Harvey Weinstein Scandal – level 2

16-10-2017 07:00

Harvey Weinstein is a famous film producer and co-founder of the Weinstein Company, which has produced many films. Some of them are Django Unchained, The King’s Speech, and The Imitation Game.

The company recently fired Weinstein after a series of allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against him. There are a number of women who are speaking against him and the number is still rising. Most of them are actresses, but also models, directors and designers.

The media is talking a lot about the scandal, and many people are sharing their experiences or opinions. Donald Trump said that he was ‘not at all surprised’ to see that Harvey Weinstein was caught up in a sex scandal.

Difficult words: co-founder (someone who founded – started a company with someone else), allegation (saying that somebody did something), sexual assault (having sex with somebody when he or she does not want to).
