Kevin Smith, the filmmaker perhaps best known for his mid-1990s cult classics “Clerks,” “Mallrats” and “Chasing Amy,” has said he will donate the residual checks from his Harvey Weinstein-produced projects to Women in Film, an organization that “advocates for and advances the careers of women working in the screen industries.”

“My entire career is tied up with the man. It’s been a weird [expletive] week. I just wanted to make some [expletive] movies, that’s it,” Mr. Smith said on a recent podcast, Deadline Hollywood reported Wednesday.

While Mr. Weinstein was not affiliated with the aforementioned trio of comedies, he did executive-produce the 2000-2001 “Clerks” TV series, the 2001 “Clerks” spinoff movie “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” and 2006’s “Clerks II,” according to his profile online at the Internet Movie Database.

“No [expletive] movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, [expletive] it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really [expletive] horrible,” Mr. Smith said, according to Deadline. “I know it’s not my fault, but I didn’t [expletive] help. I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend, like he was my father and [expletive] like that.”
