who ever made it to stardom without it,

Another powerful businessman in the entertainment industry has toppled from his pedestal in disgrace over accusations of sexual misconduct from a plethora of women in the entertainment industry, some very well known and powerful in their own rights. Harvey Weinstein joins the parade of entertainment moguls who have been accused of long-term sexual harassment of and/or assaults on women.

And now The New York Times reports that two more highly-placed men are facing sexual misconduct allegations; one is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter.
