Don't know if this is true in all cases, but part of the immediate response in both Weinstein and Spacey's cases is that it seems that many people already knew about it but no one wanted to be the first one to say something.

These aren't cases of everyone believing that the emperor has no clothes simply because one child said he didn't, but of everyone finally acknowledging the fact once someone had the courage to publicly state it.

ETA: Or, more cynically, everyone ignoring the issue because they could make money from doing so, and then jumping on the condemnation bandwagon once it became too publicized to safely ignore.
