Bob, the brother of Harvey Weinstein, has called out the Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Science to expel his brother from said Academy.
“I find myself in a waking nightmare,” he said. “My brother has caused unconscionable suffering.”
He further described Harvey’s behavior as psychically violent and thuggish.
“I was gonna actually write [to the Academy],” he told The Hollywood Reporter.“And I will do it. I am gonna write a note to them saying he definitely should be kicked out of the Academy.
“I have a brother that’s indefensible and crazy.
As reported by Harriet Alexander for Yahoo! News:
Bob, 62, said his older brother once physically assaulted him in a meeting, and he now wishes he went to the police.
He said he had spoken to Harvey “on a personal level” only around ten times in the past five years. Bob is based in Los Angeles and Harvey in New York, and the two run different divisions of the company.
The film producer said he had spoken to Harvey twice since the bombshell exploded – first with a story in The New York Times, and with then a separate story in The New Yorker.
“I don’t hear concern or contrition for the victims. And I want them to hear that.
“Harvey has no remorse whatsoever. I have spoken to him two times [since news broke], hoping to hear “Oh my God, what have I done?” I didn’t hear that.
“I heard a guy who still was fighting to get back and I was disgusted by it. Do you know how disgusted I am? I divorced my brother five years ago. Literally. And those that know me personally in this company understood how I could not take being around him on any level. And certainly my daughters and my family knew it. I could not take his cheating, his lying and also his attitude toward everyone.”
