Former Miramax Screenwriter Posts Harvey Weinstein Mea Culpa: "Everybody Fu*king Knew"

• Zero Hedge

The LA Times asks: so who has dared to defend Harvey Weinstein?

The answer?: "Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, actress Lindsay Lohan, actor Tony Denison, fashion designer Donna Karan and director Woody Allen rose to Weinstein's defense despite a tidal wave of industry condemnation."

Of course, each of these has subsequently and awkwardly walked back their initial enthusiasm for defending Weinstein as more accusations piled on and were substantiated. But what we should really be talking about is the decades of silence across the entertainment industry which few brave souls tried to warn about years ago.

And when Hollywood sexual abuse survivor Corey Feldmen tried to talk generally about the Hollywood subculture of rampant sexual assault and pedophilia with cameras rolling on "The View" in 2013... well if you haven't seen it yet, it's definitely one for the historical record which should never be forgotten. Though Feldmen was speaking about his own dark experience involving other powerful film industry predators and not Weinstein in particular, the response he got from one well-known host is certainly indicative of what victims were and are up against.

"Are you saying they are pedophiles and that they are still in this business?" then-host Barbara Walters asked. "Yes," Feldman replied.

Walters immediately tried to shut Feldmen down with, "You're damaging an entire industry!"
