Thanking Harvey Weinstein… The Reaction?

Harvey Weinstein producer of Time

Harvey Weinstein to get same treatment as Woody Allen?

After The New York Times came out with an article about Harvey Weinstein’s 30-year spree of sexual harassment and assault, there are still people openly thanking the movie producer on social media for his work, particularly for movie projects that would otherwise may have had a hard time getting made.

Thanks #JayZ and #HarveyWeinstein for producing this. #KaliefBrowder I LOVE YOU MAN! ❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️ #instadocumentary #instamovie #documentaryfilm #instanetflix #instafilm

In this particular example, the gratitude is for Time: The Kalief Browder Story, a documentary that has as its executive producers not only Harvey Weinstein, but also Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and David Glasser. The production company? The Weinstein Company.
