In the past couple of weeks, more and more actors and actresses have been speaking out about Harvey Weinstein’s reputation for sexual harassment. But apparently, Courtney Love was one of the first to do so, back in 2005. In a red carpet interview at the Pamela Anderson Comedy Central Roast, comedienne Natasha Leggero asked if she could offer any advice to young women moving to Hollywood.

The singer appeared to consider whether she should be frank as she looked away from the camera and said, “Umm...I’ll get libeled if I say it.” But after a moment’s pause she turned back to the camera and said, “If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in The Four Seasons...don’t go.”

Apparently her hesitation was justified—after the clip resurfaced on TMZ, Love tweeted, “Although I wasn't one of his victims, I was eternally banned by CAA [Creative Arts Agency] for speaking out against #HarveyWeinstein #rape.”
