Harvey Weinstein is known for being very outspoken, and he won't censor himself for anybody. Oftentimes this can be a hilarious trait, but at the expense of others. This is certainly one of those times when Weinstein did something pretty outlandish that is also extremely funny.

Back in 1988, Weinstein wrote a letter to Errol Morris, who directed the documentary THE THIN BLUE LINE, which went on to become a critical hit. Harvey felt that Morris was not selling the film correctly, and called him out on it. Whether or not you think Harvey was right in doing this, I'm still tickled.
