The actress Uma Thurman pledged in a recent interview that she would speak up about sexual harassment in Hollywood when she felt ready.
On Thanksgiving, in a searing Instagram post that referred to the producer Harvey Weinstein, she began to make good on that pledge.
In the post, paired with an image of the avenging warrior she played in the “Kill Bill” films, Ms. Thurman said she had “a few reasons” of her own to be angry, pointing to the #MeToo movement of women who have been speaking out against sexual harassment and assault.
While she did not elaborate on her own experience, she called out Mr. Weinstein, who has been accused of assault by multiple women, and his “wicked conspirators.”
I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face.
I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned
The New York Times published an investigative report on Oct. 5 detailing decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Mr. Weinstein. In the days that followed, more women began to come forward with allegations against Mr. Weinstein and other powerful men across industries.
Mr. Weinstein, through a lawyer, has denied all allegations of nonconsensual behavior.
Ms. Thurman has mostly kept quiet about the controlled fury she displayed last month during a widely seen interview with “Access Hollywood,” in which she was asked to comment on the actresses who were speaking out.
“I think it’s commendable,” Ms. Thurman said at the time. “And I don’t have a tidy sound bite for you. Because I have learned — I am not a child — and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself. So I have been waiting to feel less angry. And when I am ready, I will say what I have to say.”
