Harvey Weinstein To Avoid Paying $25 Million Settlement

Published

on

Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has reportedly reached a $25 million settlement as part of a complicated court case being conducted in New York involving his studio and over 30 female accusers.

Weinstein is one of over 260 members of the elite – in entertainment, the media, politics, and more – who have been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by hundreds of women since 2017, when the first Weinstein accusers helped open the floodgates for the #MeToo movement.

However, despite the firestorm of outrage, for many justice has been long in coming, and indeed may be still far away. For example, the $25 million settlement does not require Weinstein to actually admit any wrongdoing, and will not even be paid by him, but by insurance companies representing his bankrupt studio, The Weinstein Company.

In fact, around $12 million will actually go to Weinstein for the purpose of offsetting his legal fees. The rest will be shared by over 30 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.

Weinstein’s health has deteriorated significantly, largely as a result of a car crash in August for which he continues to require surgeries to manage pain. The alleged rapist cut a derelict figure limping out of court proceedings on a walker, and together with his legal team has already attempted to use his condition to gin up sympathy from the public and the judicial system.

However, this plea for sympathy contrasts badly with the fact that Weinstein has had his bail raised from $1 million to $5 million after numerous continual violations of his ankle monitor.

Even if this case proceeds favorably, the Hollywood predator’s troubles are unlikely to be over. Independent of proceedings in New York, it was reported recently that the LA County DA’s office is now reviewing eight cases against him received from the LAPD and Beverly Hills PD.

The cases under consideration in California also relate to accusations from women of sexual misconduct. Two of these were submitted recently, while the others have been in review for close to two years.

While Weinstein begs for sympathy from the press and finagles his way out of admitting guilt or making monetary restitution, his accusers continue to be denied justice. One of them, British actress Lysette Anthony, recently revealed that she continues to be tormented by nightmares of the multiple times she alleges that Weinstein violently raped her.

Unfortunately, the cases of individuals such as Jeffrey Epstein or Jussie Smollet demonstrate that the ruling class live by a different set of rules and are rarely held accountable for their crimes, no matter how evil. Perhaps one day the double standard will become too intolerable for people to bear.

‘Ghostbusters’ Director Blames Hillary Clinton’s Unpopularity for Failure of All-Female Franchise Reboot

Maybe your movie just stunk, dude.

Nearly four years later, the all-female reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ is now remembered as one of the worst atrocities in the history of cinema, and director Paul Feig is blaming anti-Hillary Clinton backlash for its failure.

“I think some really brilliant author … needs to write a book about 2016 and how intertwined we were with Hillary [Clinton] and the anti-Hillary movement,” Feig said while appearing on SiriusXM radio last week.

“Everyone was at a boiling point. I don’t know if it was having an African American president for eight years that teed them up, they were just ready to explode,” he added.

Feig is desperate to make excuses for his movie’s failure, rather than take personal responsibility for creating one of the worst movies in film history.

“It’s crazy how people got nuts about women trying to be in power or be in positions they weren’t normally in,” Feig said. “It was an ugly, ugly year.”

The fake news media has been pushing the line that sexism doomed the movie since its historic failure at the box office during its summer 2016 release. However, ‘Ghostbusters’ creator Ivan Reitman believes that it was nostalgia that caused the backlash, not sexism. Viewers did not want to watch a ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot that was seemingly blasphemous to the original.

“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” Reitman said during an interview with Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.”

Feig refuses to admit that his creation was so horrendous and even hopes to release a grueling 3.5 hour directors’ cut of the flick despite the fact that nobody wants to see it.

Because the movie was such a massive bomb, the cast has been scrapped and replaced with a new cast for the upcoming re-boot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” The initial trailer was released last year to rave reviews.

It can be seen here:

Actress Leslie Jones, who starred in the failed all-female reboot, whined about the new movie that is set for theaters in 2021 for completely sweeping her movie under the rug. Similar to her director, she blamed Trump because everyone hated her awful movie.

Feig and Jones, in true liberal fashion, have refused to own up to their own failures. They will continue to create scapegoats instead of admitting the obvious about their horrendous movie that failed spectacularly in its feminist agenda of female empowerment.
