Post Harvey Weinstein abuse stories keep coming out (see James Van Der Beek Admits to Being Sexually Harassed by Hollywood Executives and After Days of Speaking Out on Hollywood Abusers, Twitter SUSPENDS Rose McGowan). Here’s Rob Schneider sharing a story of his own. He points out it’s not only wealthy executive studio heads copping feels. It is just about everyone in the business.
