Harvey Weinstein's Full Sexual Harassment Apology Released

Harvey Weinstein's Full Sexual Harassment Apology Released

Harvey Weinstein has issued an apology statement after allegations of decades worth of sexual harassment claims against him have come to light.

The 65-year-old Hollywood producer, who has taken the reigns of dozens and dozens of films over the years, had a huge expose come out moments ago.

Here’s his statement:

“I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then. I have since learned it’s not an excuse, in the office – or out of it. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed. I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it,” Harvey wrote.

“Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go. That is my commitment.
My journey now will be to learn about myself and conquer my demons. Over the last
year I’ve asked Lisa Bloom to tutor me and she’s put together a team of people. I’ve brought on therapists and I plan to take a leave of absence from my company and to deal with this issue head on. I so respect all women and regret what happened. I hope that my actions will speak louder than words and that one day we will all be able to earn their trust and sit down together with Lisa to learn more,” he continued.

Jay Z wrote in 4:44 ‘I’m not the man I thought I was and I better be that man for my children.’ The same is true for me. I want a second chance in the community but I know I’ve got work to do to earn it. I have goals that are now priorities. Trust me, this isn’t an overnight process. I’ve been trying to do this for 10 years and this is a wake-up call. I cannot be more remorseful about the people I hurt and I plan to do right by all of them.”

“I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I’ve decided that I’m going to give
the NRA my full attention. I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. I’m going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah. I’m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party. One year ago, I began organizing a $5 million foundation to give scholarships to women directors at USC. While this might seem coincidental, it has been in the works for a year. It will be named after my mom and I won’t disappoint her,” he concluded.

    What a weird apology and I hate that old, lame “back in the day” excuse.

    It’s reins not reigns, doesn’t anyone who works for you have the ability to get the basics right?

    He needs a team of people to help him learn how to not be a piece of sh**. How sad is that. He clearly got away with it for way too long.
