Harvey Weinstein Accused of Even More Rapes, Raising Questions of When He Had Time to Make Movies

There’s a scene in Blazing Saddles where villain Hedley Lamar is recruiting thugs for his evil plan and one recruit lists his qualifications as “Rape, murder, arson and rape,” to which Lamar (played brilliantly by Harvey Korman) points out “You said rape twice,” and the thug says “I like rape.” I know Harvey Weinstein was a big fan of movies and he was 22 when Blazing Saddles hit cinemas, so I like to imagine he saw this scene and connected with it as both a future movie producer and allegedly very prolific rapist.

Harvey has almost as many rape accusations against him as he does Oscar wins for pictures he produced, and I think by the time everything is settled, he’ll have surpassed that mark.

Case in point, Page Six reports that Weinstein was just accused of four more rapes, one going as far back as 1984.

A 43-year-old Tennessee woman says that she was just 17 when Weinstein lured her to his New York hotel room for a business meeting, in 1994, and told her she’d have to “sexually gratify him” if she wanted an acting gig. He allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him then raped her, according to court papers.

Did you ever notice that despite Weinstein’s power as a producer and the extremely prolific nature of his casting couch antics, you don’t really hear anyone truly famous saying “Weinstein forced me to have sex with him and now I’m a huge star.” There were a few famous actresses who said he blacklisted them in the industry and hurt their careers for rejecting him, but Harvey doesn’t really seem to have delivered on his promises to make women stars if they put his tiny limp penis in their mouths.

A 70-year-old Ecuadorian woman charges that Weinstein, 68, attacked her in 1984 at the Cannes Film Festival. She was 34 and was trying to break into the film industry as a documentarian.

1984! Harvey Weinstein was (allegedly) up to this s**t for 40 years. I mean, sure, he’s in jail for rape now and going on trial for more rapes on the other side of the country soon and being sued for even more rapes every day, but god damn did he get away with it for a long time.
