Hey all, I know I’m late to the conversation here. I don’t usually use twitter but it seems like that’s where a lot of this conversation is happening. Last night I confronted Harvey Weinstein in a bar along with a number of other artists. Heres the thread (1/?) #HarveyWeinstein pic.twitter.com/L8Oee5hAO7

The scene was POWERFUL.
Several women confronted disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein at a bar in NYC on Wednesday.
It was captured on video, and posted to Twitter.
First, a comedian named Kelly Bachman “went after” Weinstein during her performance at the Actor’s Hour event; she was allegedly booed and told to shut up.
Soon after, a woman named Zoe Stuckless, one of the event’s attendees, began yelling at Weinstein.
Weinstein’s bodyguards eventually removed her from the bar.
Zoe explained her actions in a lengthy Facebook post, writing, “I thought about all of the voices that have been silenced over so many years. I thought about the artists, the women, who were paralyzed by the same fear that I felt, surrounded by colleagues who were intimidated into a culture of silence and passivity. This room was a microcosm of our whole community.”
And then a THIRD confrontation happened later that same evening, with a woman screaming at him that he is an “f—ing monster” and that he should disappear.
A rep for Weinstein responded in writing, “Harvey Weinstein was out with friends enjoying the music and trying to find some solace in his life that has been turned upside down. This scene was uncalled for, downright rude and an example of how due process today is being squashed by the public, trying to take it away in the courtroom too.
“As an aside – Harvey suggested the woman should be allowed to talk and ask him any questions. The venue’s personnel asked the woman to leave, not Harvey’s.”
Harvey Weinstein said, “I am happy to address anyone’s questions. We should all be offered the courtesy to voice opinions and be heard, and to even get answers. I am glad we all still have these rights.”
