- Employees of the fallen Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein say not to have known that their boss was a 'sexual predator'. 'We had the idea that he was a skinny hunter who committed extravagant relationships. We did not know he was violent and a suspected rapist, 'they wrote in a letter published by The New Yorker.
The employees write because of their love for movies for the Weinstein Company to work. 'We knew our boss could be manipulative. We had no idea that he used his power to systematically encourage women to move, 'said the letter. 'We have nothing to hide. We are as angry and bewildered as you. '
The magazine states that some dozens of employees are behind the content of the anonymous letter. They do not step outside because they have signed confidentiality agreements. According to the magazine, it is unclear whether the former company of the now fired producer will take steps against staff coming out.
