BROUGHT TO YOU BY ONE HOUR HEATING & A/C!
A newly released video shows Harvey Weinstein hitting on a young woman in his office hours before the woman claims the producer raped her. In the 2011 video obtained by Page Six, Melissa Thompson pitches her tech startup to the mogul but things quickly get creepy. First is an awkward hug. Then Thompson jokes: “Data’s so hot right now.” Weinstein replies, “It is hot. You’re hot. Let me have a little part of you. Give it to me. It’s okay, would you like to do it some more?” He then strokes her arm. After the meeting, Thompson says, Weinstein lured her to his hotel room and assaulted her. Weinstein denies the allegations and his lawyer insists the video had been edited to obscure “casual — if not awkward — flirting from both parties.”
