Television Academy, Organization behind the Emmys, Expels Harvey Weinstein

LOS ANGELES – The Television Academy expelled Harvey Weinstein on Monday for life following dozens of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse made in recent weeks against the producer.

In a statement, the organization said it was disturbed by the “unfolding and widespread examples of (Weinstein’s) horrific behavior” and expressed support to “those speaking out against harassment in all forms.”

The Television Academy, which hands out the Emmy Awards, also said it was “determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals from predatory harassment.”

The Television Academy’s decision to expel Weinstein follows the decision in mid-October by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which organizes the Oscars, to expel him.

The Producers Guild of America had also begun the process of expelling Weinstein, but the producer decided preempt the final decision and resigned from the organization.

The allegations against Weinstein have encouraged several people in the entertainment industry to report different cases of sexual harassment and abuse by actors Kevin Spacey and Dustin Hoffman, former Amazon Studios head Roy Price, and directors Brett Ratner and James Toback.
