A Lot of Hollywood Men Have a History of Sexual Inappropriateness

A lot of liberal Hollywood celebrity men condemned Harvey Weinstein (only after the majority of the allegations came forward)-- Jimmy Kimmel, Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Mark Ruffalo, and others. Even worse is Matt Damon, who is alleged to have helped kill the New York Times story about the Weinstein offenses in 2004. He claims that's not true, and has come forward to lend his voice to the chorus of anti-Weinstein sentiment now.

Also telling is the list of celeb males who haven't commented, even though they've worked with Weinstein -- Michael Moore, Quentin Tarantino, Daniel Day-Lewis, Bradley Cooper, Martin Scorsese....

But actress Rose McGowan exposed some of those commenting as hypocrites, saying that Ben Affleck told her in private that he knew about the Weinstein assaults. She tweeted, "'GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face. [...] The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie." Brad Pitt also allegedly threatened to beat up Weinstein after he sexually harassed his then-girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow; but he didn't actually raise the issue with authorities or warn other actresses.

But it goes beyond that.

As it turns out, some of the strongest anti-Weinstein voices have actually acted inappropriately themselves:


Jimmy Kimmel:

On his late-night show, Kimmel asked, "What's the difference between Harvey Weinstein and the Pillsbury Doughboy? When the Pillsbury Doughboy offers you a roll, he doesn't ask you to watch him take a shower for it." He also insisted on making a comparison between Weinstein and President Trump.
