‘Weinstein Effect’ goes global as powerful men confronted
The sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein that rocked Hollywood and sparked a flurry of allegations in other American industries, as well as the political arena, are reaching far beyond U.S. borders. Emboldened by the women, and men, who have spoken up, the “Weinstein Effect” is rippling across the globe.
Nearly half of the “#metoo” mentions since the movement has been launched have come from outside the U.S., and decades-old accusations have led to the downfall of some of those countries’ most powerful men. Here’s a look at where the fallout — and the falls — have reverberated most strongly, from the United Kingdom and Israel to India and Peru.

Tell me if you’ve heard this before: someone makes a comment on Twitter and looses his family, his job, and or his freedom. This pretty much happens to Brian the dog character on the Family Guy show. He makes a stupid joke on Twitter and the entire town turns into a set of social justice warriors. To keep their family safe from the radicals that are terrorizing them the Griffins through Brian out. It end with the Brian eat budget store mac and cheese in a low rent apartment.
With the thought provoking show The Orville and this episodic arc for Brian I hope Seth MacFarlane is stepping away from his lowest common denominator humor that most of his recent television outings have degrading into.
