Stacey Dash Says Oprah and Meryl Streep “Knew” About Harvey Weinstein’s Behavior
Stacey Dash is speaking her mind.
Just a few days after she was slammed by Seal, the former actress is speaking out about Oprah Winfrey and whether or not she was aware of Harvey Weinstein’s inappropriate behavior.
Not only does the Clueless star believe Oprah knew about Harvey’s indiscretions, she thinks Meryl Streep was also aware.
“I won’t walk back what I believe. Oprah the homecoming queen, prom queen and class president knew,” she said according to theJasmineBRAND.
“Meryl, the high school drama star knew. Most of those women wearing black knew. The class clown, Seth MacFarlane knew,” she shared.
“He joked about it a few years ago on the Oscars, Hollywood’s equivalent of the prom. You know how I can say this? BECAUSE I KNEW.”
The 50-year-old also revealed she knew not to meet Harvey alone when she was a young actress.
“So how ‘clueless’ am I? I knew enough when meeting Harvey Weinstein, to bring a male chaperone and it paid off as he did make a move on me,” she said.
“My chaperone blocked him and said, ‘Not this one.’ You can read all about it here. My chaperone knew.”
Because she knew about the big Hollywood producer’s behavior, she has a hard time believing others did not.
“So how did this ‘nobody’ know about Harvey Weinstein, and the popular, powerful mogul, Oprah Winfrey did not? How did the Oscar-laden ‘Iron Lady’ Meryl Streep not know?” she asked.
“Hollywood is one big, dark, John Hughes movie. Some of us sit with the regular kids. Some are the outsiders. However, the cool kids sit at the cool kids lunch table and they talk.”
She also shared her opinions on all the recent sexual assault allegations coming out of Hollywood.
“Here’s what it comes down to. If you have been truly assaulted. If you have been threatened, molested, attacked, forced into unwanted nudity, had any part of your body touched that made your skin crawl or worse…your first stop is law enforcement,” she said.
“Granted, some women did do this. They were turned away. They were ignored because some officials might have been paid off. They felt they had no other recourse than to go to the press.”
She continued, “So be it. However, what was a necessary course of action by some has turned into a lemming drive where now accusations can be hurled and men are demonized and fired and ruined.”
