Harvey Weinstein Jay-Z
 

“If you could write this letter backing me… it would help me a lot…

With all due respect, I need the letter today”

 

Embattled film producer Harvey Weinstein reached out in quiet desperation to A-list stars and Hollywood execs begging them to save his job.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Weinstein, who was fired from his own company on Sunday, sent a flurry of emails to top Hollywood execs and studio heads, saying, “I am desperate for your help.”

The emails were sent to “high-level Hollywood executives at the studios, networks and talent agencies,” according to THR.

Other sources claim Weinstein reached out in desperation to a former U.S. president and a high-profile rapper and his wife for help.

Weinstein, who must have known his job was in jeopardy, promised he would take a leave of absence and seek therapy for his decades long predatory behavior towards women.

“My board is thinking of firing me,” the email began.

“All I’m asking, is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling. Whether it be in a facility or somewhere else, allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance. A lot of the allegations are false as you know but given therapy and counseling as other people have done, I think I’d be able to get there.”

He pleaded with his friends to write a letter stating their opposition to the board firing him.

The letters were to be sent to his private Gmail address, and they “would only go to the board and no one else.”

Weinstein added that he believed “what the board is trying to do is not only wrong but might be illegal and would destroy the company.”

“With all due respect, I need the letter today,” he concluded.

It isn’t clear if any of his friends responded to his desperate pleas.

CNN points out that Weinstein’s friends, the Obamas and the Clintons, “remain mum” on their support for him, at least publicly.

Former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton received thousands of dollars in donations from Weinstein indirectly through the Democratic National Committee.

On Sunday, Weinstein was unceremoniously terminated from the company he co-founded with his brother Bob in 2005. Sources say the Hollywood mogul believes his brother was in on his dramatic downfall.

    Why does everyone need to speak on everything?

    No one is speaking on Trump being a womanizer, how is about to cause World War III, how he acts like pubescent 12 year old teen and specifically how is NOT fit to run this country. And the brave few that do or admonished and or fired.

  • lovelygamour

    I dont think he ra-/ped anyone. as far as the unwanted sexual touching and displays. The women knew. the guys do gross things to see if you are game. If you arent you shut it down right then. Guy starts talking sexy say, “thats funny but not for me”. Some of these women have no acting chops. They soley get roles based on connections. Maybe i’m just bitter but you laughed and got the roles, kept working with them, then when you move on its a problem. Like with fox news. Most of the ancors had no experience-shep smith was a weather dude that was playing in (I think) ailes hotel room. These fox news women are awful themselves in real life(on set) and now they complain when they got the millions and he cant help THEM. The staff couldve used support from him and them. –i will be nice and say fox news teaches a lot/ you gain a lot of experience fast.
    My problem with mr weinstein is the threats to ruin a person. The violence. Nobody talked about it because it sounds whimpy and go work someplace else. I want those stories to come out. Funny and sad.
    mr w got a lot of people rolling. Greenlit a lot of projects that no one would touch.
    Maybe i’m jaded after the bill cosby thing. How do you as a grown person keep hanging out with him if he assulted you. How do you prosecute someone for something that happened 45 yrs ago. Being in the business I understand not being able to talk but you dont go back by yourself years later. And I dont think a white women had anything to fear telling on cosby back in the ’70s.
    End rant but if you cant cut it in open audition just go home. A few succeed but you are just going to be “that girl” with a few forgettable roles and a star turn that you couldnt hack.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Therapy and counseling isn’t going to help him. It’s who he is… It’s deep rooted within his DNA. Counseling is just a band-aid. NEXT…

  • lovelygamour

    They couldve reigned him in. They liked that he took creative risks.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Who did this white man piss off? He must have touched the *wrong* one….you know they rarely go in this hard on their own. Any who, this is all rich people problems. He will be fine financially and will just go about doing his dirt in Southeast Asia or some ish.

    Still trying to figure out how they trying to reverse his action on Hilary and Obama. They talk about that more than they talk about what he did. Any other time they will tell them to sit down and be quiet and their favorite quote “they still haven’t gotten over the election lost”. They wanna hear what they gotta say on this mess but don’t wanna hear anything they have to say about foreign policy Dump who gets his foreign policy experience from watching Sunday news shows sending us to war with North Korea.

  • TheOwley

    It’s ironic that in a round about way he acknowledges the rehab BS in his letter. I’ll just go through the process, get declared healed, and the world will be right again. He sounds like an amateur.

  • We Can Do This

    He should get all the therapy and counseling he disires in prison. They love to issue their own punishment.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So he’s beggnig for help now… But what about all those women he
    allegedly sexually harassed and assaulted over the years? Sorry, no sympathy at all for you, Harvey.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You don’t think he raped anyone? You might feel differently after reading the New Yorker story that just came out:

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, he’s a big Donald Trump guy, so…

  • We Can Do This

    Sounds like a serial rapist to me.

    I wonder how long will it take for him to disclose his inner circle of rape pals? If something doesn’t happen to him before hand.

  • You Could Never

    Yes. But I think he is getting fired. They already tried once.

    I dont think ESPN is all about race right now. It is but it then again it isnt. Ive been reading the past day or so and Its an undertone. But they are pretty much trying to save their network. Any means nessc.

  • TheOwley

    That letter is pathetic and amateurish. You can tell it was written by a bully. He should have called the creators of South Park for help composing that thing because Eric Cartman would have done a better job with it. The fact that this letter leaked, and the audiotape of him accosting a woman is telling. TPTB don’t just want him gone, they want his goose cooked. If those women that didn’t settle decide to sue him later on, his company could be on the hook as well.

  • Satin Panther

    LOL..I was literally just thinking about the same thing. What powerful H-Weird player did he pi$$ off bcuz these huge successful producers/directors/execs in Hollywood is exempted from paying for their consequence just ask that ped0 director from X’Men Bryan Singer that was accused of drugging and raping young men while promising them a shot at stardom. smh

  • NicoleZee

    This happens all the time in the workplace, no surprise here, but I bet it happens even more in Hollywood. Weinstein is finished. He’s gross and probably impotent, so the only way he can get women is to bully and harass them into being with him. He’s disgusting and so is his wife for putting up with him. How any woman can be attracted to a fat unattractive man is beyond me. Guess his wife was desperate to have someone. Yuck!

  • klwbaby

    Money and financial stability can make the most repulsive gremlin looking bastard attractive to some people.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I just heard the alleged audio from Weinstein and his accuser …creepy af!
    They better put him on suicide watch ASAP, I don’t think he can take losing his position of power.

  • the guest

    Wealthy powerful sexist white male Jews in Hollywood don’t get terminated and blacklisted for sexually harassing women.

    Obviously, one of the white women he harassed is either the daughter or relative of, married to, or in a relationship with a white man more wealthy and powerful in Hollywood than Weinstein so justice is being served.

    Hollywood doesn’t give a darn about women and sexual harassment. This is about white men and power.

    Someone white, male, more wealthy, and more powerful wants his company and the sexual harassment settlements are a scapegoat.

  • the guest

    Yep.
    Hollywood is the sexual harassment capital of the world. When a white man gets fired for sexual harassment that an excuse for something else to do with business and money.

  • the guest

    I agree. Not making excuses for him. But I think he is seriously and sincerely despondent. Powerful men rarely come undone and beg for help in writing no less. He is in need of help.

  • nick c

    That’s definitely desperate no one else survived roger ailes, O’Reilly, Uber CEO, what made him think he was going to keep his job? He knows how deep the rabbit hole goes might as well resigned before worst allegations come out.
