“Everyone knew what was up years ago,” a TMZ.com article claims, citing two Hollywood on-air jokes from 2012 and 2013 about sexual advances made by industry mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The October 10 article points to a joke Seth McFarlane made while announcing the 2012 “Best Supporting Actress” Oscar nominees and a five year-old joke on the sitcom“30 Rock.”

McFarlane said:

"Congratulations. You five ladies no longer have to pretend you're attracted to Harvey Weinstein,"

And, on a 2012 episode of “30 Rock,” an actress portrayed by Jane Krakowski declared:

"I'm not afraid of anyone in show business. I turned down intercourse with Harvey Weinstein on no less than three occasions … out of five."
