Harvey Weinstein Solicited Top Hollywood Execs Before Firing: “I Am Desperate for Your Help”

“I could really use your support,” the embattled exec pleaded.

As the board of The Weinstein Co. moved to fire Harvey Weinstein as its co-chairman over the weekend, he sent a private email to a number of high-level Hollywood executives at the studios, networks and talent agencies, begging for their aid in helping him save his job.

“I am desperate for your help,” Weinstein said as he asked others in the industry for a letter that he could present to the TWC board “stating your opposition to the board firing me.”
