Harvey Weinstein Fired from The Weinstein Company Amid Sexual Harassment Accusations

Harvey Weinstein Fired from The Weinstein Company Amid Sexual Harassment Accusations

Harvey Weinstein co-founded the company but has recently been let go in the wake of the sex claims.

Harvey Weinstein is now out of a job at The Weinstein Company.

Actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan were among the women named as victims of Weinstein's abuse.

Part of the challenge for women is the fear of career repercussions for speaking out.

Ms Sivan, then working at NY cable channel Long Island 12, alleged Mr Weinstein cornered her in the hallway of a Manhattan restaurant which was closed to the public, and masturbated in front of her. To anyone. I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person, and my interactions with the people I work with have changed.

Jones also admitted that, while she doesn't have a knack for dance, she's happy to support the cause. He is famous for his uncanny ability to orchestrate successful Oscar campaigns.

What are the allegations against him?

The allegations triggered cascading chaos at the Weinstein Co.

CNN reports that the producer's own brother, Bob, was among the remaining board members who chose to cut ties.

The high-profile director, Rob Reiner ("When Harry Met Sally", "The Bucket List") expressed himself more forcefully: "It's not just our community-this is happening in every workplace in America".

'You constantly question yourself - am I the one who is the problem?'

According to Dominic Patten of Deadline Hollywood, who live-blogged the conversation, "there was plenty of gooey-gushing by Weinstein".

"It's gross, yeah", Bloom replied. "I can't thank you enough for doing this". How aware were the other company executives of HW behaviour?

He formed the Miramax production house in the late 1970s with his brother and then sold it to Disney.

The Weinstein Co. board of directors announced Sunday that Weinstein had been terminated, effective immediately.

"Emma called Harvey out for being a misogynist and a bully and really gave him a hard time", the source said.

Following the news of Mr. Weinstein's firing Sunday, this person said the story had only grown bigger, and that it was still possible for "Saturday Night Live" to address the topic in a new episode this coming Saturday.

Weinstein's departure ends something of an era for independent film.

Writer and artist Liza Campbell has added her story to the growing number of accounts of women who claim they were sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein. "I so respect all women and regret what happened".

Weinstein, who grew up in Flushing, Queens, is among the most powerful men in Hollywood. "Obviously it is intolerable".
