Former President Barack Obama recently with public with his disgust of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The movie mogul and major Democratic donor was recently fired from the Weinstein Company, of which he was a co-founder, amid the investigation of the allegations against him.
“Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein,” Obama said in the statement. “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status. We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories. And we all need to build a culture — including by empowering our girls and teaching our boys decency and respect — so we can make such behavior less prevalent in the future.”
Weinstein company has raised and donated millions for Democratic leaders over the years, many have begun to return the money and are beginning to distant themselves from the ousted movie mogul.
