Uma Thurman Has Called Out Harvey Weinstein In A Brutal Thanksgiving Message

"I’m glad it’s going slowly - you don’t deserve a bullet."

Uma Thurman has released a succinct and effective statement via Instagram regarding the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal, saying that the alleged sexual abuser and his conspirators don’t even deserve a bullet.

Channeling her character from the film Kill Bill in both tone and image, the award winning actress posted a “Thanksgiving” message, which doubled as a #MeToo statement, in which she says she was also the victim of sexual misconduct.

“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,” she wrote to her large Instagram following. The text was accompanied by a still from Kill Bill Vol. 2, in which her character is undertaking a campaign of justice and revenge against someone who had grievously wronged her.

“I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!” she wrote.

“(Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – You don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned…”

When the allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein were first made public, a red carpet interview with Thurman went viral, which had a similar message to this latest post. It was tweeted by Asia Argento, an actor and director who is among Weinstein’s accusers.

“I am not a child, and I have learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,” Thurman told a journalist in the clip,

“I’m waiting until I feel less angry… And when I’m ready I’ll say what I have to say.”

Dozens of women have now alleged sexual harassment by Weinstein, with police investigations currently under way. Thurman herself has appeared in films produced by The Weinstein Company, including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, both directed by Quentin Tarantino.
