Harvey Weinstein banned for life coming from TV Academy

Similarities in Weinstein accusers' stories

Harvey Weinstein has been banned for life coming from yet another Hollywood organization.

The board for the Television Academy — an organization with more than 22,000 voting members coming from across the TV industry as well as also helps award the Emmys — on Monday voted to permanently expel the movie as well as also TV mogul coming from the organization, following a string of sexual harassment as well as also assault allegations that will have come to light within the last month after explosive stories within the brand new York Times as well as also the brand new Yorker.

“After a hearing today, the Television Academy’s governance has voted to expel Harvey Weinstein coming from the Academy for life,” the organization said in a statement. “The Academy supports those speaking out against harassment in all forms as well as also stands behind those who have been affected by This particular issue.”

To date, more than 60 women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault or harassment.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein has repeatedly denied allegations “of non-consensual sex.” Weinstein has also apologized for “the way I’ve behaved with colleagues within the past.”

Weinstein-produced television shows, like “Project Runway” as well as also “Project Greenlight,” have earned 17 Emmy nominations.

Just last week, the Producers Guild of America voted in favor of banning Weinstein for life.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts as well as also Sciences as well as also its British academy counterpart, BAFTA, have also distanced themselves coming from Weinstein.

The Television Academy began what that will called “disciplinary proceedings” against Weinstein late last month.

Since the allegations against Weinstein first surfaced, the entertainment industry has been rocked by a string of similar accusations brought against various other prominent figures in Hollywood.

“The unfolding as well as also widespread examples of This particular horrific behavior are deeply disturbing to the Academy’s leadership,” the Television Academy added in its statement. “We are determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals coming from predatory harassment, ensuring they are able to practice their craft in a safe environment.”
