Asia Argento opened up at Cannes Festival 2018. She gave devastating speech about Harvey Weinstein. Asia Argento came to the stage for presenting the best actress prize and gave incredible speech against Harvey Weinstein.
She told that Cannes Festival used to be the hunting ground for Harvey Weinstein. She also claimed that she was raped by Harvey at Cannes Festival in 1997. Last year Asia came up with the rape allegations against Harvey. This time she publically announced this in an award ceremony.
“I was raped by Harvey Weinstein in Cannes in 1997. I was 21-years-old. This festival was his hunting ground. I’m going to make a prediction: Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here again. He will never disgrace the community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes,” she said at Cannes Festival.
She said: “Even tonight there are those that still need to be held accountable for his behavior. You do not belong in this industry. You know who you are. We are not going to allow you to get away with it any longer.” Harvey Weinstein’s spokes person has denied the rape allegation.
