Harvey Weinstein’s name has been included in several major headlines since the scandalous sexual charges against him back in October 2017. Over 80 women in Hollywood and the movie industry came forward and accused the producer of sexual abuse, harassment, and rape.

These accusations have since started a chain reaction in Hollywood, as many women and men came forward and confessed to the sexual abuse that occurs inside of the film industries and Hollywood. It also started the #METOO movement and was one of the main reasons for the 2018 Golden Globe Blackout.

Since those allegations became public Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and several other associations and has completely disappeared from public view, until he was officially arrested on May 25th, 7 months after The New Yorker and The New York Times published accusations made by several women.

Now, Weinstein has once again made the headlines and for a reason that has made people all around the world furious & disgusted. Harvey Weinstein appeared in front of a judge earlier today for his first court appearance and has claimed not guilty for all of the sexual assault and rape charges against him.
