Spaceman Spiff Posted October 9, 2017 Share Posted October 9, 2017 (edited) Add one more to the list of guys you thought were good but turned out to be creeps: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/08/business/harvey-weinstein-fired.html Quote The Weinstein Company fired one of its founders, Harvey Weinstein, on Sunday, after a New York Times investigation uncovered allegations that he had engaged in rampant sexual harassment, dealing a stunning blow to a producer known for shaping American film and championing liberal causes. It was an escalation from Friday, when one-third of the company’s all-male board resigned and four members who remained announced that Mr. Weinstein would take a leave of absence while an outside lawyer investigated the allegations. In an interview Sunday, Lance Maerov, one of the four board members, said it had been brought to their attention that Mr. Weinstein had violated the company’s code of conduct at some point in the past week, but he would not specify what the violation was. The statement announcing the firing said the decision had been made “in light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days.” Edited October 9, 2017 by Spaceman Spiff Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
