Another woman has come forward with harsh claims against Harvey Weinstein. Grammy winner Jill Scott, who starred in the Weinstein Company-produced HBO show The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, took to Twitter on Thursday to bash the fallen producer for his behavior towards her years ago. According to Jill, she first met Harvey while she was pregnant, and he reacted in disgust. Click through to read Jill’s side of the story.
“When I met Harvey Weinstein, he was RUDE. In the NASTIEST tone he said ‘Who told you to get pregnant?!’ And rolled his eyes in disgust,” Jill wrote on Twitter.
“I stayed away from him after. Who acts that way towards a pregnant woman??” Jill continued. “Power to all the women bullied by assholes. Power in general.”
Fans were less than pleased with Harvey’s comment. “Did he somehow forget that a woman had to be pregnant in order to bring his sleezy and creepy-a***d self into the world?” one wrote.
“Purely disgusting,” wrote another.
Jill’s tweets come after Lupita Nyong’o wrote an op-ed about her own experience with Harvey in The New York Times. According to Lupita, Harvey asked to give her a massage in his house with his children in another room. When she refused, he gave her a copy of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency book series before she left and told her she’d be perfect for the show.
Nearly 50 women have accused Harvey of sexual harassment or assault since both The New York Times and The New Yorker recently published bombshell reports of Harvey’s alleged sexual misconduct over the years. “Now that we are speaking, let us never shut about this kind of thing,” Lupita wrote in her op-ed.
