Weinstein has produced most of Tarantino’s films Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.
Many in the media have questioned the silence of Hollywood men in the wake of Weinstein scandal which grows bigger everyday with many female actors such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne, Heather Graham and many others opening up about Weinstein.
Around three dozen women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment at the hands of the producer after a New York Times expose and the New Yorker article that broadened the claims to include rape.
