Seth McFarlane Comments On Harvey Weinstein Allegations

Seth Mac Farlane cracked a joke about Harvey Weinstein in 2013

Seth Mac Farlane joked about Harvey Weinstein and actresses at 2013 Oscar nominations

Weinstein stands accused of sexual harassment by several women in Hollywood, leading to his dismissal from his own company and separation from his wife.

MacFarlane, who took a jab at Weinstein in his hosting of the Academy Awards in 2013, worked with one of the Weinstein victims, Jessica Barth, on his Ted films. He congratulated them, and then quipped, "You five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein".

You can hear a room full of reporters laughing.

Regardless, the joke doesn't seem so amusing now.

It wasn't the first (or last) time that a joke about Weinstein's misconduct had been made prior to the recent revelations.

"Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger", MacFarlane continued.

In his Wednesday tweet, MacFarlane claimed that Barth confided in him about Weinstein's alleged harassment in 2011, which informed his controversial Oscars dig at Weinstein; "It was with this account in mind that, when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn't resist the opportunity to take a hard swing in his direction", he said.




"There is nothing more abhorrent and indefensible than abuse of power such as this", he said.

Harvey Weinstein attends Brooks Brothers with The Cinema Society host the premiere of "House of Z" at Crosby Street Hotel, Sept.7, 2017, in New York City.

While those outside of Hollywood was unaware, we found out of at least one person who knew about Weinstein and that was Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Barth is on the growing list of women who allege that Weinstein either harassed or assaulted them, with three women also alleging they were raped by him. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

In his statement, the filmmaker and comedian made it clear that he was calling out Weinstein.

Weinstein responded to the report in a lengthy, rambling statement in which he pleaded for a second chance and apologized for the pain he had caused.
