Quentin Tarantino's reaction to the Harvey Weinstein Allegations: ‘I Knew Enough to Do More Than I Did’

Weinstein's close friend and frequent collaborator Quentin Tarantino said he was "stunned and heartbroken" by the news of his friend's disgusting actions, but needed more time before making a full statement.

The "Pulp Fiction" director sat down with New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor, who was one of the people who initially broke the story. In the interview Tarantino stated, 

“I knew enough to do more than I did. 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.” 

What a burden he had to bare. The Academy Award winner also admitted :


Immediately the heat began to flare for Quentin.





What is curiously insidious is the fact that one of Harvey Weinstein's first and most outspoken survivors is Mira Sorvino. Who just happens to be... Quentin's ex-love.

That is awkward, to say the least.


Tarantino also employed actress Rose McGowan, who was allegedly raped by Weinstein. 

Quentin's thoughts?

"I mentally compartmentalized all the stories as one-off incidents.I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”

Reaction is still a mixed bag for QT in the court of public opinion. 




Quentin now implores other men in Hollywood who turned a blind eye to Weinstein to face their own complicity: “I’m calling on the other guys who knew more to not be scared. Don’t just give out statements. Acknowledge that there was something rotten in Denmark. Vow to do better by our sisters.”

This story seems so far from over.
