Oliver Stone weighed in on the firestorm surrounding former mogul Harvey Weinstein that has spread across Hollywood, saying it is not right to condemn any man without a fair trial.

“I believe a man shouldn’t be condemned by a vigilante system. It’s not easy what he’s going through either,” the “Platoon” director said Thursday at the Busan International Film Festival while addressing international media.

“He was a rival and I never did business with him,” Stone continued “I’ve heard horror stories on everyone in the business. So, I’m not going to comment on that. I’ll wait and see, which is the right thing to do.”

While his comments appear neutral in nature, they didn’t sit well with many people on Twitter, with former Playboy Playmate Carrie Stevens saying: “When I heard about Harvey, I recalled Oliver walking past me & grabbing my boob as he walked out the front door of a party. Two of a kind!”

“F— you, Oliver Stone,” film writer and producer Scott Weinberg‏ bluntly tweeted.

“Oliver Stone has issues with women? But I’ve seen all of his films and oh wait that’s right I’m not surprised at all duh,” another Twitter user wrote.

Since last week’s New York Times article on Weinstein, A-list actresses — including Miramax’s brightest star Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Heather Graham, Lea Seydoux and many more — have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

Top executives like Jeffrey Katzenberg and UTA’s Jeremy Zimmer have condemned the mogul in internal memos and emails.

Great to see Americans got out in front of these Oliver Stone comments on Weinstein and started boycotting his films a decade ago.

Oliver – If you've heard the tape + still need to wait to make a judgment then you are the problem. When our heroes fall…FU for that.
