Uma Thurman on Harvey Weinstein: “I’m glad it’s going slowly—you don’t deserve a bullet”
The Hollywood actress says #MeToo in a message on Instagram.
Uma Thurman has spoken about disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein, hitting out at both him and the "wicked conspirators" who enabled him to abuse and harass women over a number of decades.
Thurman, who worked on seven Weinstein films including the Tarantino-directed Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, wrote about him in a Thanksgiving message to fans on Instagram. She previously hinted at her feelings for the producer in a red carpet interview in October. On that occasion she said she was "too angry" to comment.
Posted alongside a picture of herself as the bride in Kill Bill, Thurman wrote that she was “grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others.”
She then appeared to confirm she had been a victim of sexual harassment and abuse while working as an actress. “I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so … Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators—I’m glad it’s going slowly—you don’t deserve a bullet).”
The message concluded with the words “stay tuned”, suggesting Thurman will make a further comment in the future.
Since Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a serial abuser this October he has been fired by the Weinstein Company. Earlier this month Asia Argento released a list of over 100 women who allege they were raped, assaulted, molested, and harassed by Weinstein
