Samantha Bee has a message for all the “creeps” in Hollywood: “We know who you are.”
The late-night host made the comments while talking about Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood producer who has has been accused of sexual abuse by multiple women
Speaking on her show Full Frontal, Bee was highly critical of Weinstein — who she called the “white Bill Cosby” — elaborating on how more high-profile people will fall soon enough.
“Showbizz is finally starting to clean house,” she told an audience. “Only a little, but it is something. So listen up, creeps of Hollywood, we know who you are.
"Weinstein isn't the only cool Democrat lurking in film festival hotels, waiting to play a jolly masturbation prank. Women talk to each other. And we talk to journalists. And we talk to lawyers. It's 2017, we don't have to put up with this shit. We are coming for you.” Watch the full segment below.
A New York Times piece published earlier this week accused Weistein of abusing multiple women, something the producer has categorically denied.
However, since the initial report, multiple more women have come forward, including actors Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Léa Seydoux.
The Weinstein Co. has since dropped Weinstein, while the board of directors at the Oscars are debating whether the producer should be dropped from their membership.
