On Thursday, Uma Thurman took to social media to express all the things she’s grateful for in 2017. Chief among them is the downfall of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. In a blazing Instagram post, Thurman cut straight to the point and sent a strong message to Weinstein and his "wicked conspirators."
"I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others," Thurman stated, alongside a picture of herself as Beatrix Kiddo in Kill Bill. "I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – You don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman."
The Oscar-nominated actress has starred in several Weinstein-produced films, including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill series. However, Thurman has chosen to participate in this huge moment of change in Hollywood by acknowledging some deep-rooted traumas of her past.
In an October interview with Access Hollywood, Thurman was asked to comment on Weinstein’s sexual misconduct allegations, and her response made the interview go viral. "I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you because I’ve learned I am not a child and I have learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself," Thurman explained. "So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say."
Thurman’s Kill Bill co-star Daryl Hannah is one of the women who has accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct. On one occasion, Hannah claimed that she was forced to barricade herself inside of a hotel room to keep Weinstein out. She shared her horrific encounter with Quentin Tarantino, who directed the Kill Bill series, as well as Thurman.
Tarantino has previously admitted about knowing "enough to do more than I did." This marks the first time that Thurman has taken a public stand against Weinstein who is currently under investigation by police in New York, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and the U.K. for the numerous sexual assault accusations against him.
