For the back story here, check out Hillary Clinton Lackey Attacks Anthony Bourdain. Whose Girlfriend Accused Weinstein of Rape… and Quentin Tarantino FINALLY Breaks the Silence on Harvey Weinstein. Because Anthony Bourdain apparently doesn’t find Quentin Tarantino’s excuses about Harvey Weinstein acceptable. Or even all that believable in the first place.
Bourdain’s reference to Tarantino came as he was discussing his decision to turn down a big-money offer that would have involved merchandising and other ventures because he and his longtime producing partners did not feel comfortable with the person offering the deal.
Despite the fact that “it was a lot of money,” Bourdain and his partners Lydia Tenaglia and Chris Collins decided immediately after the meeting that the deal “would have been a slow-acting poison that would have nibbled away at our souls until we ended up like Quentin Tarantino, looking back at a life of complicity, shame and compromise.”
Bourdain declined to elaborate on his statement after the session. When asked by Variety if his reference to Tarantino was meant in the context of the Weinstein scandal, Bourdain replied: “One might think.”
Bourdain, while a lefty (yes, we know about the poisoning Trump joke), hasn’t shied away from taking shots at the left before. Tarantino? Literally the most overrated filmmaker in the history of talkies. Also, he looks like a peen. Feel free to take that literally or figuratively.
Tarantino isn’t alone in zipping his lip on his good pal’s decades-long rape spree, either. Just about every overrated player of pretend in Hollywood seemed to be in the know on Harvey’s “pastime.”
Those A-listers could have done something about it. Instead, they either looked the other way or actively aided Harv in covering his tracks. So much for being moral arbiters.
