Joe Biden has once again proven himself a true people’s champions with yet another empowering speech on human rights, this time about the Harvey Weinstein allegations. “It is my hope there are more consequences. It is my hope the statute hasn’t run on some allegations, because this man deserves more than losing his company,” Biden said.
Biden made his first public remarks about Weinstein the night before during the Anti-Violence Project Courage Awards in New York City, after receiving an award for his work on behalf of the LGBTQ community.
Biden went on to describe the “disgusting conduct and behavior of a very powerful figure in Hollywood – a man who had the power to make or break the career of a number of very talented actors; a man who used that power in a disgusting and immoral way.”
Biden also took the time to honor the brave women who put their careers at risk in order to bring the “disgusting behavior, at least on the part of Harvey Weinstein, has been brought to an abrupt and justifiable end.”
“Silence,” he informed them, “is complicity. Silence is consent.”
