Producers Guild of America Bans Harvey Weinstein for Life
Following the avalanche of sexual-harassment, rape and assault accusations made against him, producer Harvey Weinstein has authoritatively been restricted for life from the Producers Guild of America after being accused of sexual misconduct by many ladies, the association reported Monday.
The PGA’s top managerial staff started the procedure of terminating Weinstein’s membership two weeks prior, and the organization’s constitution gave him a chance to react before a last decision would be rendered Nov. 6. Rather than doing as such, he surrendered his participation, the organization said.
“In light of Mr. Weinstein’s generally revealed conduct — with new reports proceeding to surface even now — the Producers Guild’s National Board has voted consistently to sanction a lifetime prohibition on Mr. Weinstein, for all time banishing him from PGA participation,” the association said in an announcement. “This remarkable advance is an impression of the reality with which the Guild respects the various reports of Mr. Weinstein’s times of unforgivable lead. Inappropriate behavior can never again be endured in our industry or inside the positions of Producers Guild participation. As expressed already, the PGA’s Officers and National Board of Directors have made the Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force particularly accused of looking into and proposing substantive and compelling answers for battle inappropriate behavior in media outlets.”
More than 80 women have so far accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault and rape — and the list kept growing this week.
Italian actress/director Asia Argento, who claimed in Ronan Farrow’s explosive New Yorker piece that she was raped by Weinstein, tweeted a list of alleged victims on the weekend.
