Harvey Weinstein had ‘chest pains’ after being sentenced to 23 years in prison

Harvey Weinstein posts new bond to ensure he won't flee sexual assault trial

Yesterday, Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison. He was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault previously, and in between the guilty verdict and the sentencing, Weinstein had been hospitalized and he even underwent surgery for a stent in his heart. I said yesterday, before the sentencing, that I expected Weinstein to fake another medical issue during his sentencing. I expected him to collapse on the courtroom floor. Turns out, he waited a few hours post-sentencing and then complained of “chest pains.”

Just hours after he was sentenced to 23 years in prison, disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was transferred to Bellevue Hospital in New York due to chest pains. Weinstein, 67, was transferred to the Manhattan hospital Wednesday evening, following chest pains he experienced while at Rikers Island jail, according to his spokesman Juda Engelmayer.

The determination to move Weinstein was made by staff at Rikers Island for his safety. He will be evaluated and likely will stay overnight, Engelmayer said.

Weinstein, whose case helped ignite the global #MeToo movement, had faced between five and 29 years in prison after being convicted of first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. The jury, made up of seven men and five women, deliberated for five days. The charges were based on Miriam Haley’s testimony that Weinstein forced oral sex on her in 2006 and Jessica Mann’s testimony that he raped her in 2013. Four other women also testified.

I mean… I guess, whatever, I don’t care. I think an old serial rapist would probably feel a lot of stress and yeah, maybe the chest pains are probably legit. But I don’t care, because I don’t care about the welfare of rapists.

What else? I’m not going to quote anything from Weinstein’s lawyers because they disgust me. I believe that every single person has the right to counsel, but his lawyers are disgusting people and they’re saying disgusting things. I also read this piece at Page Six about how Weinstein asked his ex-wives to testify on his behalf at his sentencing and both refused. Yep.

    So he continued to have chest pains? Good. I hope they continue, because the PTSD for all of his victims continue as well. Sorry not sorry.

  2. severine says:

    I think he’s hoping to die so he doesn’t have to serve his sentence. He is a large pile of useless rotten flesh and soul, so good riddance either way.

    • Holly hobby says:

      I don’t want him dead. I want him alive for most of his sentence so he can suffer

  3. Scarlett says:

    Please let it not be fatal. I want him to wallow, fester and rot in prison for every single minute of the next 23 years.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Exactly what I came here to say! Dear Bellevue: Please take good care of Harvey so he can serve as much time as possible. I’d be okay with him dropping dead a year before his sentence is up.

  4. Michelle says:

    Boo f*cking hoo. Give him just enough medicine to keep him alive but not enough where he is comfortable and not feeling pain. Put him on the same floor as the pedophiles and not lock his cell. Can this be arranged??

  5. KBeth says:

    I’ll cry about that later.

  6. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I don’t really care, do you?

  7. square_bologna says:

    A quick fatal heart attack is waaaaay better than he deserves.

  8. Seraphina says:

    Ha!!! Stress to becoming a piece of meat in prison and being treated the way he treated women!!!! Karma is a bitch and she is a female!!! Poetic justice.

  9. Rocķy says:

    Lol I bet he’s having chest pains. Panic is like that.

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Of course there are chest pains. That’s what happens when chickens come home to roost. He’ll have plenty of time to rest his weary heart when the bars are locked.

    This POS isn’t going to have any friends the way Cosby does. He knows his days will be hell from here on, until the day he dies. At least that’s my fantasy.

  12. Jekelly says:

    I hope he gets a very painful, long lasting illness that’s going to slowly kill him…

  13. Allergy says:

    Aw pooooor him

  14. Liz version 700 says:

    I hope someone called him a waaaaaaammmbukance uugh such a coward and a pervert.

    High profile people in Hollywood would still be supporting him if he had never been brought down. They all knew. They just were willing to look the other way or ignore it cause he could offer career success & oscars/other awards. What took him being in a vulnerable place to be brought down was only bc his films started bombing & lost their ‘oscarbait mojo’. Only THEN when all the people that were sucking up to him saw that, were they willing to condemn him. Weinstein was no longer a ‘kingmaker’ or whatever the Hollywood equivalent word would be. Only then was he disposable to all those ppl that were ok w/looking the other way if they got big things out of it.

    I want the world/history to NEVER👏FORGET Meryl Streep saying “I’d like to thank god…..Harvey Weinstein.” And then after his public, catalystic downfall, Streep had the gall to say she didn’t know anything like that was going on. REALLY Meryl? See that’s interesting, since you warned both your daughters about him when they decided they wanted to act. Guess all those other girls/women just didn’t matter, only Streep’s own offspring! also, THE AGENCIES were complicit. They knew what was happening, they sent countless actress in this predator’s ‘lion’s den’ aka his abusive/rapist clutches. CAA developed Times Up. What might be the agency with the most figurative blood on their hands started that…it wasn’t out of the goodness of their hearts or doing what’s right….

    Too bad, so sad.

    I hope he has pain in every cell in his body until the day he dies.

    Oh he’s definalty going to be placed in protective custody. Probably Administrative custody, housed alone with 23 hrs in and 1 hour out, since he is so high profile. Being said from a nurse that used to work in jail/prison. He is way too high profile to be placed anywhere else. You can believe he will have a price on his head in prison. The inmates will be looking for the first chance they can get to him. They CO’s will watch him like a hawk. Unless one of them has a daughter that has been sexually traumatized. Still they will have camera’s on him 24/7 to make sure he doesn’t commit suicide or is assualted by other inmates. Unfortunately, he will be pretty comfortable, well as much as he can be in prison.
