Embattled famous actor and Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein has gotten the boot from the American Guild of Producers, TMZ reported. The star producer who has been fighting wars of several allegations of assault from mainly Hollywood actresses has been under the burner for the past few weeks since a case of assault was opened for him.
Lots of actresses have come forward to testify against him for assaulting them at one time or the other with Weinstein, usually found guilty. He was previously banned from the British Film Academy, BAFTA’s board of directors after years of meritorious service. Most recently, Weinstein splitted from his brother whom they had the movie production company together to set up his own after a series of cases were owned against him.
Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein.
Lupita Nyongo, Angelina Jolie and many more star actresses lead the myriads of people that have testified against Weinstein.
The PGA announced Monday … “In light of Mr. Weinstein’s widely reported behavior .. the Producers Guild’s National Board has voted unanimously to enact a lifetime ban.”
The guild had commenced the process of ending his membership two weeks ago but was willing to give him until Nov.6 to plead his case before a final verdict will be given. The PGA have noticed that Weinstein is not ready to make use of that opportunity and have therefore decided to land him the blow earlier than expected.
Weinstein’s plans to continue movie production, with this recent development has hit a snag as the most important guild to his work have just fired a salvo on him.
