Harvey Weinstein Denies Lupita Nyong'o Sexual Harassment

Harvey Weinstein is speaking out after Lupita Nyong’o accused him of sexual harassment in an opt-ed piece.

The Oscar-winning actress wrote that Harvey made her feel “unsafe” and made sexual advancements towards her on several occasions.

Harvey is now denying her claims, right after reportedly completing a one-week therapy program.

“Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry. Last year, she sent a personal invitation to Mr. Weinstein to see her in her Broadway show Eclipsed,” Harvey‘s rep said in a statement.

Lupita‘s rep said that the actress has “no further comment.”

    “Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events…”

    Who cares what this piece of shit thinks? His publicist is literally taking the easy road, do they even bother?

  • Koos

    he isnt a racist.

  • Jett Rink

    Of course this is the one accusation that he chooses to deny…lol

  • duh!

    Lol what’s the matter Harvey, u can’t admit you sexually abused someone while your kids were downstairs

  • duh!

    Lol yep, Lupita did say his children were downstairs in the house…I’m wondering if his wife was home as well, I’m sure she knew of his nasty behavior

  • duh!

    Who cares if he is, this man is a pig and needs to be put down along with bill cosby

    Oh, girl. You don’t send your sexual harasser an invite to your show. This is why John Q Public doesn’t believe the victims, and it’s why celebrity victims are not taken seriously.

  • Ause Ekel

    Harvey, why doing that man…just shut up and accept that your career is over.

  • tom

    I believe Harvey, hitting on someone is not sexual harassment, this poor actress that can only play slaves wants attention.

  • persononhere

    because the she’s the only black woman he denies it?

  • j.

    interesting that this is the accusation he chooses to deny

  • Wendy

    Do you know him personally? lol

  • DorothyfromOz

    Of course he is going to deny it. He has too per his lawyers request no doubt. The guy is delusional, he thinks he can still come back from this after a few days at a “lux” rehab stint. We all know he’s a sexual predator, he preys on woman who he knows wouldn’t give him the time of day if he wasn’t a producer. What I don’t get is why any woman would be stupid and/or desperate enough to go to his room. If you are confident in your abilities you stand strong against people like Weinstein. Of course he became huge in Hollywood because these actresses and actors made him famous with their roles. I don’t get why anyone would work for someone like Weinstein to begin with, the only talent he has is the ability to detect talent. Hell I can do that, most people can detect natural talent.

    Or she’s lying to jump on the victim train and he’s calling her out on it, all to the sound of a chorus of race-baiters.

  • CLINIQUA

    She believed she wouldn’t be taken seriously either, which is why she was still trying to play the game.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Well, I’m not taking her very seriously now. She sent her harasser an invite to her show. That’s a deal-breaker for me and for a lot of people. And he’s never forgotten it and now used it against her to discredit her. Roll around with pigs, you’ll get covered in mud every time. She should have left that pig alone.

    They were likely with the nanny.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Because he has something on her: she sent him an invite after she claimed to be harassed by him numerous times. I believe her, but this is bad.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    This comment makes no sense. He’s denied ALL the accusations. He’s only admitted to being “inappropriate” – he’s never admitted to gross indecency, being naked, forced oral sex, rape, threats and coercion, etc. He’s only in therapy (such that it is) to try and save his job.

  • Narima

    It just proves how stupid he is !!!! This means that anyone else was right about his bad behavior!! I hate him sooo much

  • persononhere

    no. his lawyers and reps have denied everything on his behalf in a blanket statement – saying they were all consensual. this is the only recent one where they seem to be calling her out individually. he didn’t say “i deny” each time an actress has come forward recently but in this case a statement was released just about her specifically. a specific denial.
