Weinstein’s Brother: Harvey ‘a Very Sick Man’

After a flood of sexual harassment allegations, Harvey Weinstein’s younger brother and former business partner Bob Weinstein spoke out Tuesday about the accusations, calling his brother “a very sick man” and his remorse “hollow.”

“My brother Harvey is obviously a very sick man,” Bob told TMZ in a statement. “I’ve urged him to seek immediate professional help because he is in dire need of it. His remorse and apologies to the victims of his abuse are hollow. He said he would go away for help and has yet to do so.”

The statement comes in the wake of a now-infamous New York Times report that listed allegations of harassment of young women by Harvey Weinstein spanning three decades. The accusations involved top or aspiring actresses who met Weinstein on the premise of discussing a project.

Since the New York Times report, dozens of other women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, while actress Asia Argento and two other women accused the disgraced producer of rape.

The elder Weinstein has issued apologies for his behavior and has reportedly checked himself into rehab for sex addiction, while the FBI is reportedly pursuing its own investigation.

    What a joke. The liberals now label “sick” what they all know to be normal behavior in hollowood. Someone abusing their power and position to have sex with beautiful young women who knew EXACTLY what they were getting into with this overgrown slob of POS (and were completely ready and willing to engage). All I can say is he must’ve pissed someone off big time to now have everyone come out of the closet and attack now… did he suddenly start supporting our President???

      But the Liberal left would rather follow words of Trump! In my world, actions speak MUCH louder than words. Now watch them squirm!!!! Disgusting!!!

      It could be he did something like Bernie Madoff, did . Bernie was OK as long as he was stealing from non-jews. He stole from a synagogue , and his house of cards collapsed. It’s easy enough to transpose what Weinstein might have done, if you think about it.

    Let’s face it folks. The entertainment industry thinks it is royalty. They stand there on their stages at award ceremonies and try to tell us exactly how we should think about social issues, how and who to vote for and if we do not do what they say, they then get up there again and lecture us how bad we are. BOYCOTT Hollywood. No more movie going. No more renting movies. It is time we spank these primadonnas. It is working in the NFL. They are losing money. They are losing the fan base they took advantage of. It is time for America to reconnect with family and friends and stop spending your overtaxed money on actors and athletes.

      Janis, you are right. thank you. But also understand we are in an existential fight with the liberal left elites. And it is a decisive fight and will be a vicious fight as you can see in everything and every way they are attacking our President. Be STRONG and READY to fight.

    He should be in prison! His type doesn’t take the help, they just go back to doing it Again!!

      He’s hoping if he runs and hides in a rehab, the courts will have mercy, and essentially let him out on time served in the rehab.
      I happened to see Yasser Arafat in some pictures on Ebay. Then saw a picture of Weinstein unshaven for a few days. They look like brothers ??

        But his brother said he’s hiding out and not getting any help! He pulling a wiki leaks trick! He’s not enrolled in any clinic! He ran to avoid prison or help!

    If he didn’t have all his political connections and all that wealth he would be in prison by now.
