Just days after The New York Times published a huge feature about American film executive Harvey Weinstein reportedly paying off sexual harassment accusers, his company, The Weinstein Company, announced today that he has been terminated.
Weinstein is taking a leave of absence from his own company after The New York Times released a report alleging decades of sexual harassment against women, including employees and actress Ashley Judd.
The Sunday meeting was tense and Weinstein was offered by the board to settle with the company and leave but he refused, THR said citing a source.
Late Sunday night, Weinstein was sacked by his board of directors. An attorney for Weinstein didn't immediately comment.
The Miramax and Weinstein Company co-founder has produced a number of Oscar-winning films, including Shakespeare in Love, The King's Speech and The Artist. The board on Friday endorsed that decision and announced an investigation into the allegations.
Weinstein's alleged inappropriate behavior with women in the last 30 years was detailed in the bombshell report.
Weinstein is one of the most influential producers in Hollywood and has produced hundreds of popular movies over the years. Sunday night after a third of the board resigned and prominentDemocrats began donating Weinstein's financial contributions to charity, the company officially cut Weinstein loose. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes", she toldHuffPost. Harvey Weinstein himself complicated thing greatly with his response to those claims.
Karlsen said Weinstein's behavior was allowed to go on for so long because of a "culture of fear". "I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it".
A statement from the Weinstein Company's directors said that "in light of new information about misconduct" Mr Weinstein was being dismissed with immediate effect.
