Matt Damon and Russell Crowe Allowed Harvey Weinstein’s Sexual Misconduct to Continue

This Harvey Weinstein story is levels deep. By now, you know that the New York Times alleges that Harvey Weinstein is a sexual predator.

They detailed how Weinstein paid off women he sexually harassed. Doing business for him meant inviting women over into fancy hotel suites under the guise of professional meetings. Once there, he’d pressure them into giving him massages while he was naked. He’d pressure women to sleep with him in return for career advancement.

Sometimes, he’d skip the pleasantries. Rose McGowan alleges that he raped her. Italian model Ambra Battilana accused him of groping her breasts and reaching up her skirt the first time they met.

These allegations aren’t anything new. Back in 2004, Sharon Waxman, founder of The Wrap, researched a story on Weinstein’s predator ways that the New York Times eventually killed. Why?

Because Matt Damon and Russell Crowe pressured them to do so.

During her research. Waxman discovered that Miramax hired Fabrizio Lombardo to run Miramax Italy. A plum job that paid him $400,000 for less than a year of work. All that money and he didn’t know jack about film. Per Waxman:

I had people on the record telling me Lombardo knew nothing about film, and others citing evenings he organized with Russian escorts.

His main job was rumored to be Weinstein’s talent scout, i.e. finding women for Weinstein. Weinstein, after Lombardo was fired, called him “an executive well worth having in the film industry.” Yeah, I bet.

Damon and Crowe eventually called Waxman and stuck up for Lombardo.

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.

Look at Crowe and Weinstein with Renee Zellweger and tell me that he didn’t know about Weinstein.

Zellweger’s using Weinstein’s crotch as an armrest. Is she one of his girls too?

Damon and Crowe haven’t said anything about the Weinstein New York Times article. They probably won’t make any comments either because they have balls only when they’re onscreen.
