SNL Creator Lorne Michaels LAUGHS Revealing Why Show Gave Harvey Weinstein a Pass (VIDEO)
As previously reported, embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is the subject of a devastating expose detailing decades of sexual harassment.
So far the Hollywood elites have yet to condemn serial predator Harvey Weinstein.
In March 2012 Hollywood actress Meryl Streep praised serial predator Harvey Weinstein as “god” at the Golden Globes.
The audience loved it.
Will Streep now condemn this predator?
She was very upset with Donald Trump on his language.
But she is yet to condemn Weinstein for his decades of abuse.
According to SNL creator Lorne Michaels, the reason why his show didn’t cover the controversy is because Weinstein is a fellow New Yorker — like President Trump?
Daily Mail UK reports:
Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels has seemingly admitted the show chose not to roast Harvey Weinstein because the embattled film heavyweight is from New York.
When Michaels was asked as he was leaving SNL’s after-party at 4am why the show avoided the Weinstein controversy, the producer smiled and responded: ‘It’s a New York thing.’
The show had earlier been criticized for not mentioning the sexual harassment allegations leveled against Weinstein this week.
But DailyMail.com has since learned that the cast did try out a Weinstein joke during dress rehearsal – it just never made it to air.
