1. Padma Lakshmi

“Harvey Weinstein is now a convicted rapist. If there’s a man who doesn’t deserve bail, it’s him.”

2. Ellen Barkin

“Right now Harvey Weinstein is on his way to prison. These are the women who put him away… Mimi Haleyi Jessica Mann Annabella Sciorra Dawn Dunning Lauren Young Tarale Wulff.”

3. Judd Apatow

“Don’t forget- Harvey Weinstein faces four more charges in Los Angeles. This is just the beginning of holding him accountable.”

4. John Fuglesong

“After decades of Harvey Weinstein abusing women it’s good to see society is finally nipping this in the bud.”

5. Alyssa Milano

“The jury convicted Weinstein of 1 count of rape & 1 count of committing a criminal sexual act. He was acquitted on the charges of predatory sexual assault, which each carried a potential life sentence.”

6. Rosanna Arquette

“Gratitude to the brave women who’ve testified and to the jury for seeing through the dirty tactics of the defense .we will change the laws in the future so that rape victims are heard and not discredited and so that it’s easier for people to report their rapes”

7. Amber Tamblyn
