Jill Scott Reveals Her ‘Rude’ Experience With Harvey Weinstein
Jill Scott has added her voice to the plethora of women who have detailed their unfortunate experiences with studio executive Harvey Weinstein. On Friday (Oct. 20), the R&B singer went on her Twitter account to recall her past run-in with Weinstein who resigned from the board of the Weinstein Company.
In a series of tweets, Scott said that she stayed away from Weinstein after he made derogatory comments about her pregnancy. "When I met Harvey Weinstein, he was RUDE. In the NASTIEST tone he said 'Who told you to get pregnant?!' And rolled his eyes in disgust," she tweeted. "I stayed away from him after. Who acts that way towards a pregnant woman?? Power to all the women bullied by assholes. Power in general."
Scott's story adds to the nearly four dozen allegations of sexual misconduct from women whom Weinstein purportedly had contact with, including actress Lupita Nyong’o who opened up about her experience in the New York Times. The Oscar winner claims when she was a young actress, Weinstein had requested a massage from her in his bedroom while his kids were playing downstairs.
Reps for Weinstein has responded to Nyong'o's claims stating that the executive has a "different recollection of the events."
