Harvey Weinstein Fired From Company Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

Film producer Harvey Weinstein was fired from his own company on Sunday amid sexual harassment allegations.

"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 Weinstein Company said in a statement on Sunday.

Harvey Weinstein had taken a leave of absence from his film studio after The New York Times detailed decades of sexual harassment allegations and eight settlements against him.

In the article, actress Ashley Judd went on record about an encounter she had with Weinstein, when she arrived at his hotel for a meeting but was instead was greeted by the studio head in a bathrobe. And he repeatedly asked her if she wanted to watch him shower.

Amber Tamblyn and Brie Larson also spoke out about what America Ferrera called an "abuse of power."
