Harvey Weinstein has been fired from his own company, amid allegations of chronic sexual misconduct.
The Board of Directors of The Weinstein Company just issued a statement: “In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company … have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately.”
The firing is breathtaking and breathtakingly fast, after a New York Times article reporting that Weinstein has sexually harassed numerous women, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan.
What’s interesting … it would seem highly, highly improbable the Board of Directors didn’t hear rumblings about this … it was a poorly kept secret for decades. But hey … bad press is bad press.
