This Is Exactly Why ‘90s Heartthrob Jason Priestley Punched Harvey Weinstein In the Face In 1995

Since world-famous movie producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct on a massive scale, many other stories have come out about the man and the system of which he was a part. One of these tales involves an altercation between Weinstein and Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Jason Priestley. And in December 2017 Priestley explained what happened between the pair to apparently provoke his ire.

The conversation came up after news hit that Weinstein may have blacklisted actresses in the industry. And while this claim remains unproven, it nevertheless got people talking. For instance, actress Tara Strong wrote on Twitter that she feared her friend Priestley may have been blacklisted as a result of his fight with the producer.
