Amid the ongoing sexual harassment and assault allegations coming out of Hollywood, many peers and colleagues of the accused have denounced the abusive behavior and spoken out in support of the victims. Last month, Uma Thurman, who has worked with Harvey Weinstein on various projects, gave an incredibly emotional interview reacting to the stories that had come out. Now, she’s taking closer aim at Weinstein in a scathing Instagram message.
Thurman started her caption with a “Happy Thanksgiving” for her followers, before turning it into a message of gratitude for all the women and men who have come forward. “I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others,” she wrote.
She went on to address the current culture in Hollywood, writing, “I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators — I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) — stay tuned.”
Fittingly, the image she posted was of her vengefull Kill Bill character, the Bride.
When Thurman initially spoke with Access Hollywood, she said she wasn’t ready to really share her feelings on the allegations because she needed to wait until her anger had subsided.
“I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I’ve learned — I am not a child — and I’ve learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,” she said, visibly shaken. “So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
The Golden Globe-winning actress has worked with Weinstein and his Miramax production company on seven films, including Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction. She has not made any specific allegations against the disgraced producer to date.
