Harvey Weinstein (born March 19, 1952) is an American former film producer and convicted sex offender. He and his brother Bob Weinstein co-founded the entertainment company Miramax, He's also the founder of The Weinstein Company. He is infamous for not just being a sex offender, but also like Tom Rothman and Kevin Spacey has made some dumb decisions that upset almost everyone even before he got exposed.

Why He Sucks Now

  1. He's not just bad for being a sex offender, but to anyone around him.
    • First off, as his brother Bob has pointed out, he has a history of verbal abuse to his family.
    • Even as far back as the late 1980s, he had been doing criminal activities like rape and sexual harassment.
    • Related to being a sex offender, he treats other girls as a pet, and not only that, he also called out Roman Polanski who is infamous for doing sexual abuse yet he himself is doing the same thing as Polanski which makes him a hypocrite.
  2. Like Tom Rothman, he makes some dumb decisions that upset almost everyone even before being exposed.
    • He is notorious for ordering recuts to films without the consent of their respective directors, to the point he was nicknamed "Harvey Scissorhands" and "Darth Weinstein".
    • He did re-editing and re-dubbing of films like Farewell My Concubine and tried to do edits on Princess Mononoke which lead to Hayao Miyazaki arguing with him and led to the film being given a limited US theatrical release thanks to him.
      • Due to Miyazaki's disappointment with Warriors of the Wind, Manson International and Showmen, Inc.'s edit of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Miyazaki adopted a strict "no edits" policy on future foreign releases of Studio Ghibli films. On hearing Weinstein would attempt to edit Princess Mononoke to make it more marketable, producer Toshio Suzuki allegedly mailed an authentic katana bundled with a simple message: "no cuts".
    • He was also the one who made the infamous American dub of The Magic Roundabout, not Butch Hartman.
    • During his time at Miramax, he did some pretty ruthless Oscar campaigns which led to films like Shakespeare in Love winning over the much renowned Saving Private Ryan.
      • In 2003, he was so determined to have Chicago win the Academy Award for Best Picture that he tried to blackmail Roman Polanski, the director of The Pianist (which ended up winning), by further investigating his infamous sexual abuse case with Samantha Geimer, which is totally hypocritical considering that he raped and abused much more people than Polanski as previously pointed out.
    • When his company Miramax couldn't get enough money to fund The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he wanted to mesh it into one two-hour movie, cutting many scenes such as the Battle of Helm's Deep and even Saruman. Thankfully, Peter Jackson thought otherwise and sent it to New Line instead.
    • He stole Richard Williams' The Thief and the Cobbler when it was nearing completion and created a disastrous recut of it.
    • He recast most of the original cast for Hoodwinked! in the hopes of attracting a bigger audience. While this was a good idea, as pointed out by director Cory Edwards, just the names of two or three celebrities in the poster was enough to attract the audience, and this caused the original actors to receive zero credit for their improvisations, which were copied by the new actors, who in turn weren't allowed to improvise as the animation was about to be finished.
  3. He is infamous for being ruthless and has fits of anger when someone doesn't agree with him which shows he can't take criticism.
  4. After being exposed, he tried to make up by doing the so-called "apology" by funding the NRA. However, it is revealed that there is no evidence of him having donated money to any gun control groups.
    • Like Amber Heard, he has no remorse for what he has done proves that he's a sociopath.
    • He's not sorry for what he did. He's only sorry he got exposed.
  5. He gives not just his family a bad name, but he also gives the Democratic Party a bad name since he's a supporter of such.
  6. His actions are responsible for making the rise of the MeToo Movement, which ruined entertainment, masculinity, sports, politics, astronomy, religion and many other fields.
  7. He started to treat his fans like complete garbage.
  8. He was also verbally abusive with his own family members, according to his brother Bob.
  9. Much like John Kricfalusi, he treated his co-workers and colleagues very badly.
  10. He permanently killed The Weinstein Company, which went bankrupt and out of business in 2018 after he was fired from the company in October 2017, and the company's assets were acquired by Lantern Capital Partners to become Lantern Entertainment.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. He used to be an actually nice person who cared about others during the early days of his career.
  2. Despite his actions, he did greenlight some good/decent movies while he was an executive producer such as Spy Kids, Good Will Hunting, Scream, Scary Movie, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Shakespeare in Love, The English Patient, Django Unchained, etc.

Indeed him and Chris R Sabat are examples of a wolf in sheep's clothing as they are nice when you meet them on the outside. But on the inside they are monster's who like to treat other girls as pets.

Agreed and the name Weinstein would be used the same way as Quisling for predator or rapist.

By seeing that he treated his fans like complete trash, I can tell that he disrespected his fans, just like Justin Bieber, and that's another celebrity I really dislike and detest.

(unpopular opinion) The Democratic campaign is so stupid that they made the covid vaccine instead of a cure and lets a bunch of illegal aliens into our country.
