It’s safe to say that now Harvey Weinstein has pretty much been shunned in Hollywood. At this point almost every celebrity has spoken out against him but it seems that Drake and his team are so woke that he passed up the opportunity to work with him even before Weinstein was served will all of the sexual assault and harassment accusations and pretty much blacklisted in Hollywood.
Drake recently gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter talking about his love for Harry Potter, his movement into TV and film—but the point that has got everyone buzzing is when he touched on being chased up by Harvey Weinstein to start in The Heist.
In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter Future, Drake’s manager and business partner says “I vetted him with five people and got bad feedback about working with him.”
Drake has held his morals high once again but we already knew that when back in 2016 he posted a heartfelt Instagram caption in support of the Black Lives Matter movement: “It’s impossible to ignore that the relationship between black and brown communities and law enforcement remains as strained as it was decades ago. No one begins their life as a hashtag. Yet the trend of being reduced to one continues. This is real and I’m concerned. Concerned for the safety of my family, my friends and any human being that could fall victim to this pattern. I do not know the answer. But I believe things can change for the better. Open and honest dialogue is the first step.”
Declining Weinstein’s offer before it was “in” and deciding not to work with him is just another example of why Drake is awesome.
