Wait – did someone say sleazebag in handcuffs? You bet they did. As we all know Harvey Weinstein did the perp walk this morning after turning himself in on rape charges, and of course it dominated the news cycle.
It was only yesterday that we told you that 80 yr. old Morgan Freeman has been accused by at least eight women of sexual misconduct. However, today marks a new day in Tinseltown as Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has finally been arrested for his own longstanding sexual abuse allegations.
In fact, one could say that this is one of of the biggest take-downs in Hollywood history and social media was rightly overjoyed at the sight of seeing dirtbag of dirtbags finally in handcuffs.
Harvey Weinstein in handcuffs being arraigned for rape is one of the most satisfying moments of 2018 for me. Up there with Bill Cosby’s conviction. Here’s Weinstein’s perp walk: https://t.co/WCBmHcVXdT

Mr. Weinstein is possibly looking at 37 years in prison. His council told reporters that Weinstein “intends to enter a plea of not guilty.” Prosecutors asked for Weinstein to not only give up his passport to avoid flight risk, but also requested that he agree to a GPS monitoring device. He was charged with rape, criminal sex act, sexual abuse as well as sexual misconduct for incidents involving two separate women. There are likely more charges to come. According to his attorney, Weinstein posted $1 million bail in cash.

Overwhelmed watching Harvey Weinstein’s perp walk. Burst into tears. It’s a great start but still so much work to do.

Many kudos to Rose McGowan who had the guts stand up against Weinstein since the saga began.
We got you, Harvey Weinstein, we got you

This seems like theater. The average person likely wouldn’t be “walking out” of a precinct with or without handcuffs, we’d be behind bars.

Wow! how the mighty have fallen.Once called God by Meryl Streep.Weinstein’s days of freedom are ending.Amazing how the most powerful man in Hollywood who had the control to make or crush peoples dreams has become a nightmare. Hollywood was complicit in protecting him for decades.
