Ashley Judd, Elizabeth Banks, Padma Lakshmi & More Celebs React To Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict

Earlier today, Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of committing a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape and celebrities are reacting to it on social media.

The charges and verdict come almost two years after the former producer was accused of sexual harassment, assault or rape.

Ashley Judd was one of the first to react to the verdict, writing, “For the women who testified in this case, and walked through traumatic hell, you did a public service to girls and women everywhere, thank you.#ConvictWeinstein #Guilty.”

Chef Padma Lakshmi added, “Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist. If there’s a man who doesn’t deserve bail, it’s him.”

“I am heartened for his victims and for all those who said #metoo and #TimesUp that some justice has been done,” Elizabeth Banks shared on her timeline.

Annabella Sciorra also reacted to Harvey‘s guilty verdict, despite being acquitted on her rape charges.
