Following damning allegations that Matt Damon directly helped to kill a 2004 New York Times expose on Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual misconduct, popular author and journalist Mike Cernovich has promised a protest outside his home.
Former New York Times journalist Sharon Waxman, who previously attempted to report on Weinstein’s behavior, has alleged that “after intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the Times, the story was gutted.”
Damon has close ties to Weinstein, as the Hollywood mogul produced “Good Will Hunting,” as well as Damon and Affleck’s reality TV series “Project Greenlight.”
On Monday afternoon, Cernovich tweeted “we will be organizing a protest outside of Matt Damon’s home to address his pattern of covering up for Harvey Weinstein.”

Cernovich has been instrumental in not only breaking major stories before the mainstream media, but is also known to organize protests and rallies, and is co-running the new Rev18 Super PAC which is aimed at helping to elect ‘America First’ candidates in the 2018 races.
As of Monday evening, details had not yet been released about when the protest would be taking place.
On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from the company that bears his own name after the massive scandal broke about the major Democratic donor’s history of sexual harassment and misconduct. Harvey’s younger brother and co-Chairman Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser are now temporarily running the business.
The Weinstein Company is reportedly set to change their name, after it was “irreversibly tainted,” Fox News reported early Monday morning.
Big League Politics has reached out to Cernovich for comment and will update this story if more information about the protest is made available.
