Celeb Thrilled By Downfall Of Hollywood Producer & Mega Dem Donor Harvey Weinstein
It looks like movie producer and mega Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein might not have as many fans in Hollywood as he thinks.
Shortly after The New York Times’ devastating piece detailing decades of sexual allegations hit the web, The Hollywood Reporter Editor Ashley Lee tweeted, “when this Harvey Weinstein story hit, i had just finished an interview with a celeb who then smiled from ear to ear: “Finally. He’s done.””
While the identity of the celebrity is unknown at this time, more of such statements will surely come to light.
Embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is the subject of a devastating expose detailing decades of sexual harassment. Weinstein is one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest donors, having raised mega bucks for the failed Democratic presidential candidate.
Weinstein threw a fundraiser for Clinton back in June.
Page Six reports
Weinstein and his designer wife, Georgina Chapman, are planning a dinner and conversation with Clinton at their Manhattan home to benefit the Hillary Victory Fund.
We’re told the event will be for around 50. Weinstein has hosted fundraisers at his townhouse, as well as his home in Connecticut, for President Obama in 2011, ’12 and ’13.
How much did the fundraiser net for Clinton? $1.8 million.
Something in the neighborhood of $1.8 million was raised at Harvey Weinstein’s star-packed fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in New York City Monday night, sources tell Deadline. The event for 50 or so Clinton supporters at Weinstein’s Manhattan home drew some major Hollywood names, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Bethenny Frankel and designers Vera Wang and Tory Burch.
In the following month, Weinstein threw a concert for Clinton at the St. James Theatre.
