Harvey Weinstein is out, and brother Bob is in. The problem? He’s a pervert too.
Amanda Segel, a Hollywood producer, claims that brother Bob sexually harassed her to the point that lawyers had to be involved. Bob pestered her for months, ignoring her repeated rejections and begging for a date.
“No’ should be enough,” Segel told Variety. “After ‘no,’ anybody who has asked you out should just move on. Bob kept referring to me that he wanted to have a friendship. He didn’t want a friendship.”
The Weinstein Company is in trouble. The head pervert, Harvey, was forced to resign. If Bob succumbs to the same addictions, the company won’t survive. At the very least the name will have to change. The Weinstein name is as tarnished as Cosby’s.
Of course, Bob’s legal team was quick to deny the allegations.
“Variety’s story about Bob Weinstein is riddled with false and misleading assertions by Ms. Segel and we have the emails to prove it, but even if you believe what she says, it contains not a hint of any inappropriate touching or even any request for such touching,” attorney Bert Fields claimed.
“There is no way in the world that Bob Weinstein is guilty of sexual harassment, and even if you believed what this person asserts, there is no way it would amount to that.”
Who knows? Maybe being a creep runs in the family.
