Lupita Nyong’o has spoken on her encounter with Harvey Weinstein who is currently embattled with sexual assault allegations.
The beautiful actress who took to her Instagram page on Friday, November 10, 2017, to speak on what she calls an unconscious prejudice against black women.
She said, “Harvey led me into a bedroom ”” his bedroom ”” and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times.
“I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation. Before long he said he wanted to take off his pants. I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable. He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that. “If we’re not going to watch the film, I really should head back to school,” I said.”
Lupita also spoke about her second encounter with Harvey Weinstein where he tried to get a private room for both of them after a dinner with friends and she declined. Lupita Nyong’o also said she felt threatened by Harvey after she declined his offer and she tried to ask if they were in good terms, his response wasÂ “I don’t know about your career, but you’ll be fine.”
Lupita is not happy with women magazine, Grazia for editing her photo without her permission on their cover.
She said she should have been consulted before taking off her natural hair from the cover.
” As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are.
