Lawrence Jones on Harvey Weinstein: Hollywood Doesn't Call Out Their Own on Women's Rights
Lawrence Jones said that as Hollywood preached for years about women's rights it meanwhile neglected to call out one of its own, disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein was outed by over two dozen female accusers as a serial sexual assaulter and rapist whose attacks spanned three decades. Many of his victims were young actresses and models who worked for him.
"They knew this for years and said nothing," Jones, host at The Blaze said on "Fox & Friends Weekend."
"They even had bits in the award shows where they cracked jokes about this."
"Hollywood continues to talk about women's rights," he pointed out, "but you've got to call people in your own movement, and Harvey was a part of that movement."
Weinstein's sleazy behavior was a running joke in the industry for years before women came forward to accuse him.
