In the wake of sexual recent harassment allegations made by actresses and employees, Harvey Weinstein fired off a last minute plea for support to Hollywood Execs. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Ron Meyer and Jeffery Katzenberg were among the recipients of Weinstein’s email, which stated:

“My board is thinking of firing me. All I’m asking, is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling.” He added … “A lot of the allegations are false as you know but given therapy and counseling as other have done, I think I’d be able to get there.”

Harvey Weinstein’s plea for support was unsuccessful and TWC board members fired him from the company he co-founded with his brother Bob Weinstein in 2005.

Harvey Weinstein’s complete email below:

My board is thinking of firing me. All I’m asking, is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling. Whether it be in a facility or somewhere else, allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance. A lot of the allegations are false as you know but given therapy and counseling as other people have done, I think I’d be able to get there.

I could really use your support or just your honesty if you can’t support me.

But if you can, I need you to send a letter to my private gmail address. The letter would only go to the board and no one else. We believe what the board is trying to do is not only wrong but might be illegal and would destroy the company. If you could write this letter backing me, getting me the help and time away I need, and also stating your opposition to the board firing me, it would help me a lot. I am desperate for your help. Just give me the time to have therapy. Do not let me be fired. If the industry supports me, that is all I need.

With all due respect, I need the letter today.

What do you think?
