In light of the newly launched hashtag #MeToo, more and more women continue to come forward to share their disturbing experiences with Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein. Jill Scott recently took to Twitter early on Friday morning (Oct. 20), to share her terrible first encounter with Weinstein. While she was not reportedly assaulted, she claims her first impression of the businessman has made her stay away from him ever since.
In a series of two tweets, Scott shared her story. “When I met Harvey Weinstein, he was RUDE,” she recalled. “In the NASTIEST tone he said, ‘Who told you to get pregnant?!' And rolled his eyes in disgust.” And after that, she said she never dealt with him again. “I stayed away from him after. Who acts that way towards a pregnant woman??” she wrote. “Power to all the women bullied by a**holes. Power in general.
Scott’s testimony comes after actress Lupita Nyong’o shared her horrific experience with Weinstein in an op-ed for The New York Times. In the piece, the Black Panther star detailed an incident in which Weinstein requested a massage from Nyong’o in his bedroom.
More than a dozen women within Hollywood have come forward revealing instances of sexual harassment and assault at the hands of Weinstein. The movie executive has reportedly been terminated from his own company and is now being investigated by the LAPD.
