Courtney Love Warned Us All About Harvey Weinstein 12 Years Ago

As more details of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations come to light, people are asking themselves and one another how this could have gone on so long without anyone saying anything. What they may not know, or may have forgotten, is that people did speak up. One of those people was singer and actress Courtney Love. 

She spoke up way back in 2005, on television, for the world to hear.

It happened as she was walking the red carpet at Comedy Central's roast of Pamela Anderson. Interviewer Natasha Leggero asked Courtney if she had any advice for young girls moving to Hollywood. Courtney, who had been smiling up to that point, turns to face away from Natasha and responds: 

"Um... I'll get libeled if I say it."

After a moment she turns to the camera and blurts out 

"If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party at the Four Seasons, don't go." 

Twitter

At the time many people brushed her comment off as being humor. She was speaking to Comedy Central and at a roast, after all, where being edgy and controversial are par for the course. To some people, her reputation, her struggles with addiction and her obvious intoxication during the roast made her less-than-credible.

Even the interviewer herself completely forgot about the warning.

People on Twitter shared their thoughts on why nobody took her seriously.

Users mourned the damage done to so many after Courtney's words fell on deaf ears.

Well, not entirely deaf. According to Courtney, she was banned from the CAA and essentially forbidden from working in Hollywood as a result of her comment.

Other celebrities are showing Courtney some love.
