The disgraced media mogul [Harvey Weinstein] appeared Wednesday at an event put on by Actor’s Hour at the Downtime Bar in New York City and was confronted by at least three women, including performers Amber Rollo, Kelly Bachman and Zoe Stuckless, during the evening. The actresses and audience members claim they were heckled and ultimately asked to leave.
In a Twitter thread after the event, Rollo wrote, “I was shocked to see him out, but not because I thought he would have shame, he is a sociopath and clearly has no shame. I’m shocked that he was at an event put on by and for artists.”
She further said that Weinstein was invited by Actor’s Hour to participate in the evening. “Not only was he invited, he was supported,” wrote Rollo. “My friend and badass comedian Kelly Bachman was performing on the show and when she went after the “Freddy Krueger” in the room she was booed and told to shut up.”
Rollo went on to describe the evening, a “speakeasy” for artists, according to its event description: “Some people didn’t realize what was going on, some artists knew and were scared and some were outright supporting this fucking serial rapist monster…”
Following the threads on social media and much discussion after the fact, the bar addressed concerns to their patrons.
“We want to address some concerns about a recent incident at Downtime,” a spokesperson wrote on Facebook. “A company called Actor’s Hour rented our bar for a private event, with a guest list all their own. Shortly into the evening, one guest began heckling another, causing a disturbance to everyone in attendance. After several requests to stop were ignored, we kindly asked the heckler to leave.”
The statement continued: “Please know that our goal at Downtime is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome. We respect the privacy of our patrons and event partners, and want to ensure that all guests are treated equally, with the same service and respect. In keeping with this goal, we made a decision that would allow the evening to continue as planned. Thank you, Downtime.”
