You don’t need the Harvey Weinstein scandal to know that Hollywood is the world’s capital of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do hypocrisy. You only need to be breathing.
Rumors are swirling that Hollywood titan and self proclaimed feminist , Harvey Weinstein, who takes advantage of pretty women seeking to work in Hollywood will receive the Motion Picture Lifetime Achievement Award. Ashley Judd is speculated to be the presenter.
Judd, or as she likes to refer to herself —Nasty Woman —went to have a breakfast meeting with Weinstein at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel and when she arrived found Harvey wanted to have said meeting in his room. What could that possibly mean? Well, almost anybody could answer that in a moment. Did she do the sensible thing and say she preferred the hotel’s lovely dining room? Clearly not. She went upstairs. Her career obviously Trumped her values.
Actress and left-wing activist Ashley Judd called the “tragedy” of Donald Trump’s election victory far worse than an experience from her childhood in which she was raped. “It remains for me the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my lifetime,” Judd said of Trump’s successful election. “Raped as a child – bad. Re-raped by a political system that ordains a clown – really bad.”
I am wondering how it compared to being propositioned by Weinstein ?
