Well, a minimum of that’s something Harvey Weinstein wants to excuse.
In case you didn’t hear, the disgraced film magnate’s most current defense was to explain some A-list stars he * didn’t * sexually attack or bug. Like that shows something.

As you may envision, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence did dislike having their names utilized in this method and instantly defended the rights of his accusers.
Now Harvey has actually said sorry to the stars in a declaration from his representative to The Hollywood Reporter, stating:
” Mr. Weinstein acknowledges the important input both Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence have actually added to this discussion and asks forgiveness. Moving on, Mr. Weinstein has actually recommended his counsel to not consist of particular names of previous partners; and to prevent whenever possible, even if they remain in the general public record.
Mr. Weinstein has actually been notified that his civil counsel reacted in court to a class action suit which incorrectly looked for to consist of all starlets who had actually formerly dealt with Mr. Weinstein, even where those starlets have actually made no claim of misdeed. Although Mr. Weinstein has actually dealt with numerous stars and starlets who had equally considerate and just expert experiences with him, Mr. Weinstein has actually directed in the future that no particular names be utilized by his counsel, even where those stars have actually made previous public declarations about him.”
Is it simply us or is he still stating he’s intending on utilizing the reality he didn’t sexually abuse everybody as proof he didn’t sexually abuse anybody?
Thankfully that defense is ridiculous or every wrongdoer who ever lived might utilize it:
” As the court can see, I’m not killing anybody now“
