Bourdain said in a blog post last week that when the director he had hired to shoot the episode had to undergo emergency surgery he hired Argento to take over, noting it was 'fair to say' he and the actress were 'quite close.'  

Bourdain has been one of Argento's most vocal supporters on social media ever since she came forward with her allegations, and after her powerful speech tweeted: 'Brava @AsiaArgento. An absolutely fearless off-script nuclear bomb of a speech to a stunned crowd at #.'

He also thanked Spike Lee for making a point of speaking to Argento after she shared her remarks, with the actress later noting most attendees avoided her in the wake of her speech. 

It was Clement who posted the speech after accompanying Argento to the ceremony, writing: 'The powerful speech @AsiaArgento [delievered] during the closing ceremony of . "I was raped here in 1997 by Harvey Weinstein."

In her remarks Argento also stated:  'This festival was his hunting ground. I want to make a prediction: Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here ever again. He will live in disgrace, shunned by a film community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes.'
