There have been some new developments in the scandal revolving around Harvey Weinstein. Sources say he sent a desperate email before he was fired.
“My board is thinking of firing me. All I’m asking, is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling. Whether it be in a facility or somewhere else, allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance. A lot of the allegations are false as you know but given therapy and counseling as other people have done, I think I’d be able to get there,” the letter began, according to Min.

Many of the “big wigs” did not receive this letter in good terms. They were disgusted with the plea and in no way were willing to buckle. Weinstein added, “With all due respect, I need the letter today.” The media strategist for the holding company took to twitter to share the info.
Tweets read: “Confirmed: among the power players who refused to support Weinstein were Ron Meyer, David Zaslav, Jeffrey Katzenberg”. Another tweet read: “One big player who refused to respond positively to Weinstein’s email plea tells me he replied in essence: “no f-ing chance.”
