Harvey Weinstein is an American film producer accused by over 50 women of harassment or assault.
In October 2017, The New York Times and The New Yorker reported that more than a dozen women had accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape. This began a flood of similar charges, his wife left him, Weinstein was sacked and honours were stripped from him.
On Friday 25 May 2018 he was charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for alleged incidents involving two separate women, after he earlier surrendered to authorities in New York. 
Weinstein employed Black Cube to gather information about women accusing him to try to help him escape conviction. Asher Tishler, a member of Black Cube’s advisory board, remarked “In retrospect, it’s a shame we took the job.“
In his article A man hears what he wants to hear for the Canadian Free Press, Brooklyn Lowe suggests that "Everyone knew for years, both inside and outside Hollywood, that Harvey Weinstein was/is a suspected rapist; just as everyone knows that Bill Clinton was/is a suspected rapist" and suggests that the allegations may have been timed as a distraction from difficult to explain circumstances of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting.
