Benedict Cumberbatch On Harvey Weinstein’s ‘toxicity’ Wake

The actor previously worked with Weinstein on the 2014 film, “The Imitation Game,” for which Cumberbatch won an Academy Award.
After the allegations against Weinstein were brought by The New York Times and The New Yorker in October, Cumberbatch released a statement.
“I am utterly disgusted by the continuing revelations of Harvey Weinstein’s horrifying and unforgivable actions,” he said at the time. “We need to collectively stand up and support victims of abuse such as the brave and inspiring women who have spoken out against him and say we hear you and believe you.”
The allegations led to Weinstein being fired by The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded in 2005, ongoing criminal investigations and the company’s bankruptcy. As it stands, the allegations against Weinstein range from harassment to rape, include the stories of more than 80 women and span several decades.
Weinstein has repeatedly denied “any allegations of non-consensual sex.”
CNN has reached out to the film’s production companies for comment.
