One user wrote, “Harvey Weinstein has tested positive fro Covid-19. Oh, Karma. You sweet, little nasty b****. I love you.” Others used the opportunity to express concerns over how Harvey was granted access to a test, whilst ordinary Americans cannot.
“Harvey Weinstein went to jail a couple of weeks ago for sexual assault & now has tested positive for the Coronavirus.
