“Can we use the word “rapist” now? #Weinstein.”
“I know he has crushed a lot of people before. That’s why this story — in my case, it’s 20 years old, some of them are older — has never come out,” Argento explained in the expose.
In 2000, the Italian actress wrote and directed the film “Scarlet Diva,” that contained a scene where a seemingly powerful producer asks her character for a massage and then tries to assault her in a hotel room. Argento claimed in the expose that women came forward and said they recognized the scene from real life behavior from Weinstein. Bourdain shared a clip of the movie on his Twitter account, as well.

Bourdain didn’t stop there, either. The 61-year-old celebrity chef then showed his support for Rose McGowan, another alleged victim of Weinstein.
“Can everyone who dismissed @rosemcgowan now do the right thing and go f—k themselves?,” he tweeted before adding another tweet where he shared the audio from an NYPD sting operation, which was obtained by The New Yorker, and seems to implicate that Harvey is touching a woman inappropriately.
“This is what a powerful, professional predator sounds like in action,” Bourdain tweeted alongside the video.
