Uma Thurman unloads on Harvey Weinstein
UMA Thurman has indicated she was an alleged victim of Harvey Weinstein.
In an Instagram post today, Thurman wished people a Happy Thanksgiving before writing: "(Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I'm glad it's going slowly - you don't deserve a bullet) - stay tuned."
Included in the post was a picture of Thurman from Kill Bill: Volume 2, a film produced by Weinstein's Miramax company.
The post was liked over 25,000 times alone in the first hour by Thurman's 555,000 followers and it was greeted with a widespread showing of support.
"You have a right to your anger, I'm glad you survived," wrote one follower.
Another wrote: "Keep up the good fight".
Thurman starred in a number of Miramax movies including the Kill Bill series and Pulp Fiction.
H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others. I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so... Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I’m glad it’s going slowly - you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman
She joins a growing number of women who have made allegations of sexual harassment against Weinstein.
"I don't have a tidy sound bite for you," she said.
"Because, I have learned I am not a child, and I have learned that when I've spoken in anger I usually regret the way I express myself."
She finished: "So I've been waiting to feel less angry and when I am ready, I will say what I have to say."
Thurman didn't yell, swear, rant or even speak for very long, but the sheer emotion underpinning her words hung heavily in the air.
Her response has resonated with thousands of people on social media.
One of the top comments on a social media post of the interview was: "God love her. She's been hurt quite badly, you can feel it in this clip, and Pulp Fiction was a Weinstein film. I support her as we all do".
"Damn straight super smart woman #UMA," said another Twitter user.
"This gives me the chills," added one more.
In the midst of the sexual assault allegations pouring out of Hollywood, an online campaign called #metoo took over social media.
Alyssa Milano, who starred in Charmed alongside Rose McGowan, shared a screenshot of the campaign and asked people to reply with the words "me too".
Thurman included the #metoo hashtag in her Instagram post.
