Harvey Weinstein Fired From The Weinstein Company

One day after Harvey Weinstein lost his lead attorney, Lisa Bloom, who quit just two days after she said "I will continue to work with him personally for as long as it takes" (apparently all of 48 hours), moments ago news hit that the scandalous media mogul has been fired from the Hollywood company he created. In a late Sunday statement, the company's directors announced that Weinstein's employment with the Weinstein Company has been terminated, effective immediately as a result of the mushrooming sexual harassment scandal that has hobbled his status as a media mogul and left his future in Hollywood in jeopardy.

According to Variety, The Weinstein Company’s board of directors has voted to remove Weinstein from the studio, leaving control of the company in the hands of Weinstein’s brother, Bob Weinstein, and chief operating officer David Glasser, it was announced in a statement from the company Sunday.

“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days,  the directors of The Weinstein Company — Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar — have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately.”

Weinstein has been rocked by a devastating New York Times report documenting decades of legal settlements stemming from sexual harassment allegations leveled by former employees and associates, as well as accusations of improper sexual advances from actress Ashley Judd. The allegations extend back to Weinstein’s days running Miramax, an independent film studio that was then owned by the Walt Disney Co.

In addition to losing his attorney Bloom, and key advisor, Lanny Davis on Saturday, on Friday one third of the all-male board quit on Friday, including billionaire investors Marc Lasry and Dirk Ziff, and Technicolor executive Tim Sarnoff.

Weinstein was said to be furiously resisting efforts to force him out permanently, according to Variety. He has also struggled with forming a coherent response, veering from contrition to combativeness. An initial statement to the Times acknowledged past mistakes, while pledging to reform himself. Shortly after, Weinstein’s attorney Charles Harder said he was preparing to sue the paper, accusing it of making “false and defamatory statements.” Weinstein also said he was taking a leave of absence, only to continue appearing at work. The board later forced him to take an indefinite leave on Friday.

As Variety previously reported, Bob Weinstein and Glasser have been pushing for Weinstein to leave the company, believing he threatened the studio’s ability to continue to attract top talent and to release film and television shows. Weinstein has maintained that he can weather the crisis and re-emerge.

The good news for Weinstein, is that as some more humorous twitter elements have pointed out, his departure will mean he gets to spend much more time with this lawyers.

He got his cash and ass. What does he care. He's still a hero to the leftists.

Yeah and the allegations "hobbled his career"?

tmosley's picture

Looking forward to more and more of these (((people))) and their pets who think they are above the law or morality get their sleazy asses hauled into the light.

Then perhaps to the gallows.

Surprise Harvey did not resort to (((the oldest trick))) in the book. http://wp.me/p4OZ4v-1Ow

poor baby, everybody hates him because he's a FAKE Hebrew.

Adullam's picture

You should know @sincerley_yours / loebster (and all your other ID's.) It does take a FAKE to know a FAKE, doesn't it? I tell you ... there's help for people who talk to themselves like they are separate personalities. I encourage you to look into it before it becomes a serious thing with you and your fake bliblicism institute.

Weinstein isn't what he is because of his ethnicity. He is what he is because of his complete lack of moral compass. That is a state that knows no ethnic limitations, though it may definitely be found more in some than others.

They must have touched a raw nerve on you to be so pissed. Weinstein sympathizer or coreligionist?

I'll go with coreligionist.

stizazz's picture

Given his paranoia, I tend to agree with you. Definitely coreligionist. They're very sensitive about their fake hebrewness.

Looks like Harvey is going to be blowing himself from now on too.

What?  Harvey fired for just doing what Dims do?  They never fired Bill Clintion for that shit.

Yea, but his house plants are going to be pissed ... and starving.

I think it's time to fire them all at once, maybe then Holywood will stop being a pervert sewer that it is.

Think about all those silent 'stars' that had to suck his greasy dick to get into Tinsel town.
Ruled by fags, perverts and pedophiles.
Shine the light on the darkness.

Naw, just look at that face-  JLaw couldn't get enough of that action........

<<Think about all those silent 'stars' that had to suck his greasy dick to get into Tinsel town.>>


You mean like George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Jimmy "The Turd" Fallon, and so on?

Anderson Cooper too?

Anderson Pooper did it willingly

MrBoompi's picture

Yes look at that face.  Who wouldn't fuck him? 

Beowulf55's picture

So what you are saying is "those silent Stars" sold their soul for fame and fortune and all they had to do was suck his greasy dick.  Seems to me they sold their souls cheap and are not deserving of a soul or fame or fortune.

Got a list of names that I can boycott?

DICK Blumenthal, another scummy pedo like scum sucking pig.

They all slither together.  Nasty.

cheeseheader's picture

Yep, and what are we waiting for...I'm wondering who in proximity will have additional 'advice' for Mr. W as to a future successful career remaining here in merica.


Have advice, will travel....

You won't have an entertainment industry at all when you are done.

Bigly's picture

I'll say it because you all think it.

The only way someone female would get within 50 ft. of the odious toad-like, acne scarred, morbidly obese, arrogant criminal, is if she is both morally compromised AND highly compensated for being there.

darkstar7646's picture

Welcome to the entire American entertainment industry -- where you do not get fame by any other means whatsoever.

(((Weinstien))) in a shocking development  (((they))) are perverts who extort the goyim. Never would have thought it

CriticalUser's picture

He is an american equivalent of Johnny Saville. Sorry to break it to you, but Saville was not a Jew.
Like Bill Cosby or Trump aren't to give you American examples.

Positions of power corrupts some, it's as simple as that.

The company is protecting its colluding ass from lawsuits connected with Hollywoods STD central.

Did Harvey get a golden showe, errr parachute? ;-)

Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob were good friends with Jeffrey Epstein of Pedophile Island infamy.


Bob Weinstein (page 57) is listed in Epstein's little black book. So are many other notables including John Kerry

The whole story must be pretty bad the way they are running away form his faster then a speeding Rabbi.

There was once a Land where (((Weinstein))) and (((Epstein))) exploiters of our women and children would have been dragged into the street like garbage by a warrior class with spiffy black uniforms by Hugo Boss.  A Land where women, instead of being exploited, were exalted for their most Holy duty - Motherhood.  A Land where women and children could walk the streets at night in complete safety.  A Land with a Leader that kept public corruption at a small percentage of what it is today.  When we read articles such as this, perhaps it is OK to dream that we may one day again have such a Land.

...you should preclude your comment with what happened before this LAND was in such shape as you first describe...it took many years and rivers of blood... whenever your are ready.... gird your loins, lick your wounds, oil your guns and prepare to die...

junction's picture

Weinstein dissed Ashley Judd.  For that, he deserves whatever he gets.  Hollywood always had their low life "casting couch" scum targeting young actresses.  Times have changed, Harvey, you are FIRED!

A filthy horrible excuse of a man

 You confirmed 500 + years of negative jewish stereotypes

For all your money you are lower than pig shit

Please kill yourself

This is what winning looks like:

-CNN on the ropes 

-NFL exposed as staffed by Anti American Negros 

-Hollywood shown for being a playground for (((Perverts)))

Did I mention Weiner is in the slammer?

Freddie's picture

All of Hollywood is like this.  When will they start exposing the pedos that Corey Haim and Corey Feldman talked about?  There were a few other child actors who also vaguely mentioned it.   Illuminati

Bigly's picture

Yes. The pedogate needs to bust open. A small few of them are being perp walked and is the msm reporting on any of it?  Crickets.

Just so you understand the word ACCOMPLICE. The msm is just that. These 'news' agencies need shut down. But since everything is so distorted, it will be up to you all to boycott and starve these beasts.

nmewn's picture

Yeah, he didn't do the jooo's any favors by being a fat, rich, predatory asshole thats for sure. 

Of course, Schumer, Blumenthal etal didn't help by only giving back last cycles contributions either.

Jus sayin ;-)

Col. Leghorn CSA's picture

He looks like all those charicatures of Jews from The Poison Mushroom all those years ago

darkstar7646's picture

He almost certainly will, and soon.

There's a treasure trove of dirty little secrets -- and if Pandora's Box is ever completely opened, your TV goes black, probably permanently.

Paul Kersey's picture

Perhaps Weinstein can fall back on his old male model job. He's still got his rugged good looks.
