Harvey Weinstein's Lawyer Says The #MeToo Movement Is "So Over The Top"
Buzzfeed reports that Harvey Weinstein's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said the #MeToo movement is "proving to be so over the top" that his colleagues are now afraid to tell "an attractive associate that they're wearing a nice outfit."
In his first interview since charges were filed against Weinstein,Brafman told BBC Radio 4 that he's concerned his client won't get a fair trial because the publicity in his case "has been so prejudicial."
Weinstein was indicted last month on charges of first and third degree rap and a first degree criminal sexual act.
Brafman blamed massive wave of allegations against Weinstein on what he characterized as a herd mentality associated with the #MeToo movement.
