(National Sentinel)Â Hollyweird: We’re learning more and more daily about the widening sexual assault scandal surrounding mogul producer Harvey Weinstein, and it’s getting uglier all the time.
Now, a longtime screenwriter, ScottÂ Rosenberg — whose filmography includes films like â€œGone inÂ 60 Seconds,â€ â€œBeautiful Girls,â€ and â€œHigh Fidelity” — has written a scathing Facebook post that’s going viral admitting that Weinstein’s proclivities wereÂ well known to the relatively small Hollywood community.
In his post, heÂ repeatedly said that everybody in Hollywood â€œf***ing knewâ€ what Weinstein had done, and would not stop doing, to women within the industry. What’s more, he apologized extensively for getting caught up in the mystique behind Weinsteinâ€™s â€œGolden Gooseâ€-like success.
He talked about the good, old days in Hollywood before apologizing about remaining silent and on the sidelines.
“I’ve worked with Mira [Sorvino] and Rosanna [Arquette] and Lysette [Anthony],â€ he wrote. â€œIâ€™ve known Rose [McGowan] and Ashley [Judd] and Claire [Forlani] for years â€¦ Their courage only hangs a lantern on my shame.â€
He noted that Weinstein would lavish gifts on him and treated him personally very well, but that should not excuse his silence.
â€œI reaped the rewards and I kept my mouth shut,â€ he said.Â â€œGod help me,â€ he added.
“Again,” he continued, “maybe we didnâ€™t know the degree. The magnitude of the awfulness. Not the rapes. Not the shoving against the wall. Not the potted-plant f***ing. But we knew something.”
As he wrapped up his missive, Rosenberg encouraged others to come forward and be honest for a change.
â€œYou should be sorry, too,â€Â Rosenberg added. â€œBecause I was there with you.â€
This latest admission really does make us wonder just how many more people not onlyÂ know about Weinstein’s behavior but also have the lurid details.
