Director Oliver Stone on Friday seemingly defended movie producer Harvey Weinstein against the sexual harassment allegations, but when he received backlash for his comments, he immediately withdrew his support.
Stevens on Twitter wrote, “When I heard about Harvey, I recalled Oliver walking past me & grabbing my boob as he walked out the front door of a party.
Stone, in an updated statement, revealed that his position on the Weinstein scandal had changed, saying that he was “appalled.”
“After looking at what has been reported in many publications over the last couple of days,” Stone continued,”I’m appalled and commend the courage of the women who’ve stepped forward to report sexual abuse or rape.”
He concluded by noting that he will no longer be involved with the production of Showtime’s upcoming “Guantanamo” TV series as long as the Weinstein Company is involved.
When I heard about Harvey, I recalled Oliver walking past me & grabbing my boob as he walked out the front door of a party. Two of a kind!
