British Town Plans to Burn Harvey Weinstein in Effigy

A town in Britain will burn a 36-foot effigy of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein at its annual Bonfire Night celebrations, the AP reports.

“Each year the Edenbridge Bonfire Society chooses a well-known figure to go up in flames alongside an effigy of 17th-century militant Guy Fawkes,” the story reports. “The society says the movie mogul was the obvious choice after many women made allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him.”

“The effigy unveiled Wednesday appears in a bathrobe, holding a Hollywood star and a clapperboard with ‘final cut’ on it,” the story reports. “It will be burned Saturday in the southern England town.”

  1. They carefully avoided a 6-pointed star but gimme a break, this is a witch-hunt, anti-Semitic to boot. What is the white shawl around his shoulders? The UK pretends its politically correct but it’s just as anti-Semitic now as it was in medieval days. Instead of burning the effigy of a dead Catholic traitor they do this to a man still alive. Nasty, and you, TV Week, and every other media, social or otherwise, writing click-bait stories one after the other, are party to this spiteful nonsense
