Longtime Harvey Weinstein collaborator Quentin Tarantino has finally spoken publicly about the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the producer.
Actress Amber Tamblyn wrote on Twitter that she had met with the “Pulp Fiction” director for dinner Thursday night, and that he wanted her to share a statement from him.
Though Tarantino says in the statement that he is “stunned and heartbroken,” he also asks for time “to process my pain, emotions, anger and memory” before addressing the allegations in a more public way.
Weinstein has produced or distributed all of Tarantino’s films since his debut “Reservoir Dogs” in 1992.
Many on Twitter were not impressed with Tarantino’s initial response to the allegations, calling him out for his statement, with some insinuating that the director must have been aware of Weinstein’s actions over the years.
