Harvey Weinstein Pens 'Desperate Email' To 'CEOs, Moguls' Before Firing

"I could really use your support ... I am desperate for your help."

The situation surrounding Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations has only continued to worsen.

A desperate email from the film executive surfaced on Monday afternoon, courtesy of Janice Min, a strategist at Eldridge Industries and part owner of The Hollywood Reporter. Min tweeted out a transcribed iteration of an email she claims was read to her “by a disgusted (male) recipient.” She also noted that the email was sent to Hollywood “CEOs, moguls” mere hours before Weinstein was fired from his role at The Weinstein Company.

“My board is thinking of firing me,” the letter reads. “All I’m asking, is let me take a leave of absence and get into heavy therapy and counseling. Whether it be in a facility or somewhere else, allow me to resurrect myself with a second chance.”

Weinstein boldly asks the recipients to send a letter to his private Gmail address that “backs” him and states their opposition to the board firing him.

“I am desperate for your help,” he writes.

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