Producer of Harvey Weinstein/Actors Hour debacle speaks ... again 1

The producer of the occasion that ejected an actor protesting Harvey Weinstein’s presence there has issued a second assertion on the debacle.

On Wednesday, Actors Hour booted Zoe Stuckless (who makes use of the pronoun “they”) after they loudly confronted the disgraced mogul — who was a visitor on the artsy occasion — calling him “a rapist.”

The present is run by Alexandra Laliberte, who has erased her preliminary assertion — wherein she claimed Weinstein wasn’t invited — and posted a brand new one on Instagram, admitting Weinstein had been at a earlier present.

Laliberte stated, “I was not prepared to handle such a high-energy situation,” including that she was “deeply saddened that this was not only triggering for some attendees, but that they ultimately felt unsafe — some even outraged.”

Actor Stuckless was filmed confronting the disgraced producer, yelling, “I’m going to stand 4 feet from a f–king rapist? And nobody’s going to say anything?” Stuckless was escorted out.

Laliberte claims in her second assertion she was uncertain if Stuckless was “beginning a performance or monologue,” and that they “should not have been encouraged to leave.”

“I should have shut down the event or given [Stuckless] the microphone to vocalize [their] feelings, but I was in total shock and I let my fear and inexperience paralyze my decision making,” she wrote.

Comic Amber Rollo stated she additionally confronted Weinstein — and was additionally kicked out.

“I went in and called him a f–king monster and told him he should disappear,” she tweeted. “His friend/bodyguard/goon/family member called me a c–t … There was a woman at the table with him who gently guided me out.”

A spokesperson for Weinstein stated a Weinstein worker didn’t use the C-word.

Comic Kelly Bachman addressed Weinstein’s presence throughout her stand-up set and was booed. “I didn’t know that we have to bring our own Mace and rape whistles to Actors Hour,” she stated, with one male attendee yelling, “Shut up.”
