What’s the new hashtag going to be? ‘Havey Weinstein didn’t infect himself?’
Harvey Weinstein has come crashing down to Earth from the heights of power and prestige. But even lawyers couldn’t have predicted things would get worse for him AFTER he was sentenced to prison.
One way or another, Harvey Weinstein has contracted Chinese Coronavirus.
Weinstein, 68, has been placed in isolation at Wende Correctional Facility, said Michael Powers, president of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association.
Powers said he learned that the test came back positive on Sunday morning and is concerned about the corrections officers, who he said lack proper protective equipment. Several staff have been quarantined, Powers said.
Weinstein arrived at Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison east of Buffalo, New York, on Wednesday after being housed at New York City’s Rikers Island jail. — Reuters
The internet had some opinions about his diagnosis.
What you WON’T find is anything approaching ‘thoughts and prayers’. (Unless you count the one person who wants him to live, recover, and see through the rest of his 23 miserable years in prison.)

I bet Harvey Weinstein got the Wuhan Virus from the same store he bought his walker.

I’m less interested in the fact that Harvey Weinstein tested positive for #COVID19, as much as the fact that he got a test before actually decent humans.

Turns out there are some things that wealth and power just can’t buy.
Respect is one. And health is another.
Today, he has neither.
