There’s now audiotape of Harvey Weinstein admitting to full-on sexual assault

‘Stop, you’re making me uncomfortable’

Last week, The New York Times released a scathing exposé about Harvey Weinstein, the major piece of shit producer behind such film hits as Pulp Fiction and Shakespeare in Love.

Today, Ronan Farrow’s 10-month investigative piece on the sexual assaults and harassment allegations about Harvey Weinstein dropped in The New Yorker. In the piece, Farrow releases an audio recording that was taken during a 2015 NYPD sting operation.

This is the first time the audio has been made public and you can actively hear Harvey admitting to sexually assaulting a Filipina-Italian model named Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.

Within the audio, you can hear Ambra pleading with Weinstein to let her leave. She explicitly says “No, I don’t want to” and “You are making me uncomfortable” several times in the clip.

Weinstein gets angry and demands that she sit with him while he showers.Weinstein gives the model veiled threats about what he would do if she embarrassed him at the hotel.

Most importantly and disturbingly, Harvey admits to groping Ambra’s breasts without her consent, brushing it off as nothing more than something he’s “used to.”

Weinstein was removed from his position at his eponymous Weinstein Company after the allegations came to light. There is also word that The Weinstein Company will be changing its name.

It’s important to point out amidst all of this that Harvey wasn’t fired because of the allegations — which have been known secrets in Hollywood for decades — but he was fired because the allegations were made public.

It’s disgusting. It’s harrowing. It’s despicable. Listen below:
