The Harvey Wein$tein effect has exposed the hypocrisy of Hollywood. They have all been talking and speaking about women’s rights, misogyny and women being treated unfairly for years.
We have heard from the campaigns of candidates, their support and fury over this matter, taking money and donations with the promise to fight those of injustice – until now. The silence is deafening in an industry of pretenders with all their money and opinions of what is right and wrong with our society – but still no one knew?
They heard and had ideas but still eight women and probably countless others had to endure the behavior from a rich and powerful individual with the power of money, politics and entertainment to back him.
In a business that knows everyone and everything, there are donations and dinners, celebrations and awards shows to embrace themselves and everything they have accomplished – pretending.
Political candidates and parties take Mr. Weinstein’s money and donations, attend his galas and disregard women’s rights and justice for a photo opportunity, check or future considerations. It has been going for years.
Keep pretending and entertaining, you are the best at it. Hollywood = hypocrisy.
