Another woman SPEAKS now — yet she put Fame & Fortune above Doing The Right Thing at the time. We know Weinstein is a creep. It’s nice to know all the gold-diggers who didn’t have the COURAGE to stand up.
Thurman said in an interview with the NY Times, “All these lambs walked into slaughter because they were convinced nobody rises to such a position who would do something illegal to you, but they do.” No, Ms. Thurman, they walked into slaughter because YOU did not have the COURAGE to speak up.
Thurman added, “I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did.” Correct! You ENABLED this predator and allowed him to hurt more young women. Your negligence contributed to their suffering.

Women say, “Yeah, we might have lost a job!” Welcome to a Man’s World. My buddies went to Vietnam; my dad served in Korea; my grandfathers battled Hitler or the Kaiser in world wars. My GG grandfather earned the Congressional Medal of Honor serving the Union Army at Vicksburg freeing Black Americans from slavery. They didn’t have the luxury of NOT doing the right thing.
Men STOOD UP. Some of them lost blood; some lost limbs; some lost their life. Women are afraid they MIGHT lose a F***ing job!
Her friend, Ilona Herman, reported Thurman later tried to confront Weinstein, but he allegedly threatened to ruin her career as an actress. If one has talent, the “Cream Rises to the Top.” She would have found another job. Her road might have been more difficult but doing the RIGHT THING usually is.
