Late night TV host Samantha Bee has issued a blistering message as the Harvey Weinstein controversy continues to blow up, warning others like him that their days are numbered.

"Listen up, creeps of Hollywood," she said.

"We know who you are. Women talk to each other, and we talk to journalists - and we talk to lawyers. It's 2017. We don't have to put up with this shit. We are coming for you."

Bee's warning came at the end of a powerful Full Frontal monologue that addressed some of the commentary around the Weinstein news stories and destroyed his 'apology'.

"Gimme a break, White Cosby! Nobody asked for your all-about-mea-culpa. Don't blame the '60s and '70s for your shitty decision making - it's serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo."

Vanity Fair writes that female viewers in particular 'likely felt the catharsis that other late-night programs have failed to deliver' while watching Bee's monologue.

She argued that the news about Weinstein might have been shocking to many people - but not to most women, who are painfully aware of the issue.

"We women have known men were gross since our sixth-grade gym teacher said 'good job' at the end of class while massaging our shoulders that were somehow on the front of our bodies. It doesn't get any better in adulthood as sexual harassment is rampant in every profession imaginable," she said before listing headlines to illustrate the point.

"We tried to find one place where women were safe so we googled 'sexual harassment Antarctica' and we found [an article about sexual harassment in Antarctica] from five f**king days ago! You can't even go to the most remote part of the planet without some dude swinging his cold, shrivelled dick your way."

Her monologue ended with a request for other victims to approach her with their stories.
