Seth Macfarlane admits 'loathing' behind Oscars joke about Harvey Weinstein

Back in the walk-up to his gig hosting the Oscars in 2013, Seth MacFarlane made a joke on live TV about Harvey Weinstein - and actresses who "pretend to be attracted" to the indie mogul. One reporter recently detailed a story she was working on in 2004 that she says was gutted after Weinstein visited New York Times HQ to announce his displeasure. It was with this account in mind that, when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn't resist the opportunity to hake a hard swing in his direction. MacFarlane stood by his joke on Wednesday, saying in a tweet, "Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger".
Barth has since spoken out about her uncomfortable encounter with the 65-year-old filmmaker in his hotel room, alleging to The New Yorker on Tuesday, October 10, that her meeting with Weinstein "alternated between offering to cast her in a film and demanding a naked massage in bed". The film producer was revealed to have been paying off Hollywood actresses for sexual assault and harassment for decades. Some have pointed to the clip as a tacit admission that Weinstein's behavior has always been known, but not discussed or confronted, in Hollywood.
As previously reported, MacFarlane poked fun at the former studio executive's relationships with A-list actresses during the annual award show's nomination announcement special. I can see why MacFarlane would remain quiet if Barth had requested he do that. It got to the point that Barth herself chose to step in, urging them to stop "slamming Seth for not "doing" anything".
"Oh my god, seriously!?" STOP! He was respecting my decision! Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time, ' Georgina Chapman said in a statement.
She later added, "To everyone bad-mouthing Seth, how about applauding him for being one of FEW men in Hollywood speaking out!"
MacFarlane took to Twitter to share the story with Barth having shared her experience publicly now.
MacFarlane added,"There is nothing more abhorrent and indefensible than abuse of power such as this".
