They didn't tell, and god knows why. But piping now, doesn't do jack shit, when it would have been years and years ago.
To be fair you don’t know that. Maybe the combined weight of accusations now will result in criminal proceedings where 10-15 years ago the individual cases would have been crushed by Weinstein’s likely very well resourced legal team.
Witherspoon’s story adds more to the story than all the metoo hashtags though. She was 16, certainly not a-list, and a child in US law when she was assaulted by a director. She didn’t keep quiet but her advisors told her she should. She was a child. Her advisors, part of the Hollywood machine, helped perpetuate this by choosing to protect the income stream ahead of the child they had in their care. For me that’s the story, not individual thugs like Big Harv, but the institutional fear of rocking the boat, because the cheques might stop. That’s the place where predators hang out.
