Note that this is not about the fact that each of the victims of the producer will receive $ 19 million, the statement says about the total compensation. The money will be shared between women who have been sexually discriminated against and harassed while working for The Weinstein Company.
Recall, the scandal surrounding the Hollywood producer flared up in 2017. He was accused of harassing more than 100 women, including such famous actresses as Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Ashley Judd. Amid the scandal, Weinstein was fired from his own company.
