Harvey Weinstein's "life ruined", his lawyer complains

He ruined his life all by himself. No sympathy.

I hope those legal fees and billable hours are worth making yourself look like a fool in public, Ms. Rotunno.

Imagine the feats of mental gymnastics one must perform to employ this argument for a fabulously wealthy white man, while other, non-rich, non-white men go to jail for 36 years (which is, quite literally, stealing somebody’s life from them) for stealing $50.

Of all the people to be, why would he want to choose that asshole?

As maddening as the “life ruined” concept is, I think this is even worse…

“No matter what happens to Harvey Weinstein, he will pay the biggest price there is"

This lawyer’s not just saying his life is “ruined”. She’s saying he’s paying a bigger “price” than any person that was sexual assaulted and any of the people that had their career ended by industry boycotts he led.

I don’t think there’s an anger gif that’s angry enough.

Go fuck yourself, Harvey. If you’d been doing that instead of trying to force other people to fuck you, your life wouldn’t be “ruined”, now would it?

“his whole life has been ruined”

If there were ever a case for criminalizing the passive voice…

Since the original post referenced the non-existence of this story I might as well reply to the now-no-longer-a-post with a link to help others who may have missed it:

Watched the movie Wind River, which was inspired by the real tragedy of violence against indigenous women, and shocked to see the Weinstein name associated with it (as distributor). According to Wikipedia they’ve cut ties and it’s now distributed through lionsgate, so that’s good at least.

I will state the obvious: unless he ends up in prison, or bankrupt and in the gutter then his life is not ruined. He can retire comfortably in some remote estate and live out his life in quiet but luxurious ignominy.
