Most Helpful Guy
It's pretty tragic. However, I find it pretty hypocritical of a lot of people in Hollywood to be finger-pointing each other right now. Apparently, most people in the industry knew about this, so they are ALL to blame for not doing more to stop it: both men and women with any influence who knew about it or heard about it.
For example, if what happened to Rose McGowan is true, it was wrong what Weinstein did to her. However, while she calls out people like Ben Affleck now, Rose McGowan herself kept quiet about Weinstein until recently... but not only that, she even did business with him after what happened: going to red carpet-type events and taking pictures with him and embracing and smiling like good friends. In a way, she herself became complicit in allowing the same thing to happen to other women.
Brad Pitt and Jimmy Kimmel are some of the few men right now who are being praised for calling out Harvey Weinstein in the past (Pitt threatened to beat up Weinstein for harassing Gwyneth Paltrow 20 years ago, and Kimmel cracked a joke about Weinstein 3 years ago). However, as far as I'm concerned, while they're definitely not the worst guys in this scandal, they still share some blame too. If they knew about this, why didn't they do more than that? Brad Pitt is one of Hollywood's biggest stars and also a producer. Jimmy Kimmel is one of the most famous comedians. I'm not saying that Pitt or Kimmel needed to individually launch a war against Weinstein, but just a LITTLE MORE from everyone in Hollywood would have helped a lot.
Angelina Jolie could have done more too: she is one of the world's most famous stars, and also a producer and director. If she had talked about this more at any point in the last 15 years, people would have listened and maybe Weinstein could have been stopped sooner.
Honestly, this reminds me of that scene in "Wonder Woman" where Steve Trevor explains that "we are all to blame".1
