- Italian writer/director/actress Asia Argento was on hand to present the award for Best Actress at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony
- Argento has gone on record before about how she was raped by Weinstein at Cannes
- In her speech she mentioned that there are still rapists and harassers involved with the festival and vowed to be among those holding these predators responsible and expelling them from the film community
I want to make a prediction. Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here ever again. He will live in disgrace, shunned by a film community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes.
And even tonight, sitting among you, there are those who still have to be held accountable for their conduct against women. For behavior that does not belong in this industry, does not belong in any industry or any workplace. You know who you are. You do not belong in this industry. But most importantly, we know who you are, and we’re not going to allow you to get away with it any longer.
I ♥ Asia.
