More than 80 women have accused Harvey of alleged incidents that span several decades. Finally, on Friday, those who suffered at the hands of Weinstein saw him handcuffed and lead away.
He is charged with four offences, including rape and a criminal sex act on two women. The 66-year-old's lawyer told reporters he was likely to plead not guilty.
Below, see how celebrities - many of whom were personally affected by Weinstein - are reacting to the arrest.
