“Oh, there are articles in GQ and in the L.A. Times that describe people attending open houses to steal drugs, or having sex during open houses on people’s beds. That happens in this real-estate musical he directed that stars Anthony Rapp.
We hadn’t seen the articles. And we hadn’t heard of the movie, which is being distributed by the Weinsteins.
But in case this apology seemed like damage control–after all, the movie Open House might be boycotted by real-estate brokers!–Weinstein, Mirvish and friends are quick to turn their P.R. nightmare into the only press they’re likely to get.”
Is this for real?
(A hint might be the reference to the My Space page in the press release. That, and none actual quotes from feature headline players, The Weinsteins.)
