Meryl Streep calls Harvey Weinstein 'pathetic' for using her name in lawsuit

Harvey’s lawyers Not all women hate Weinstein — ask

They lawyers said that the alleged assaults took place too long ago.

Meryl Streep has branded Harvey Weinstein "pathetic".

This was stemming from a lawsuit filed against the Miramax founder by six women, namely Zoe Brock, Sarah Ann Masse, Melissa Sagemiller, Katherine Kendall, Louisette Geiss, and Nannette Klatt, alleging Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Online, Weinstein's attorney-at-law stated the lawsuit is "fatally overbroad", and the allegations should be "dismissed or stricken in their entirety". Bosses at the production company are seeking to have the lawsuit against them dismissed and now Weinstein is referencing his working relationships with the likes of Streep and Gwyneth Paltrow to prove his innocence and have the suit tossed.

The lawsuit was filed by six women who claim Weinstein and his former film companies conspired to hide his widespread sexual harassment and assaults. The Post star's past public statements, in which she revealed Weinstein had "always been respectful" towards her, are included in his latest legal action - and Meryl is not amused.

The documents stated: "As drafted, they would include all women who ever met with Weinstein, regardless of whether they claimed to have suffered any identifiable harm as a result of that meeting". In interviews since the early days of the Weinstein scandal started unfolding, Lawrence said the news made her feel "sick in my bones", and Streep has said, "The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar".

Let's speculate in comments, because in the multiverse, every possibility you can imagine is already happening. This all started out on June 19, 1998 when The Walt Disney Company released the animated feature film Mulan .

Jennifer Lawrence and Gwyneth Paltrow have yet to respond to the inclusion of their comments in Harvey Weinstein's defense.

In October, Paltrow accused Weinstein of unwanted sexual advances in a hotel room when she was 22 and shooting "Emma".

Weinstein's response to the lawsuit comes as he and his lawyers want the case dismissed, following a previous response from The Weinstein Company which put blame for the alleged harassment claims exclusively on the producer himself. If Weinstein thinks he will win by twisting women's words against them, he fails to understand the law on sexual assault and the depravity of his own conduct.

At least 75 women have told the news media that Weinstein harassed, behaved inappropriately toward them or assaulted them.
