Seth McFarlane Comments On Harvey Weinstein Allegations

Let the record show that Seth MacFarlane's joke about Harvey Weinstein during the 2013 Academy Awards nominations telecast was meant as a "hard swing" at the scandal-embroiled film producer. After reading the names, he added, "Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein". "She has since courageously come forward to speak out". Or perhaps they're just laughing because they've resigned themselves that creeps are gonna creep with impunity as long as they have the influence and wealth to insulate themselves from consequences.

Barth has since spoken out about her uncomfortable encounter with the 65-year-old filmmaker in his hotel room, alleging to The New Yorker on Tuesday, October 10, that her meeting with Weinstein "alternated between offering to cast her in a film and demanding a naked massage in bed".

Interested in Harvey Weinstein? "And I'm, like, 'That's not going to happen'".

While those outside of Hollywood was unaware, we found out of at least one person who knew about Weinstein and that was Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane stood by his joke on Wednesday, saying in a tweet, "Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger".

"There is nothing more abhorrent and indefensible than abuse of power such as this", he said. It took until now, when multiple sites publish different articles about Weinstein's behavior that got people to finally believe these women.

Jolie told The New York Times earlier this week: "I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did".

Weinstein responded to the report in a lengthy, rambling statement in which he pleaded for a second chance and apologized for the pain he had caused.

But Weinstein's attorney Charles Harder also told ABC News in a statement that the Times' report from last Thursday was "saturated with false and defamatory statements" about the movie mogul, and added he is now preparing a lawsuit against the paper.
