Hollywood Reporter profile, childhood[edit]

Hi there! I just went to add some of the interesting information available on Weinstein's childhood, regarding his relationship with his Uncle "Shimmy" from Feb 28 The Hollywood Reporter piece, and I noticed the article is protected. I'd love to add the following under Early life:

Weinstein had a close relationship with a salesman neighbor, Sallbarry Greenblatt, whom Weinstein and his childhood friend Peter Adler called "Uncle Shimmy."[1] In seventh grade, inspired by Greenblatt's advice, Weinstein and a friend wore discarded Boy Scout uniforms and sold cookies door to door that they had purchased wholesale, making a profit.[1] EmilyvstheGorn (talk) 19:55, 29 March 2018 (UTC)


  1. ^ a b Johnson, Scott (28 February 2018). "Young Harvey Weinstein: The Making of a Monster". The Hollywood Reporter. Retrieved 28 March 2018. 

The quality and verifiability of that source could be questioned, and depicts Weinstein and his community in a less-than-philanthropic light. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:54, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Kill-Bill style sword[edit]

In 2018, Weinstein recieved a cryptic message sent with a sword. From Japan, victim`s agent sent a message about editing. Something influenced New York circles to go easy on Weinstein and hard on detractors about Weinsteins problematic and inappropriate style.

Surely worth a mention in the article?[1]  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:12, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

First line, please change "is an American former film producer." to was an American film producer, to align the tense of the grammar. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:11, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
