Lin-Manuel Miranda Responds To Harvey Weinstein News

Harvey Weinstein has been accused of decades of sexual harassment and lewd behavior towards female employees, colleagues, and reporters. In response, men and women of Hollywood have begun speaking out against him and his vile actions. But some are staying uncomfortably silent. The Guardian reached out to Weinstein collaborators including actors Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Colin Firth, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Russell Crowe, George Clooney and Ewan McGregor, and directors Tarantino, Russell, Ryan Coogler, Tom Hooper, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michael Moore, Rob Marshall, Robert Pulcini, Garth Davis, Doug McGrath, John Madden, Simon Curtis, Kevin Williamson, Martin Scorsese, John Hillcoat and John Wells. None gave comment.

Now, silence does not mean they knew anything of Weinstein’s grotesque pattern of abuse, nor does it mean they are mutely defending him. But it’s not a good look. And while we might not expect much from some of the men on this list, the silence of others fucking stings. But this morning, one of our Pajiba favorites took to Twitter to publicly respond.

Props to Miranda for not only responding, but also taking responsibility for his initial lack of response, and not blaming his publicity team.
