Kelly Bachman: “I’m a comic. And it’s our job to name the elephant in the room. Do we know what that is? Yeah, it’s a Freddy Krueger in the room, if you will. I didn’t know we had to bring our own Mace and rape whistles to actor’s hours.”
Men in audience: “Boo! Shut up!”
Kelly Bachman: “Oh, shut up? Yeah.”
Man in audience: “Boo!”
Kelly Bachman: “This kills at group therapy for rape survivors.”
Another attendee, actor Zoe Stuckless, was kicked out of the event after confronting Weinstein.
Zoe Stuckless: “Nobody’s going to say anything? Nobody’s really going to say anything? I’ll get out of here, that’s fine. I am happy to leave. But nobody’s going to say anything? I’m gonna stand four feet from a f——— rapist and nobody’s gonna say anything? I’ll go.”
Amber Rollo, who is also a comedian, confronted Weinstein and was kicked out as well, after a member of Weinstein’s entourage called her the c-word. Rollo is also a rape survivor. Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges of rape, sexual assault and “predatory sexual assault.” He faces trial in a Manhattan court in January.
