Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton neglected to mention the sexual harassment accusations against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein during a 90-minute speech Monday night.

Clinton addressed a crowd at the University of California, Davis on topics like climate change, recent natural disasters and the National Football League protests of the national anthem. Clinton, however, didn’t talk about the women that have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexually harassing them and allegedly paying them off throughout the years.

Weinstein, a big-time donor to the Democratic Party, has donated to the Clintons in the past. During the 1990s, Weinstein gave money to support former President Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund, while Clinton attended multiple fundraisers that Weinstein worked on during the 2016 campaign. The Clintons also rented a Hampton house in 2015 that was right next door to Weinstein’s.

While Clinton had little to say about the Weinstein accusations, she had plenty to say about football players kneeling during the national anthem at football games and how the country needs to stand up to homophobia and racism.

“Let’s be clear, those players aren’t protesting the national anthem or the flag,” Clinton said. “They’re protesting racism and injustice, and they have every right to do so!”
