Kevin Smith To Donate Weinstein Project Residuals To Women’s Nonprofit

Weinstein’s two previous companies, Miramax and The Weinstein Company, produced some of Smith’s most notable movies including the 1994 comedy “Clerks,” which made him a star.
Smith told the podcast’s studio audience that he’s not a victim, but he appeared shaken by the controversy.
“It’s been a weird f***ing week,” Smith said, his voice at times breaking. “I just wanted to make some f***ing movies, that’s it. That’s why I came, that’s why I made ‘Clerks.'”
“And no f***ing movie is worth all this,” he added.” Like, my entire career, f**k it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really f***ing horrible.”
Smith said he feels horrible that he didn’t help and “because I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend, like he was my father.”
So to atone for that Smith has decided to donate his residuals of $2,000 per month to Women In Film, an organization which bills itself as a nonprofit dedicated to promoting diversity in the media arts.
“That feels like a start,” Smith said. “Hopefully that goes to people that get to make s**t without having to deal with some f***ing animal saying, ‘Here’s the price.'”
CNN has reached out to Women In Film for comment.
