Samantha Bee did not hold back her feelings towards Harvey Weinstein in light of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him, and warned other “creeps of Hollywood” that women “are coming for you.”
The host of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” started her show on Wednesday by addressing the “huge week for women” that had just passed, and discussed Weinstein’s “apology-like statement” when he said, “I have got to change, I’ve got to grow… I know a lot of people would like me to go into a facility.”
“Oh my God, I’m so behind on the slang. Is a ‘facility’ what people call hell?” Bee said in response.
Bee then focused on the statement he had released following last Thursday’s New York Times exposé, which detailed three decades of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he propositioned actresses and harassed female employees. In the statement, he said, “I came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different.”
“Oh give me a break, white Cosby!” Bee said. “Nobody asked for your ‘all about me mea culpa.’ Don’t blame the ’60s and ’70s for your sh—y decision-making. It’s serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo.”
Bee also honed in on Republicans for ignoring the scandal and “popping a few Tic-Tacs” while “mov[ing] on the Weinstein scandal like a b—- for partisan gain.”
“I mean, look, both parties have their share of sexual harassers and predators. This is about men,” she said. “Sorry ‘woke bros,’ but guys can be creeps. Hashtag: NotAllMen.”
She showed recent headlines pertaining to sexual abuse all over the world, even Antarctica, and said it’s “no wonder Harvey thinks the entertainment industry will support him.”
“So listen up, creeps of Hollywood. We know who you are,” Bee said. “Weinstein isn’t the only cool Democrat lurking in film festival hotels waiting to play a jolly masturbation prank. Women talk to each other and we talk to journalists and we talk to lawyers. It’s 2017! We don’t have to put up with this s—! We are coming for you.”
