Silence Breakers react to Harvey Weinstein guilty verdict | USA TODAY 1


A group of women known as the Silence Breakers who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault or misconduct react to his guilty verdict.

RELATED: Harvey Weinstein convicted of two sex crimes

The Harvey Weinstein sex-crimes split verdict – guilty of rape and sexual assault, not guilty of the most serious predatory charges – raises immediate questions about what effect it will have on the #MeToo movement, on Hollywood and the entertainment industry in particular, and on the prosecution of sex crimes in general across the United States.

    • @Sam Although I agree with most of your comment, I dont agree with your comment that none of these women knew about each other. There was someone who attested that Weinstein would often name women who he had helped in the industry and how they used to be his “girlfriends”. Saying this to potential new women in his life to assure them that sleeping with him would be good for their careers. He is total scum, but he kept his word. There are dozens of women who willfully participated. These women knew he would keep his end of the deal and decided to participate and reaped the rewards afterwards. I would like to see these strong and powerful women, call out the other women who willfully participated and those who worked with him and claimed complete and total ignorance. Those women share some of this blame. Some even calling him a god. Makes me sick.

    • @Sam trapped? 🙄

    • @Montana Kid are you going to ask a reason question or are you going to sit here with a one word statement that I have to interpret. If you read my whole post you could see the general point and direction of my statement and figure out what “trapped” meant.

      @Navajo 23 Women who willfully participate do Not take away from those who were actually sexually assaulted.

    • @Natural Kinky Curly―Marie No, but it sure as hell doesnt help. Why do you think he had a reputation to begin with? He got it from the women who chose to sleep with this pig to further their careers. They arent exactly innocent. They are also choosing to remain quiet, or say they had no knowledge of what was going on. Thats really convenient wouldnt you say? According to Sam, since there is very little difference between the sexes, one could make an argument for those women who willfully participated, to also be predatory in their own way.

    Weinstein should GET LIFE he’s a danger to woman & girls

    • Not smart ones

    • @Montana Kid Doesn’t mean that he should be allowed out to prey on the dumb ones idiot. And don’t say that isnt what you said because you are implying it by stating a type of woman who isn’t in danger from Weinstein.

  7. “Hi, I was rapee #476. He’s a monster”. Lololol!

  8. Hollywood is responsible for this. They allowed it to happen. How anyone could give anyone in Hollywood credibility is simply amazing.

  9. Astounding how many females will show their clams for work.
    Justice served but don’t blame the devil for being the devil.

  10. Weinstein did nothing wrong #freeharvey
