Hollywood liberals have found another cause to rally behind: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski

From Harrison Ford and Whoopi Goldberg to Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood pals of director Roman Polanski have banded together since his arrest on Sunday to demand his release.

Polanski was on route to the Zurich Film Festival this week when Swiss police arrested him for a charge stemming from raping a California girl in the 1970s. Polanski pleased guilty to the crime in 1978, but escaped to France before he could be sentenced.

“I know it wasn’t ‘rape’ rape. I think it was something else, but I don’t believe it was ‘rape’ rape,” said Whoopi Goldberg this week on The View.

“He pled guilty to having sex with a minor and he went to jail, and when they let him out (on bail, pending sentencing), he said, ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me 100 years in jail. I’m not staying.’ And that’s why he left,” she said, explaining her decision to support him.

“We will have to speak to our leaders … particularly in California,” wrote studio head Harvey Weinstein in an op-ed in the UK’s Independent. “I’m not too shy to go and talk to the Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and to ask him once and for all to look at this.” (Fox News)

  1. This is absolutely disgusting. He was found guilty of a terrible crime and decided he should not have to face the consequences of it. It is unacceptable. Polanski raped a child, period. How would these stars feel if the same thing happened to their children?

  2. Whoopi, what a disgusting commentary on a devastating issue that still plagues our society today. Polanski is GUILTY and for you to go on national tv and say otherwise makes me question your judgement and moral fiber.
