(AllHipHop News) Successful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has become the face of sexual improprieties in Hollywood. However, the #MeToo movement has brought light to these issues in other industries as well.
"There will probably be more," said Legend. "My manager, she's told me stories about sexual harassment, dealing with record execs taking liberties, even when they are pretty powerful. Men who have power need to do a lot better than this."
The Grammy, Tony, and Oscar winner also discussed Weinstein's longstanding reputation among people in the entertainment business. Legend stated, "We all heard jokes, like, ‘You’ve got to sleep with Harvey to get a part.’ I never knew if it was based on truth or rumor. I’m glad we know now."
While #MeToo exposed many cases of inappropriate and/or criminal behavior, some of the men being accused have denied the claims are true. The movement has also been criticized for promoting overcorrection and for not spotlighting women of color that have been victims of sexual misconduct.
