Skin And A Sharpie Is All Emily Ratajkowski Needs To Talk Harvey Weinstein

Yesterday, Weinstein reached a tentative settlement deal with accusers.

People have used all sorts of mediums to make their thoughts on disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein known – tweets, books, articles, open letters. But for Emily Ratajkowski, all it takes is a sharpie, a red carpet and an arm.

The actress and model attended the premiere of Adam Sandler’s new movie Uncut Gems this week where she sported a black dress and a tattoo written in sharpie on her left arm that read: “F*ck Harvey.”

Ratajkowski’s red carpet message came just hours after The New York Times reported that Harvey Weinstein had reached a tentative $36.5 million settlement deal with 30 of the women who accused him of sexual misconduct and assault.

The $36.5 million is part of an overall $68.5 million settlement deal intended to close out the producer’s studio obligations and will be paid out by the insurance companies rather than Weinstein himself.

The deal would also mean that Weinstein won’t have to admit any wrongdoing and according to Forbes, 18 of the accusers will split $6.2M USD, with no one receiving more than $500K USD.

The settlement deal has been slammed by the public and members of the #MeToo movement for essentially letting Weinstein off the hook.

In an Instagram post showing off her message to Weinstein, Ratajkowski wrote, “Today Harvey Weinstein and his former studio made a $25 million deal with his victims.”

“Weinstein, accused of offenses ranging from sexual harassment to rape, won’t have to admit wrongdoing or pay his own money.”

It’s no surprise Emily Ratajkowski used the opportunity to speak out against Weinstein – she’s a proud feminist and shortly after the accusations against the film producer hit the headlines, she told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, “Nobody was surprised by these allegations.”

“I think people need to wake up and realize there’s something deeply disturbing [about the industry]. I think that there are a lot of power dynamics that have been deeply sown from the very beginning of the industry, where there are very small things that even as a woman you are so used to, that you don’t realize how wrong they are. But I hope the culture is changing.”

Harvey Weinstein is scheduled to be tried in Manhattan in January 2020 on criminal charges of sexual assault involving two women and all eyes will be on how this will unfold.

It's Official, Greta Thunberg Is The Queen Of Clapbacks With This Sassy Twitter Bio

Earlier this week, Brazil's president called her a "brat."

When Greta Thunberg has finished her epic climate activism tour around the world she needs to host a workshop in the art of clapping back because her latest comeback is one for the history books.

Earlier this week, Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro called Thunberg a “brat” after she tweeted a link to a story about the murder of indigenous people in the country’s Maranhao state.

“Greta said that the Indians died because they were defending the Amazon,” Bolsonaro told journalists. “It’s impressive that the press is giving space to a brat like that.” 

Instead of doing what I definitely would’ve done at 16 years old and ball my bloody eyes out, Thunberg took to Twitter to respond.

The teen activist changed her Twitter bio to read “Pirralha” – the Portugese word for “brat” – with no other explanation except for an invisible mic DROP.

It’s a good thing Thunberg is taking Bolsonaro’s comments with a grain of salt. The Brazilian president has made some rather controversial comments during his time as a the ‘Trump of the Tropics.’

A few weeks ago, Bolsonaro accused Leonardo DiCaprio of helping to cause the Amazon rainforest fires, and in August this year he suggested that people should “poop every other day” as a way to save the planet.

It’s not the first time Thunberg has been forced to clap back at angry old men. In September, Donald Trump responded to her moving speech at the United Nations Climate Summit by tweeting, “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”

In classic Greta Thunberg fashion, she took Trump’s quote and made her Twitter bio: “A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”
