The series of tweets starts with an account of the first time Headey ever met the producer. She writes:

Unfortunately, the story doesn't end there and the actor was forced to face Weinstein once again several years later. She explains:

Following inquiries by the New York Times and the New Yorker, women have come forward almost every day with shocking stories of Weinstein using his power and influence to abuse women.

These testimonies have been followed up by other accusations in the world of show business. Amazon's programming chief Roy Price quit his position after being accused of harassment by Man in the High Castle producer Isa Hackett.
