Gillian Turner on Weinstein: Actors Take Care to Say They Haven’t Seen it...Of Course You Haven’t Seen This
TURNER: "The problem with a lot of responses we are seeing, to me, comes from the things they say after they call him out. George Clooney himself did this in his interview. People like him and Jennifer Lawrence say that they have not personally been witnessed or privy to any of these behaviors from Harvey Weinstein. This is something we see all the time. I don't know if there is a legal basis for this here, if there is legal reasons, like they are covering their butts but it rubs me the wrong way they will take care to say they haven't seen it. When do people rape and assault victims in front of other people? Of course others haven't seen this. Harvey Weinstein didn't ask a young woman to watch him take a shower in front of others. Perpetrators go to great lengths to cover up their crimes. It's like if you are talking about a murder 'Well, I never saw him murder.' It's horrible but I never saw it. Of course you didn't."
