Harvey Weinstein once was called “God” by award-winning actor Meryl Streep.
Well, it looks like Streep’s version of “God” has taken a mighty fall and he’s feeling it right where it hurts.
Weinstein is a once-notable agent to the stars and a big-time Democratic Party donor. It turns out the fellow’s got a seedy, sordid and salacious past.
Allegations of sexual harassment — and even rape — have emerged to sink this guy, who this week was actually fired from the company he co-founded. Actors have bailed on him left and right. Women have come forward to accuse him of seeking to do naughty things with and to them.
To make matters worse — and yes they can get worse — Weinstein’s wife has announced she’s leaving him.
Oh, and then there’s the political side of it. All those Democratic pols, particularly the women who run for or who currently occupy public office? They’re donating the cash that Weinstein gave to their political efforts to charities, notably those that deal with women who are abused or harassed.
I get that we’re talking virtually about allegations. I haven’t heard of anything that’s been proven.
But this big-time big hitter is paying the price he likely ought to pay. All those allegations — they appear to be countless — seem to add up to a disgusting and disgraceful past that has caught up with this guy.
