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.

Weinstein is one of the most influential producers in Hollywood and has produced hundreds of popular movies over the years.

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.
