Leonardo DiCaprio Breaks His Silence On Harvey Weinstein

Leonardo DiCapriohas broken his silence on the slew of allegations waged against producerHarvey Weinstein.

In a statement posted on Facebook on Tuesday, DiCaprio said, “There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault— no matter who you are and no matter what profession.”

“I applaud the strength and courage of the women who came forward and made their voices heard,” he added.

The statement seemingly comes in response to stories from both theThe New York TimesandThe New Yorkerdetailing disturbingallegations of sexual assaultand abuse against Weinstein.

DiCaprio’s representatives did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
