Hollywood Film Producer Weinstein Fired over Sexual Harassment Allegations

WASHINGTON – Harvey Weinstein, one of Hollywood’s best-known and most powerful filmmakers, was fired on Sunday from the independent film company he co-founded over allegations of sexual harassment spanning decades.

The Weinstein Company’s board of directors decided to remove the producer from his position, handing over control of the film studio to his brother, Bob Weinstein, and chief operating officer David Glasser, according to a statement released on Sunday.

“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of the Weinstein Company – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar – have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with the Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,” the statement read.

A New York Times report published last week revealed that the producer reached multiple out-of-court settlements over sexual harassment allegations by former employees and associates.

The company had announced after the scandal broke on Thursday that he would be taking an “indefinite leave of absence” pending an internal investigation.

The allegations date back to the 1990s, when Weinstein was head of the production company Miramax, an independent film studio owned by Walt Disney Co.
