Brad Pitt is getting called out for his role in the Harvey Weinstein exposé She Said.
The film details the journey of reporters, editors, survivors and witnesses who chose to come forward to put an end to Harvey Weinstein's abuse.
Check the trailer out below:
The 70-year-old, who is serving a 23-year prison sentence in New York, has pleaded not guilty to 11 sexual assault charges against five women between 2004 to 2013.
Pitt is credited as one of the films executive producers and has been criticised by viewers who find it 'ironic' as the actor has faced allegations of abuse in the past.
It's also been alleged that Pitt knew about Weinstein's abusive nature after ex-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow told him about her experience with the producer, she claims.
After noticing that Pitt was credited as a producer, one person tweeted: "I’ll be honest I can’t take She Said seriously knowing it’s produced by Brad Pitt like it’s just too much of an irony."
"Brad Pitt being a producer for she said the movie about Harvey Weinstein is so funny bc he knew about Harvey for YEARS, continued to work with him, and never spoke out until it benefited him," a second person thought.
Another added: "Crazy how the one of the She Said movie producers is Brad Pitt like wtf."
Someone else tweeted: "Brad Pitt being a producer for the She Said film about Weinst*in is something so sick because he knew about Harvey for years, continued to work with him, and never spoke out about him."
UNILAD have contacted Brad Pitt's representatives for comment.
The official synopsis for She Said reads: "Two-time Academy Award® nominee Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman, An Education) and Emmy nominee Zoe Kazan (The Plot Against America, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation— a story that shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and impelled a shift in American culture that continues to this day.
"A testament to the incalculable importance of investigative journalism, She Said details the journey of reporters and editors engaged in the unrelenting pursuit of the truth and highlights the courage of survivors and witnesses who chose to come forward to stop an accused serial predator from committing further harm.
"Together, their commitment and fortitude sparked a global conversation, helped propel the #MeToo movement, and fueled a reckoning of the system that had enabled him.
"At its heart, She Said is an inspiring true story about people, many of them women, many of them mothers, who summoned the courage to speak out and seek justice, not just for themselves but for those in the future, both in the U.S. and around the globe.
"The film is a compelling, moving reminder of the power of individual people, armed with determination and grit, to, together, change the world."
She Said has been shown theatres since November 18, according to the trailer.
