Maybe Spielberg thought he was above the whole media circus and sometimes it's dignified not to comment on scandals?

I think he's basically retired and enjoying the fruits of his previous labor and not involved in all this nonsense. Good for him.

Hollywood is a boys' club. Someone like Spielberg, arguably, the best known director of all time (to the masses he is probably the only director whose name alone carries as much clout and cachet as the biggest box office star actors of all time) must have certainly known what was going on with all those perverts who engaged in casting couch practices and preyed on all those women. He is just looking the other way and staying above the fray.

Those who live in glass houses and cast stones and all... It’s one step away from everyone calling out every pieced of dirty laundry in Hollywood since the 60’s.

Why do we expect everyone to comment? It's pretty evident what Weinstein did was widely known and horrible. Do we expect everyone to offer comment? Where do we stop? Why hasn't the gaffer on Goonies commented yet? Or the wardrobe supervisor for The Last Emperor? What could their silence mean?

Why should Spielberg, a Hollywood director, comment on Weinstein, a NY producer? He's not involved in this mess.

I imagine Spielberg has people (men) inside his production company who have broken the rules just like Weinstein...if he hasn't himself---I haven't heard bad stuff about Spielberg through the years as tempremental, drama-Queen, verbally abusive to actors---so maybe he himself didn't use his power like Weinstein--

But Hollywood is about power--glamorous, talented, wealthy power...
And it seems that people tend to use power to get what they want when they want it from whom they want it...if they can't get it (whatever it is) the regular way...
So maybe Spielberg knows he has people like that and he really is trying not to draw attention by being a Hypocrit and then being called out for Mr. Z working for him...
