Harvey Weinstein is losing powerful Hollywood allies left and right.

As we previously reported, the movie mogul was fired from his company, The Weinstein Company, after The New York Times published an investigation exposing three decades of sexual harassment allegations. Unsurprisingly, many A-listers were quick to denounce Weinstein following the explosive exposé.

The latest stars to distance themselves from Harvey are industry vets George Clooney and Kevin Smith. GOOD!

Although Weinstein gave Clooney his first big break in the film From Dusk till Dawn, Amal Clooney‘s husband made sure to call the disgraced producer’s actions “indefensible.”

In a statement to the Daily Beast, George noted:

“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with. Harvey’s admitted to it, and it’s indefensible.”

You can say that again, bud! And while George has heard “rumors” about Harvey over the years, he only heard gossip that “certain actresses had slept with Harvey to get a role” and dismissed the chit chat as he thought it wasn’t true.

In regards to the multiple sexual harassment settlements, Clooney defends that he was 100% in the dark. He continued:

“I’ve known Harvey for twenty years. ├óΓé¼┬ª But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ ever… I didn’t hear anything about that and I don’t know anyone that did. That’s a whole other level and there’s no way you can reconcile that. There’s nothing to say except that it’s indefensible.”

Preach. The Oscar winner is REALLY worked up over this Weinstein scandal as he specifically brought up Lauren Sivan‘s encounter with Harvey. The Hollywood hunk concluded:

“I mean, cornering a young anchorwoman in the kitchen and jerking off into a potted plant? That’s not just some rumor about Harvey hitting on a woman; it’s disturbing on a whole lot of levels, because there had to be a lot of people involved in covering that up.”

It’s gonna be okay, dude. We mean, you’re not the one who masturbated into a potted plant!

Still, George isn’t the only one left SHOOKETH over this controversy, as Smith took to Twitter on Monday and wrote:

Hopefully, more men in Hollywood will follow in George and Kevin’s footsteps. The only way to end this type of behavior is to not enable it, folks!!
