What happen to Asia Argento in Italy after she claimed she was raped by Harvey Weinstein.
Among the women involved in the sexual scandal of Harvey Weinstein, Asia Argento is the only Italian actress. She claimed she was harassed by the Hollywood producer at the age of 21 in a hotel room. But she did not get a lot of support and compassion in Italy.
Asia Argento claimed Weinstein invited her in a hotel room when she was 21 and he forced her to oral sex. Then she talks about a complicated relationship with him in the next years and about consesual sex episodes later. In some interviews she said she feared to have her carreer crushed and she talks about the shame and sense of guilt she felt.
In the scandal Henry Weinstein, Asia Argento claims caused hard reactions in Italy.
But not against the producer. She was accused it’s an attempt to boost her career: hey, you don’t wait 20 years to denounce a rape. They said that she exploited sex to have roles in movies, to be a liar and a prostitute.
A national newspaper title was, more or less: first they do it, than they whine and fake a regret.
Some days after the accuse to Weinstein, Asia Argento got the support on many female voices and a female journalist launched on twitter the hashtag #quallavoltache (#thattimewhen) inviting women to post harassment episodes they went through.
