Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein’s Behavior ‘Truly Disgusting’

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez has spoken out about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations.

Rodriguez has a long history with Weinstein’s company Miramax and was previously in a relationship with Rose McGowan, who said she was assaulted by Weinstein in 1997.

“I find the behavior of Harvey Weinstein truly disgusting, both what he did and how he covered his tracks, and it makes me wonder how many others can’t come forward and tell their full story because of legal and personal intimidation,” Rodriguez said in a statement obtained by Variety. “His repulsive behavior was an abuse of power. Thankfully, he’s now discovering what true power is.”

Rodriguez worked with the Weinstein’s and Miramax on a number of his films, including “The Spy Kids” series, “Roadracers,” “Four Rooms,” “From Dusk Til Dawn,” and “Sin City.”

The New York Times reported that McGowan reached a $1000,000 settlement with Weinstein after an encounter in a hotel room during the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.

On Tuesday, she launched a petition to dissolve the board of the Weinstein Company following reports that the indie film studio plans to change the name of the company in wake of the scandal. “TWC You don’t get to change your company name & be done with it,” she wrote on Twitter. “Every man there has the blood of sorrow on their hands. You are dirty.”
