Samantha Bee has blasted Harvey Weinstein and the threatened the ‘creepy men of Hollywood’ on her show Full Frontal Wednesday.

Her criticism comes after a number of her high-profile female celebrities peers – such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie – have come forward following allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey.

The outspoken comedian and media critic did not hold back on her show.

‘Fellas, I’m a big comedy star/Hollywood executive and I found that it’s quite easy not to masturbate in front of my employees,’ she said warming up to her rant.

‘In fact, it’s one of the easiest things I do. Every day I wake up, get dressed, take the subway to work, and then don’t masturbate in front of anyone. Next time you get the urge to masturbate, just ask yourself, “Am I in front of an employee or a colleague?” And if the answer is yes, don’t – just don’t.’

The comedian also made sure she took complete aim at all ‘the creeps of Hollywood.’

She stated: ‘Listen up creeps of Hollywood. We know who you are. Weinstein isn’t the only cool Democrat lurking in film festival hotels, waiting to play a jolly masturbating prank.’

‘Women talk to each other. We talk to journalists and we talk to lawyers. It is 2017. We don’t have to put up with this shit. We are coming for you,’ she concluded.

Talking to her audience she said: ‘Talk to every woman that you work with like she has the New York Times on speed dial.’

Further her threats she said: ‘Talk to every woman like she has me on speed dial. My show is only once a week. I’ve got a lot of free time.’

Her rant comes after a host of celebrities have spoken out about their own experiences of harassment, from Weinstein to other Hollywood execs.

And it’s not just the female stars – Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and James Van Der Beek have also opened up about harassment at the hands of men in Hollywood.

Rose McGowan is the highest-profile of Weinstein’s accusers, with it emerging she reportedly sued the movie producer for making advances on her during the production of the Weinstein-produced 1996 teen slasher film Scream.

McGowan claims she was abused by Weinstein inside a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. Rose has previously claimed she was raped by a studio head and on Sunday, she tweeted about being abused by a ‘monster’.

It is claimed she signed a non-disclosure agreement after filing the lawsuit after allegedly being paid off by Weinstein.

Rose has since tweeted her thanks to The New York Times for ‘saving lives’ by reporting the accusations against Harvey.

Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd claims that during the filming of Weinstein’s movie Kiss the Girls, he repeatedly asked her to watch him as he showered and offered to give her a massage in his hotel room.

She says she remembers thinking at the time: ‘How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?’

Judd spoke out about Harvey this week as The New York Times posted the allegations. She said in a statement: ‘Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it’s simply beyond time to have the conversation publicly.’

Laura Madden

Laura Madden is an ex-employee of Weinstein’s and alleges he asked her to give him massages from 1991 and onwards. She told the NYT: ‘It was so manipulative. You constantly question yourself – am I the one who is the problem?’

Italian actress and model Ambra Battilana also claimed to the NYT that Weinstein had asked her if her breasts were real in a meeting in New York in 2015, before he allegedly grabbed her chest while putting his hands up her skirt. She is another victim Weinstein apparently paid off after police failed to press charges.

An audio recording made by Ambra later emerged, featuring Weinstein pleading with her to enter a bathroom and watch him have a shower.

Lauren O’Connor

Another former employee of TWC, Lauren O’Connor spoke out in 2015, telling executives that women were faced with a ‘toxic environment’. It followed her being told by a female assistant that Weinstein had coerced her into giving him a massage while he was naked. She was apparently left ‘crying and very distraught’. O’connor had written in her report: ‘There is a toxic environment for women at this company.’

Lauren Sivan claims Weinstein masturbated in a restaurant after trapping her there with him, climaxing in front of her during the incident in 2007 when she refused to kiss him, reports the Huffington Post.

Another hotel incident was reported by Liza Campbell, a freelance script reader, who claims Harvey invited her to get in the bath with him, according to The Sunday Times.

Romola Garai stepped forward to document her own experience with Weinstein on Monday October 9, after many other allegations had already been made.

The 35-year-old actress recalled how, at the age of 18, she had also had to ‘audition’ with Harvey Weinstein as he sat in his dressing gown in a hotel room in London.

‘Like every other woman in the industry, I’ve had an “audition” with Harvey Weinstein, where I’d actually already had the audition but you had to be personally approved by him,’ said Garai. ‘So I had to go to his hotel room in the Savoy, and he answered the door in his bathrobe. I was only 18. I felt violated by it, it has stayed very clearly in my memory.’

Asia Argento

Asia Argento, an Italian film actress and director, claimed that Weinstein ‘forcibly performed oral sex on her’ but alleged that she refused to speak out because ‘he has crushed a lot of people’.

‘That’s why this story—in my case, it’s twenty years old, some of them are older—has never come out,’ she added.

‘The thing with being a victim is I felt responsible. Because if I were a strong woman, I would have kicked him in the balls and run away. But I didn’t. And so I felt responsible.’

Gwnyeth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow claimed she suffered sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein in the 1990s.

She detailed how, after being cast in Weinstein’s Jane Austen adaptation of Emma, he touched her and invited her into his hotel room for a massage.

The mum-of-two, who also starred in Weinstein’s Oscar-winning movie Shakespeare In Love, which was a Miramax Films production, claimed she had been asked to attend a meeting in his hotel room when he made the advance. ‘I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,’ Paltrow told the New York Times.

Gwyneth, aged 22 at the time, bravely rejected his offer and then told her then-boyfriend Pitt, then aged 32, what had happened. At a party in 1995 Pitt then approached Weinstein and, without worrying about his own career in Hollywood, told him in no uncertain terms to never touch Paltrow again.

Representatives for Pitt confirmed the story.

Angelina Jolie

In an email to the New York Times, which broke the story of decades of harassment by Weinstein on Hollywood women, Angelina also documented her own experience.

She said: ‘I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth. And as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.’

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne joined the list of actresses speaking out against Harvey Weinstein in a late-night Instagram post on Wednesday October 11, six days after the initial allegations emerged.

Also claiming sexual harassment, the former model turned actress recalled how, when she first began working in Hollywood, she received an ‘off and uncomfortable’ call from Weinstein asking her about who she had slept with of her group of friends, before telling her that if she were indeed gay she would never ‘make it as an actress in Hollywood’

She then revealed how a year or two later she she had to meet with regarding a film she was working on and how he ‘began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature’.

Cara claims he invited her to his room and his assistant told her that she should go to the bedroom. In the bedroom there was another women and he then asked the two of them to kiss.
