"Make no mistake, this came from a place of loathing and anger", MacFarlane continued.

Seth MacFarlane has opened up about his now-infamous joke about Harvey Weinstein at the Oscar nomination ceremony in 2013, revealing the dark truth behind it. One reporter recently detailed a story she was working on in 2004 that she says was gutted after Weinstein visited New York Times HQ to announce his displeasure.

When hosting the Oscars five years ago, Seth MacFarlane made a bold joke about Harvey Weinstein. It was with this account in mind that, when I hosted the Oscars in 2013, I couldn't resist the opportunity to hake a hard swing in his direction.

Barth quickly came to MacFarlane's defense, saying MacFarlane was "respecting my wishes" by not confronting Weinstein.

MacFarlane wasn't the only comedian to reference Weinstein's alleged sexual misdeeds long before the New York Times story made them public; Tina Fey's hit NBC sitcom 30 Rock took aim at Weinstein on two occasions, with Jane Krakowski's character Jenna Maroney noting, "I have turned down sex with Harvey Weinstein on no less than three occasions".

Seth claims Jessica Barth confided in him about her brush with Weinstein and that's what inspired his dig at the movie mogul. In response to those claims, Weinstein acknowledged that he has "caused a lot of pain" and apologized for his inappropriate behavior and added, "I so respect all women and regret what happened".

As allegations against disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein pile up, more and more celebrities are coming forward to either confirm or deny their own pre-existing knowledge about the situation. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

"Mr Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual". I sat down with my wife Georgina, who I love more than anything, and we discussed what was best for our family.

"I understand, I love her and I love our children and hopefully, when I am better, I will be in their lives again".
