VIDEO: Harvey Weinstein Defends Use Of 'The Butler' Title On CBS Morning Show, WB Responds

on July 09, 2013

The official response from Warner Bros:

The Weinstein Company, as the New York Times has noted, is following an oft-trodden path of creating "well-publicized controversies" in order to promote their films by disseminating deliberate misinformation about the true nature of this dispute. The Weinsteins are sophisticated experts in this arena and three neutral arbitrators have penalized them for blatantly disregarding MPAA rules. It goes without saying that Warner Bros. has no issue with Lee Daniels' film (never has) and fully supports the artistic goals of the filmmakers. The Weinsteins' suggestions to the contrary are deeply offensive and untrue.
