Leonardo DiCaprio Releases Statement About Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Leonardo DiCaprio has released a statement about Harvey Weinsten‘s multiple sexual harassment allegations.

The 42-year-old actor took to Facebook to release a statement slamming the 65-year-old producer, while applauding the women have spoken out against him.

“There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault β€” no matter who you are and no matter what profession. I applaud the strength and courage of the women who came forward and made their voices heard,” Leo wrote.

Earlier that same day, it was revealed that Harvey‘s wife Georgina Chapman is leaving him while it was reported that he will enter a treatment facility.

    This rich from the Pussy Posse man. He knew all along.

    1. I doubt there are many people in Hollywood who didn’t know about it.
    2. How is it rich coming from him? He is a womanizer not an abuser.

    too little too late

    People are dragging him for this super generic statement. I get it but at the same time it’s like whatever, at least he said something. People were calling him out for saying nothing and then when he does people still complain or bring up how he only dates young models. We all know Leo’s attitudes towards women is questionable but as far as we know, he’s definitely not a rapist?! He didn’t even comment on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy and rarely comments on anything not related to the environment so I’m surprised he addressed this.

    Wow I had no idea Ben Affleck did this to her. I remember when she was on TRL

    So what was he supposed to do to please you? πŸ™„

  • pppf

    I don’t expect any celebrities to make a statement. Yea, his response was pretty generic and he didn’t mention his name, but so what. I would rather celebrities like Ben and Matt to remain silent than lie. I would rather all celebrities to remain silent than lie if they actually knew about this. I have a feeling this story is going to grow and is going to be harder to kill than Kudzu.

  • pppf

    But there are other stories going around about Ben. Like his personal meeting and casting of Emily R. in Gone Girl. Don’t know if it’s true, but she is hardly a great, or even good, actress. But there are stories that she is questionable as well.

  • also…

    Emily who? You mean he used the same techniques as Harvey. I heard the same about Blake and that’s how she wound up getting the role on the town because that part was written for an older actress.

  • pppf

    I don’t know if it was Harvey techniques, because I have read here and there Emily Ratajkowski has “escort” techniques, so I think she might have been a willing candidate. Once again, it’s just a rumor. But the Affleck’s don’t have the best reputation, so who knows.

  • calafeast

    lol, are all these idiot Hollywood bimbos all use the same publicist? “It is appalling/I applaud the courage”… All the same insincere bs.

    Leo is a pussy hound but he knew about The Pig and did nothing.

    The hypocrisy from these libs, especially the new faux feminists is mindboggling. Now what?

    Go on whine on their threads. 😏

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! I see the trolls are out in force:(
    Re statement – yes it was generic, but I think he was basically forced to issue one.
    I think no matter what he said, people are going to complain. Damned if you do- damned if you don’t. Smh :/

    What did I wake up to? Is this true about Ben and Matt? I must have missed out on this info, where was this posted? I’m glad Leo’s PR did respond, however vague and delayed a reply we got at least they said something.

  • meme

    Go away

  • xica

    And do they think he’s going to heal in a treatment facility after letting him through all these years harass women over and over again? A little too late. He’s 65 not 35. I think he wants to avoid jail or a bigger fine.

    As for Leo, I think the ones to speak are the victims who are already adults. What he said was just correct and this topic doesn’t personally affect him.

    The first tweet you posted is from LA. This one could be a lookalike in the club. I mean that girl trying to hook up with Leo? lol I guess if he is back here there will be more sightings

  • also…

    Well her friend samxtina on ig stories mentions Leo too. The tweet I posted last night was from yesterday morning in LA. I just saw both Nir and Milano were clubbing last night too.

  • Miss Plum

    TY for your statement Leo <3 I"m so glad he said something!

  • Miss Plum

    the only treatment for rapists is JAIL. but we know rich old white guys rarely end up there

  • Miss Plum

    You guys know I called it long ago! Matt Damon = douche

  • xica

    I think he was a shameless man taking advantage of his position and who didn’t want to gift people with money, attention and fame. I agree with you, jail is the only punishment and even with this I dont think he’ll ever regret it. He’s made too much money and got on his way too many times for too long.

  • Miss Plum

    He still doesn’t think he did anything wrong!!!

  • xica

    That industry is so sexist. I bet he never did anything wrong to any man. That attention, money and fame are overrated. In the end very few end up stable. And people can truly be happier without such amounts of money, fame and attention. In fact that doesn’t give you true happiness.

  • girl93

    Good Leo!

  • Tai

    I want to vomit. I hope Leo doesn’t turn out to be one of these.

  • disqus_uN3MzXJ8zT

    Can what Leo and his posse did to Elizabeth Berkley/her boyfriend in the late 90′s be considered sexual harassment? AW is bringing it up.

  • Tai

    ? I haven’t heard about this.

    It was a shitty thing to do and it’s disappointing to read. But I’m not going to hold it against him for the rest of his life.

  • Tai

    I know what you mean, they were young.

  • chaz

    I hate to say it because I love Leo, I really do, but I’m sure he has some skeletons in his closet regarding women too. Maybe someday it will come out, maybe it won’t…it took this long for Harvey to be accused. Even terry crews mentioned another person but didn’t say his name….even bill Cosby…
    But Leo and the former PP and now the wolves with dozens of women always around….you just never know…and no, I don’t think people would just come forward.

  • also…

    From what I remember of the story Jay Ferguson was the one harassing her on the phone because he was the one after her and he threw the punch. Whether Leo encouraged him or not who knows. The guy sued Leo either way because he was the one of who had money. Nothing indicates Leo was the one harrassing her. What they did was wrong and Leo needs to pick better friends. Who you hang out with can reflect bad on you.
