Samantha Bee Warns Hollywood ‘Creeps’ Amid Weinstein Scandal: ‘We Are Coming For You’
On Wednesday night, Samantha Bee held nothing back against disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Bee tackled his “apology-like statement” when he said “I have got to change, I’ve got to grow… I know a lot of people would like me to go into a facility.”
“Oh my God, I’m so behind on the slang. Is a ‘facility’ what people call hell?” Bee asked.
The Full Frontal host went after Weinstein’s remarks about growing up in the ’60s and ’70s as an excuse for his behavior.
“Oh give me a break, white Cosby!” Bee reacted. “Nobody asked for your ‘all about me mea culpa.’ Don’t blame the ’60s and ’70s for your sh*tty decision-making. It’s serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo.”
She called out Republicans for “popping a few Tic-Tacs,” and “mov[ing] on the Weinstein scandal like a b**ch” for political partisan gain.
“I mean look, both parties have their fair share of sexual harassers and predators. This is about men,” Bee continued. “Sorry ‘woke bros,’ but guys can be creeps. #NotAllMen.”
Bee went on about how sexual harassment is prevalent in every profession and as she pointed out, it even occurs in Antartica.
“You can’t even go to the most remote part of the planet without some dude swinging his cold, shriveled d**k your way!” Bee said.
She did express some hope as showbiz is “finally starting to clean house.”
“So listen up, creeps of Hollywood. We know who you are,” Bee warned. “Weinstein isn’t the only cool Democrat lurking at film festival hotels waiting to play a jolly masturbation prank. Women talk to each other and we talk to journalists and we talk to lawyers. It’s 2017! We don’t have to put up with this sh*t! We are coming for you.”
