Harvey Weinstein reaches $25 million settlement with accusers

Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has reached a $25 million settlement with more than 30 women who had accused him of sexual misconduct. If approved, the settlement would conclude most of the civil lawsuits pending against him. A trial is scheduled for Jan. 6th and Weinstein could face life in prison if convicted.

On the one hand, that's a rather low amount for what he is accused of, on the other hand, this was always about money and not justice.

It makes me wonder how many women offered to “do anything, and I mean anything 😉” to get their big break in the movies. Up to the point Weinstein became expectant and then entitled to to sex? Sure he’s a creep and went way too far, but these things rarely happen in a vacuum. How many young women go to Hollywood to “get discovered” and end up in porn and go no further too?

I still dont understand why we take hollywood actor people serious, majority of them are trash and would turn one dime on the public when money's on the line.

I would be willing to bet that the accusers were told “Take this settlement your you’ll never work in this business again.”

If this wasnt about money the accusers would refuse this and any other deal like this. They wouldnt be satisfied with anything but personal accountability from him. This settlement provides neither financial or personal responsibility from him.

A bird in the hand is better than two in the bushes. Do yourself a favor, take the money, have a holiday, and let this chapter come to a close.

It was a $47 million settlement. $20 million will pay for Weinstein's lawyers.
