Harvey Weinstein’s exposure as a sleazy man who allegedly used his powerful position to sexually exploit, harass and assault women has opened a can of worms.
As initial reports of his alleged sexual misconduct were backed up by dozens of women sharing their stories, attention also turned to other predators and dinosaurs in the entertainment industry. After all, Harvey Weinstein can’t be the only sleazy man in Hollywood.
It didn’t take long for Twitter users to unearth footage of radio host Howard Stern chatting to former Spice Girl Emma Bunton in 2005. The dialogue is not so much an interview as a chance for the 63-year-old American radio personality to interrogate and sexually harass Bunton with lines such as, “I feel like you’re not wearing panties, I get that vibe”.

Here is some more of the interview. Sexual harassment gets even more inappropriate. If this was a ‘regular’ work situation, he’d be sacked. pic.twitter.com/9NbvpnONvI
