Quentin Tarantino, besides being known as literally one of the most overrated filmmakers in the history of modern film, was also a super-tight amigo to Harvey Weinstein. In between raping up-and-coming Tinseltown starlets, Harvey pretty much bankrolled Tarantino’s entire career.
When the news broke about his buddy Harvey, Quentin was so distraught, he decided he needed time to process everything before making an official statement.
Looks like he’s finally through processing.
I knew enough to do more than I did. There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.
Ah, well at least Quentin’s admitting it now. After decades of Harvey performing unasked-for stripteases and manipulating gullible young actresses (see This Actress’s Harvey Weinstein Story is One of The Worst Yet and Video: Courtney Love Warned Us About Harvey Weinstein…in 2005!), and after it became safe to speak out, Tarantino’s finally admitting he knew all along.
I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.
Yeah, I’m gonna call bullhickey on that one. Harvey could have whipped it out and deposited his seed in a flower pot at Tarantino’s mother’s house. But, if it meant getting Pulp Fiction greenlit, Quentin would have looked the other way. Which, apparently he did. For a quarter of a century.
I’m calling on the other guys who knew more to not be scared. Don’t just give out statements.
Yeah, sorry Quentin, and other guys who knew all along (::cough::Ben Affleck::cough::George Clooney::coughcoughcough). You don’t get credit for speaking out about this colossal scandal twenty years later. You may be expecting a pat on the back and a cookie. Not gonna happen.
Instead, we’ll just go ahead and call you guys out for being the amoral hypocrites you are:
