Rape Golem Harvey Weinstein Is Appealing His Rape Conviction Because He Thinks the Media Was Too Hard on Him For All the Rapes

Harvey Weinstein spent decades strutting around as the tiny, deformed dick you had to suck if you wanted to be a movie star. As one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers, all he really had to do to stay on top forever was not rape a bunch of women.

Harvey was convicted of multiple rapes last year, and now he’s appealing because he says he didn’t have a fair trial.

ABC 7 in New York reports Weinstein claims media bias and faulty juror selection process, among other complaints, left him unable to receive a fair trial.

Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein appealed his rape conviction Monday, arguing he was made a “media villain” and tried in a “highly volatile and prejudicial atmosphere” that failed to safeguard his right to a fair trial by an impartial jury.

“Although the defense raised legitimate questions about whether Juror No. 11 was fit to serve, the trial court failed to discharge its constitutional obligation to conduct a full inquiry to ensure that the juror was capable of rendering a fair and impartial verdict,” the defense wrote.

Look, I think Woody Allen has been unfairly vilified in the press over unsubstantiated allegations. Harvey Weinstein has been accused of rape by so many women that they could field a team for every major professional sport simultaneously and still have some women on the bench.

I don’t think Harvey is going to be able to jump the General Lee over a canyon and Duke Boys his way out of this one. I expect all sorts of further appeals, but I don’t expect any of them to be successful.

I just think it’s funny that after decades of basically running Hollywood, Weinstein says the media was out to get him.
