Asia Argento, the Italian actress who was one of the first to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, was herself accused of sexual misconduct with a minor. Argento, a contributing founder of the #metoo movement, allegedly assaulted the teenage boy actor Jimmy Bennett in 2013 according to the New York Times.
In keeping with the mainstream progressive media narrative standards, Buzzfeed released an article by its senior culture writer, Bim Adewunmi, whereby she identified a “white elephant in Harvey Weinstein’s hotel room”.
The white elephant? Racism. According to this writer, not only did Weinstein engage in the horrific acts of sexual harassment, he discriminated by not harassing women of color—specifically black women.
