Meryl Streep is none too pleased that Harvey Weinstein invoked her name as part of his defense against a class action lawsuit.

“Harvey Weinstein’s attorneys’ use of my (true) statement — that he was not sexually transgressive or physically abusive in our business relationship — as evidence that he was not abusive with many OTHER women is pathetic and exploitive,” Streep said in a statement to The Blast.

“The criminal actions he is accused of conducting on the bodies of these women are his responsibility,” she continues, “and if there is any justice left in the system he will pay for them — regardless of how many good movies, made by many good people, Harvey was lucky enough to have acquired or financed.”

As The Blast first reported, Weinstein referenced Streep by saying she had stated publicly that “Weinstein had always been respectful to her in their working relationship.”
