Weinstein was involved in so many projects and business dealings and thankfully a lot of those are now falling through. He’s surely frantically trying to save his failing empire as he lounges in that luxury resort in Arizona. Poor predator having to face minor consequences for raping, abusing and ruining women’s careers for decades. As Kaiser mentioned he probably won’t spend a day in jail. Now that we’re learning about the extent of Weinstein’s reach and power it’s making me sick to think of all his potential victims. He was an executive producer on Project Runway, where his wife, Marchesa founder Georgina Chapman, was often a guest judge. In the wake of the news about Weinstein, Heidi Klum, also an executive producer and the host of PR, has issued a general statement. Heidi doesn’t say whether she heard about Weinstein prior to this and she doesn’t say whether he was inappropriate toward her. She should not have to specify either of those things, I’m just saying she did not and chose to put out a more general statement about male abuse of power and the prevalence of harassment in the workplace.

“I wish I could say that the horrible stories I read about Harvey Weinstein are a rare occurrence in our society, but that is simply not the case. We would be naive to think that this behavior only happens in Hollywood,” Klum, 44, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“This is one example of the more pervasive problem of the mistreatment of women around the world. I think it would be hard to find a woman – myself included – who have not had an experience where they have felt intimidated or threatened by a man using his power, position or his physical stature,” the Project Runway host and judge says.

“I truly admire these brave women who are coming forward to share their stories because change cannot come unless there is a dialogue and people are held accountable,” she concludes.

Klum’s statements come after Weinstein, 65, was stripped of his executive producer credit on the Lifetime reality show competition.

Since Project Runway‘s premiere in 2012, the movie mogul’s former studio, The Weinstein Company, has been co-producing the show along with Bunim-Murray Productions.

A source tells PEOPLE it’s unclear what will happen going forward as TWC owns a majority in Project Runway.
