Uma Thurman calls out Harvey Weinstein in ‘Me Too’ post
The Kill Bill star is breaking her silence.
Uma Thurman took to Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017 to wish her followers a Happy Thanksgiving — and to call out disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein for the first time. While she didn’t clarify whether the Hollywood bigwig had ever acted inappropriately toward her personally, the Pulp Fiction actress did use the popular hashtag #MeToo, which has been used by people to open up about their experiences with sexual harassment and assault.
“I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others,” the 47-year-old captioned a black-and-white photo of herself. “I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face.”
“I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so…Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators — I’m glad it’s going slowly — you don’t deserve a bullet),” she concluded, before signing off with “stay tuned.”

“For hours I’m trying to find the right words to thank every single one of your for your warm and supportive reactions,” Thurman tweeted after receiving an outpouring of love and support from fans and peers in the industry. “You left me speechless. That tells its own story. Sometimes words aren’t needed. THANKS is all I can say. x.”

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment and assault in a shocking exposé published by The New York Times in early October 2017. The piece documented the former Miramax co-founder’s alleged 30-year history of sexual misconduct. Thurman’s frequent collaborator, director Quentin Tarantino, later admitted that he knew about Weinstein’s behavior. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” he told The New York Times. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand….What I did was marginalize the incidents. Anything I say now will sound like a crappy excuse.”
