New York Mayor de Blasio Says Trump Should Be Investigated Like Weinstein

  • “We Got You” Harvey Weinstein Accuser Rose Mc Gowan Reacts To His Arrest

Rose McGowan and Asia Argento were among the celebrities who spoke out after Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to New York City police on Friday, May 25, to face criminal charges for his alleged sexual abuse.

Those three words were repeated in a tweet shortly after Weinstein surrendered to NY authorities and was led into a courtroom in handcuffs.

Weinstein and his lawyer seem set to argue that anything that happened was consensual, nothing more than the age-old pattern of powerful Hollywood moguls enjoying one of the job's biggest perks.

Weinstein flinched as he heard the description.

Weinstein, wearing a dark jacket over a blue sweater and white open-collared shirt and dark jeans, appeared pale, and stood next to Brafman, staring into the middle distance with his mouth ajar while prosecutors described a bail agreement.

"I have to admit I didn't think I would see the day that he would have handcuffs on him", she told ABC News in an interview taped Thursday, when news outlets first reported Weinstein's imminent surrender to authorities.

Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Brafman signaled he would defend Weinstein by undermining the credibility of his client's accusers. We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorized by his vast network of complicity. When asked if she could say something to Weinstein at that moment, McGowan simply said, "We got you".

Prosecutors are charging the disgraced movie producer with sexual assault against two women, including allegations from a woman who accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex during a meeting in his office in 2004.

The statement did not identify the two women. Weinstein may have wanted to have sex, but didn't assume from the get-go he would have to rape the woman. A court complaint said Weinstein raped her in a Manhattan hotel in 2013.

Weinstein will be charged over an allegation by at least one accuser, Lucia Evans, a former aspiring actress. The New York Times and The New Yorker magazine were the first to report the accusations.

"You know who you are, but most importantly, we know who you are, and we are not going to allow you to get away with it any longer".

"This wasn't a smile to say, 'Be on my side, ' or 'Hey, I'm innocent.' It was freaky and suggestive that he may feel he is going to get away with this or that I've gotten away with this for this long", she explains.

"The man who pinned me down had handcuffs on him today", she said.

Evans' lawyer Carrie Goldberg told The Associated Press that "we are relieved and grateful that justice is coming, but we also mourn the cases where it didn't".

Other actresses who have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct include Uma Thurman and Salma Hayek.

Revelations in The New York Times and The New Yorker in the fall spurred official inquiries in New York, Los Angeles and London.

Women worldwide have also taken to social media, using #MeToo to share their own stories of being sexually assaulted or harrassed in the workplace.
