The disgraced studio executive's abhorrent behavior has finally been made public, thanks to bombshell investigations by The New York Times and The New Yorker.

Paltrow joined the list of Weinstein accusers in a >New York Times interview on Tuesday. Like many other women who have come forward, she said the producer would bring her into his bedroom, place hands on her and ask for massages. “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” Paltrow said.

As soon as she's promoted to executive in season 2 episode 3—airing on NBC this Thursday night—Fey starts sexually harassing every employee in sight. Perhaps not a direct reference to Weinstein (his behavior, as many have commented, is not new or rare), but it couldn’t be more timely.
