Emma Thompson Speaks Out About Harvey Weinstein: 'He Is A Predator'

Emma Thompson is the latest celebrity calling out Harvey Weinstein after a wave of sexual harassment allegations have come to light over the past week.

The Academy Award-winning actress responded to the various stories coming out against Harvey in an interview with BBC Newsnight.

“I don’t think you can describe him as a sex addict, he’s a predator. That’s different. He’s at the top of, as it were the ladder of, is a system of harassment and belittlement and bullying and interference. This has been part of our world, women’s world, since time immemorial.”

“So what we need to start talking about is the crisis in masculinity, the crisis of extreme masculinity which is this sort of behavior,” she added.

    It’s so sad to hear actresses and actors talk about their horrifying experiences, not just with Harvey Weinstein, but in general. Now is really the time to start uprooting this club of people who think it is ok to prey on women, children and men who are weaker than them. I’m glad people like Emma Thomson are speaking out.

    Masculinity is not a problem here. It’s money and power that makes people do immoral things. She’s trying to place blame on males that are still masculine, and not ben feminized and turned gay. Go away Emma, you are clueless.

    Men without money and power commit these same acts as well, don’t they? What she’s talking about here is not blaming masculinity, but toxic masculinity. Two different things. Also, you cannot “turn” someone gay. So yeah
