Actress Paz de la Huerta accuses Weinstein of r@pe

Published

Actress Paz de la Huerta has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her twice in 2010, joining dozens of women who have levelled sexual assault allegations against the disgraced Hollywood mogul.

The 33-year-old, known for her role in hit TV series “Boardwalk Empire”, described the alleged assaults, which police are investigating, to Vanity Fair magazine.

The first occurred when Weinstein demanded to come inside De la Huerta’s apartment after driving her home, she said.

“He pushed me onto the bed and his pants were down and he lifted up my skirt. I felt afraid… It wasn’t consensual,” she told the magazine.

De la Huerta said the second assault occurred about a month later when Weinstein showed up at her building despite her having asked him to leave her alone, and suggested talking about it in her apartment.

She had been drinking and “was in no state. I was so terrified of him… I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, ‘I don’t want to do this,’” the actress said.

“He’s like a pig… he raped me,” she said.

New York Police Department spokesman Sergeant Brendan Ryan told AFP that the department is “aware of the sexual assault complaints” and is “actively investigating them.”

“The NYPD continues to work with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office on the case. The investigation is ongoing,” Ryan said.

Accounts of abuse by Weinstein that were published last month in The New York Times and The New Yorker encouraged others to speak out, unleashing a cascade of allegations of sexual harassment and assault against leading figures in Hollywood and elsewhere.

Weinstein has denied the allegations.

Popular TV personality, Latasha Ngwube, has some words for those looking on to celebrities for hope. The 37-year-old lifestyle journalist says they are not activists and should not be put in such a position.

Taking to her Instagram page, she shares that a celebrity does not necessarily have to deliver the people to the promised land. In her words:

“CELEBRITY does not = ACTIVISTS nor does INFLUENCER = POLITICIANS  It does not mean one cannot be or become the other but PLEASE don’t automatically assign your collective future to a famous face because you like them. Think critically. A celebrity can be an agent for change but not necessarily the ONE who will deliver you from the promised land.”
