Harvey Weinstein Ousted at TWC


The Weinstein Company (TWC) fired co-founder Harvey Weinstein over the weekend following a host of 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 company said in a statement.

Last week, The New York Times published an explosive report about harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, maintaining that he had reached at least eight settlements with women over the years. Wire reports indicate that the company may change its name.
