WATCH: Seth Meyers takes a closer look at Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump and systemic sexism

NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers takes a closer look at how powerful men in entertainment and politics – from Harvey Weinstein to Donald Trump – abuse their power to silence, bully or coerce. Seth is brilliant and on point, as always.

One Remark

  1. It is systemic and (of course) it is not limited to women being the victims. Of course I’m not going to mention the names of the rumors or “open secrets” (some of them even aren’t rumors but made it the main news too) of how some big names abused guys, even (allegedly) minors, with the same tools of power. Some rumors hurt us because some of the big names mentioned are otherwise people who apparently did much for the LGBT’s cause (but we all know how strong is the temptation of the flesh mixed with the power to make or disrupt or slow careers). Neither will I mention those very talented guys (some gay guys too) that we always wonder why they, apparently having so much to offer (recognized even with awards and/or nominations) didn’t get to work more often or in the right big productions (in contrast with some others…), what leaves you to speculate and think that, well, maybe they didn’t bed the right big name. Also (and I do not blame them for it, of any gender and sexual orientation) those many (so many because I presume) who had to accept the dirty deal and do it in order to climb the ladder or at least try it, even when they do have talent. I will stop it there before mentioning the suspicious marriages (and later divorces) of some unlikely couples least it sounds to paranoiac. Hope this becomes at the very least LESS normal or assumed or “part of the business” in particular with the entertaining industry or in general.
