Now that the “open secret” of Harvey Weinstein’s sex misconduct is just out in the open, and no longer a secret, everyone’s got something to say about it.

And with good reason. Those who didn’t know( or allegation not to have known) are eager to distance themselves; those who were pressured or frightened into silence finally seem free to speak up; and many, many people are eager to discuss the systematic discrimination that enabled Weinstein for decades.

In some lawsuits, victims of other predators were inspired to share their own tales. In others, people with their own histories of assault or harassment found that their comments opened them up to wider scrutiny. Some delivered thoughtful essays or monologues, while others summed up their reckons in a tweet.

Below is a lengthy but inevitably incomplete list of celebrities who’ve commented on Weinstein since the initial New York Times bombshell.
