Legendary Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein will channel his anger at himself for allegedly sexually harassing women for the last 40 years into trying to take down the NRA and President Trump.
The New York Times reported that the Hollywood mogul has a number of former colleagues, including actress Ashley Judd, claiming that he made unwelcomed advances on them. The producer plans to take a leave of absence from work to "deal with this issue head on."
"I am going to need a place to channel that anger so I've decided that I'm going to give the NRA my full attention," Weinstein wrote in a statement. "I hope Wayne LaPierre will enjoy his retirement party. I'm going to do it at the same place I had my Bar Mitzvah."
He added, "I"m making a movie about our President, perhaps we can make it a joint retirement party."
Weinstein was accused of forcing women into sex or sexually harassing them in exchange for career advancement or a closer relationship with the Hollywood power player.
"I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it," he sorrily admitted. "Though I am trying to do better."
"I came of age in the 60's and 70's, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then," Weinstein added. "I have since learned it's not an excuse."
The statement further reveals that within the past year Weinstein has sought out the help of therapists as well as celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to "tutor" him.
In a separate statement, Bloom defended Weinstein's mission to right his wrongs. The lawyer wrote, "He has acknowledged mistakes he has made … He is an old dinosaur learning new ways."
