In 2017, allegations of sexual abuse perpetrated by Weinstein made headlines as more and more women came forward to share their stories of mistreatment in Hollywood ultimately leading to the #MeToo and Times Up movement.
Watching Weinstein's projects and cameos now generates a much darker mood than when the productions were filmed, as many social media users noted.

Other social media, users noted the big differences between the likeness of the Weinstein character and Weinstein himself. In the Barbie movie, Weinstein is portrayed as tall and muscular with a full head of hair which users noted is not what Weinstein looked like in 2005.
This is what he looked like in 2005 btw. The likeness is uncanny!pic.twitter.com/xP0VjrIG9E
