A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jessica Chastain, Mark Ruffalo and George Clooney have all come brazen criticising Weinstein.

“The infamous news about Harvey Weinstein has confounded those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and estimable causes he supported,” pronounced Streep, who has worked with the writer in several films.

“I was warned from the beginning. The stories were everywhere,” tweeted Chastain.

“To repudiate that is to create an sourroundings for it to occur again.”
