One Harvey Weinstein accuser says she won't celebrate his arrest in a must-read thread

One Harvey Weinstein accuser says she won't celebrate his arrest in a must-read threadIn the days following Harvey Weinstein’s arrest, some within the entertainment industry have posted a statement released by Time’s Up — the organization created in the wake of the scandal.  Others, like actress Annabella Sciorra, have taken things a step further. Sciorra was one of the women to come forward in Ronan Farrow’s follow up stories featured in
The New Yorker. On Sunday, she shared that she felt the farthest thing from celebratory when she heard the initial news about his arrest.  SEE ALSO: Harvey Weinstein hands himself in to police in New York “The law finally caught up with Harvey Weinstein on Friday and charge him with multiple counts of rape and sexual assault,” she tweeted. “But nothing about that felt celebratory to me.”  The law finally caught up with Harvey Weinstein on Friday and charged him with multiple counts of rape and sexual assault. But nothing about that felt celebratory to me. — Annabella Sciorra (@AnnabellSciorra) May 27, 2018 “The smirk on his face as he was led out of the police station in cuffs made me physically sick,” she continued. “The public statement from his lawyer was intended only to denigrate all the brave women who came forward and spoke out against him.” “All that says is, money buys VIP treatment in the justice system no matter how serious or violent the crimes,” she tweeted, after referencing his “million dollar bond.”  Compare that to the case of Kalief Browder, who was denied bail after being accused of a misdemeanor, then spent four years in Rikers, over half of it in solitary confinement, awaiting a trial that never occurred. — Annabella Sciorra (@AnnabellSciorra) May 27, 2018 “Compare that to the case of Kalief Browder, who was denied bail after being accused of a misdemeanor, then spent four years in Rikers, over half of it in solitary confinement, awaiting a trial that never occurred,” she went on, referencing the tragic case of Browder, who ultimately committed suicide at the age of 22 because of mental distress due to his incarceration.  “If there was truly ‘equal justice under the law,’ Harvey Weinstein would be behind bars in Rikers today, waiting for his own day in court, not free to roam New York, his other hunting ground, wearing an ankle bracelet,” Sciorra wrote.  If there was truly ’equal justice under the law’, Harvey Weinstein would be behind bars in Rikers today, waiting for his own day in court, not free to roam New York, his other hunting ground, wearing an ankle bracelet. — Annabella Sciorra (@AnnabellSciorra) May 27, 2018 Mira Sorvino, who has been a vocal Time’s Up supporter and came forward with her own Weinstein story in 2017, chimed in and thanked Sciorra for her words.  This thread is so important. I feel the same way, there was no jubilation although I was heartened that he was starting the process of standing trial. — Mira Sorvino (@MiraSorvino) May 27, 2018 WATCH: 82 women walked this year’s Cannes red carpet in protest, calling for gender equality in the film industry
