Harvey Weinstein has responded to Lupita Nyong’o‘s sexual harassment allegations.
According to Lupita’s op-ed in The New York Times, he invited her to his home on the pretence of watching a movie screening with his family. Shortly after it started, she said he insisted in front of his children that she follow him and was led to his bedroom.
In a statement made by his representative Weinstein denied the claims, making her one of very few actresses Weinstein has responded to.
“Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry, Last year, she sent a personal invitation to Mr. Weinstein to see her in her Broadway show Eclipsed.”
