Harvey Weinstein Was an ‘Abusive Rapist’ Who ‘Stepped on’ Women, Prosecutors Allege at Rape Trial

Harvey Weinstein was “an abusive rapist” who believed he was the “master of his universe,” treating vulnerable young women who sought his professional help like “ants that he could step on without consequences,” prosecutors charged Friday during closing arguments at his watershed rape trial in Manhattan. 

“The universe is run by [Weinstein] so, therefore, they don’t get to complain when they’re stepped on, spit on, demoralized, and then, yes, raped and abused,” Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi declared in Manhattan Supreme Court. “He made sure he can contact the people he was worried about as a little check to make sure one day they wouldn’t walk out of the shadows and call him what he was: an abusive rapist.”

“But he also underestimated them,” she continued, stating this case is about “power, manipulation, and abuse.”
