Oscars expels Harvey Weinstein from its board following sexual harassment scandal

59e30bc07ad7bIn the latest and perhaps most symbolic blow to Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein since a host of sexual harassment and assault allegations went public nine days ago, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board voted on Saturday to strip Weinstein’s membership.

 

In a statement, the academy said the action, which is effective immediately, was intended “not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”
