“It is a stunning fall from power for the mogul, whose tenacity and ruthlessness put him at the nexus of Hollywood, Wall Street, and the Beltway. Not just a movie producer, Weinstein was also a political player and major force in New York City and Hollywood’s cultural and corporate life.” A couple days after announcing he’d take a leave of absence from the firm he founded, Harvey Weinstein was forced out of his own company by a board a directors that includes his brother.

+ The board made its decision based on Weinstein’s attempted apology and the series of stories they were hearing, including this one: TV Journalist Says Harvey Weinstein Masturbated In Front Of Her.

+ Meryl Streep once jokingly referred to Weinstein as god. After reading the reports of his behavior, she’s officially losing her religion. “The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported. The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes.” (Sad Irony: 2017 is the year we finally woke up to sexual harassment and the year we have an unapologetic perpetrator as president.)
