TBH I'm surprised that there's so much surprise around this. Leaving out the rape claims ( which came after he'd already been kicked out) much of it is commonly known as standard practice in Hollywood. It's stuff that's even the basis for cliches in pop culture. Again, leaving out the rape claims, there's one thing that comes across from Weinstein that I believe - to him his behavior was okay.
