J.J. Abrams Speaks Out About Harvey Weinstein: 'He's a Monster'

J.J. Abrams is the latest member of Hollywood to speak out about Harvey Weinstein amid the movie producer’s ongoing sexual assault scandal.

The 51-year-old director gave his thoughts on Harvey to THR while at the 15th annual Gala in the Garden at The Hammer Museum on Saturday (October 14) in Los Angeles.

“Someone said to me the other day that they are sick of hearing people talk about how disgusting it is,” the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director said.

“I don’t think enough can be said about how viciously repulsive his abuse of power was. He’s a monster. There are other monsters but there are those who fight monsters and tonight is all about those who fight monsters.”

    No, this is about the monster, J.J. Abrams. Nickle-and-diming me to death for just the right words, just one more clarification … a pretense … as if you and the others have the right to legally represent me and my son in the ongoing criminal activity that you yourself have championed. YOU DO NOT. Nobody can do that without our written consent, a legitimate, binding contract. Valid authorization you’ve never had, permission you’ll never get. And all the while, the clock is ticking … tick tock, tick tock, tick tock … biding your time. Why? Because someone more powerful than you is running the “show”? Surely you’re not blaming GOD for your part in this illegal enterprise? After all, in the end, whoever chopped off the arms and the legs is the one who will be blamed. And that my friend, is me. So sue me. But remember! You sue me, you sue God. And God ALWAYS wins.
