Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault has been an open secret for years — even becoming a punchline at the 2013 Oscars. Still, the following celebs and politicians continued to associate themselves with the Hollywood mega-producer. Here are some of his closest allies who supported Weinstein throughout the years.
Barack and Michelle Obama
According to Fox News, Michelle Obama considers Weinstein “a wonderful human being and a good friend.” Not surprising, considering he donated personally to Obama’s presidential run.
Clinton has come under INTENSE scrutiny for her closeness to Weinstein — and for good reason. He once hosted her birthday party and personally donated $5,400 to her presidential campaign and $33,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, according to The Hill.

This fashion designer bizarrely chose to support Weinstein AFTER the allegations were made public. She claimed that the woman Weinstein assaulted were “asking for it,” according to People.
Donna Karen isn’t the only celeb to support Weinstein after-the-fact. Lindsey Lohan posted a video on Instagram stating, “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
