Harvey Weinstein Fired From His Own Company

Harvey Weinstein has been fired from 'The Weinstein Company' amid allegations of chronic sexual misconduct and harassment.

The Board of Directors for the company have released a statement.

"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company...have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein company is terminated, effective immediately."

The firing comes after an article in the New York Times reported that Weinstein had sexually harassed various women over several decades, including Ashley Judd and Rose Mcgowen.

Weinstein's lawyers have since criticised these articles.

Harvey Weinstein is a well known American film producer and film studio executive and his company TWC produced films like Silver Linings Playbook.
