Donald Trump Jr. castigated Hollywood for its "BS lectures" in the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal this week, tweeting they can go back to "pretending to be something they're not."

Weinstein, the powerful movie mogul and Democratic megadonor, is facing decades of allegations of sexual harassment and assault by women ranging from famous actresses to television journalists.

"Maybe Hollywood will finally end their BS lectures & go back to doing what they do best … pretending to be something they're not. Oh wait," Trump Jr. wrote on Wednesday.

Trump Jr. has been criticized for his stance on Hollywood's response to Weinstein in light of the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape that came out last year, in which his father boasted of grabbing women "by the pussy" and that he could do whatever he wanted to women because he was famous.
