    I will be surprised if he survives his prison sentence, even if he does get assigned to a white collar prison.Report

    He wouldn’t have gone to jail if he was still making money, getting oscars, an such for actors….but he had a few bad years and became “expendable”.Report

    Apparently, he has been depressed and even suicidal lately. We’re probably looking at a “Weinstein Dead” thread one of these days.Report

      His legal team promised he’d die in prison if sentenced for more than five years, so hopefully he’ll make good on it.

      *holds finger to earpiece*

      Sorry, it appears his legal team _threatened_ that he would die in prison if sentenced for more than five years, not ‘promised’. That’s a…weird ‘threat’ to make.Report

    News story says Weinstein has the corona. Reading this, I immediately checked to see if it was from his spokesperson or from officials and it’s from officials.

      Well, I’m not sure what to think about that. Given his pre-existing health conditions, he’s at high risk. Some will say it’s karma, and some will say it’s ironic that he survived every STD Hollywood could produce, only to get laid low by a Chinese pandemic.

      Yet from another perspective, all his sins are forgiven because the Pope granted such forgiveness to everyone affected by the virus. We were all convinced that Weinstein would rot in the bowels of hell, and yet he’s might waltz right into Heaven on what I would describe as a clerical error. It’s like getting an acquittal from the only judge who really matters.Report
