall street is a cess pit.   This is the US: a country ruled by and for a small, unimaginably corrupt elite.   They are few, we are many, why are we putting up with this?

What about all the people that tried to get this out there years ago and were squashed...  their careers and lives destroyed.  What about them?

Manthong's picture

 

That’ll teach them for trying to do the job of the press properly…

They should have realized that the traditional media is owned and controlled by elite totalitarian psychopaths in banker, corporate, entertainment and political power circles and they will not tolerate criticism or the exposure of their degenerate behavior and misdeeds to the general public.

..as all the while the perverts in the entertainment business chip away at the moral fiber of the country.

pschopaths cennot change - they just learn how to pretend they are changing. 

one of the first psychopath tricks is to try to make others feel sorry for them: 

"Please don't tell! - Don't embarass me! " becomes ..."I need HELP!"

No wonder Hollywood movies are so painfully boring to watch - psychopaths and prostitutes only have so many interesting stories to tell

Tell us who the pedos are, Harvey, and we'll make a deal.

Look at her after she made Barry switch seats...

Apparently, she felt that a memorial service isn't the best place for her husband to get his freak on.

That's incredibly funny shit. She makes the "most powerful man in the world" switch seats because "she" is jealous. LO-fucking-L.

This perv is hoping to welcome a new slew of underaged actors for private auditions as soon as he's feeling better.

Weinstein Speaks: "We All Make Mistakes"

My response: No Harvey, what you and your friends did was NOT A MISTAKE, it was an abomination in the eyes of the GOD of the BIBLE.

Your next stop: HELL where it is HOT, DARK and FOREVER!!! Enjoy you life on this planet now, because your eternity is looking pretty bleak!

America is so utterly messed up it is beyond belief. Think about it: People around Harvey (like the OBAMAs) knew what this DESPOT with a REPROBATE MIND was doing and SAID NOTHING!!

Harvey Weinstein: You may want to watch the video titled SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD! https://youtu.be/rI5qCFksA7Y

The SHAME, the SHAME. No wonder people are pissing on the AMERICAN FLAG!

He's going to convert to Islam.  Those virgins are the best hope he has of ever getting laid again.

"I made a mistake" = I GOT CAUGHT (& I'm mostly sorry for just being caught)

I'm sure Jimmy Kimmel (host of next years OSCARS cermony) will use the stage time to rip WEINSTEIN a new asshole instead of Trump like he did last year.

 

I can't wait to see the stupid looks on the faces of all the Hollywood dirtbag prostitutes who have cashed Weinsteins checks for the past 20 years as the camera pans around the audience when those jokes fly across.

 

They're gonna have to parachute down little packets of VALIUM & LUDES instead of Milk Duds & Snowcaps to get thru that show.

The director of the show ought to get paid DOUBLE for that job (they're gonna probably need stock footage from previous Oscars for the cutaways)...

 

Won't be hard for the cookie cutter tuxedos, but the dresses & botox??? Whoo boy!

It nearly happened to me, working at a Fortune 100 company.  After a practice fire drill, where we were outside the building, they gave the 'All Clear' signal for us to go back in.  There's a few hundred people that got to get in the front door.  And while I walking behind an attractuve young woman, I tripped on a raised part of the sidewalk edge and plowed forward, right into  the middle of her backside.  I'm talking full on, connection to the crack, from behind.  She knew i, I knew it and we both said, not a single word, but boy, was I embarassed!

GOYIM, I'M SORRY!

Let me go to Europe now... Where SHIKSA rape is encouraged.

I'll be at a Swedish Refugee Camp.

Hugs,

Harvey

Interesting how he only needs help now that he is caught.  Much too busy silencing and intimidating your victims to need any help before, eh Harv?

All scripted damage control "I'm sick, I need help".

Put a really big fork in him. DONE!!!!

 

The average citizen will pay for years for legal infractions and often, never recover their lives. Probation is a $10 billion industry set up to create failure and a lifetime in "the system".

Private corrections is another bi "Clinton Contribution" to society.
