Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct toward women spanning decades, and now, newly released audio seems to validate the claims of his multiple accusers. 

Harvey Weinstein is heard pressuring a young actress into watching him shower and admitting to groping her in the audio, which was allegedly captured during an NYPD sting operation. 

The NYPD has not confirmed the authenticity of the tape; however, the department did confirm they investigated a misdemeanor sexual abuse complaint against Weinstein in 2015.

WIBC host Tony Katz called the audio disturbing, noting Hollywood's hypocrisy and relative silence in the wake of the Weinstein charges.
