Hollywood star Uma Thurman took to Twitter to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving Day — well, everyone except disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and his “wicked conspirators,” aka all the people who worked for years to protect him.
The Golden Globe Award-winning actress, who has worked with the alleged sexual predator on seven films including cult classics “Kill Bill” and “Pulp Fiction,” posted the message on social media along a picture of herself as The Bride from “Kill Bill.”
“I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others. I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face,” Thurman wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag victims of sexual abuse have been using to expose the magnitude of the problem.
“I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so … Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators — I’m glad it’s going slowly — You don’t deserve a bullet),” she continued. “Stay tuned.”
A number of female celebrities have accused Weinstein of sexual assault and misconduct — including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan, Lupita Nyong'o, Cara Delevingne and Thurman’s “Kill Bill” co-star Daryl Hannah, who said she had to barricade herself in her hotel room on one occasion to keep Weinstein out.
Hannah also said movie’s co-director Quentin Tarantino was among those who knew of the situation.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Tarantino admitted that through his decades working with Weinstein, he had become privy to his harassment of women — particularly young actresses.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” he reportedly said once the sexual abuse allegations surfaced against Weinstein. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”
Meanwhile, this is not the first time Thurman has made headlines with her statement about the disgraced Hollywood mogul.
In her viral interview with Access Hollywood earlier this month, Thurman said, “I don’t have a tidy sound bite for you because I’ve learned I am not a child and I have learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself. So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
Police in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, New York and London are currently carrying out investigations for alleged acts of sexual assault.
