Harvey Weinstein Officially Resigns From Weinstein Co. Board

Two weeks after he was unceremoniously fired from the board of the film studio he co-founded, disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has officially announced his "resignation" from the Weinstein Co. Board of Directors, Variety reported, presumably ending his quest to be reinstated as head of the company.

Weinstein made the resignation official at the company’s Tuesday board meeting, where it was rumored he would press the board to rescind his firing, likely instigating a clash with his brother Bob, with whom he co-founded the production company.

Weinstein is in rehab in Arizona, but he was expected to call in to the meeting and threatened to sue the company he founded with his brother in 2005. Harvey owns 22% of the company’s stock, according to Variety.

The board had already fired Weinstein on Oct. 8, just days after the New York Times published the first of a series of stories exposing the producer’s 30-year history of harassing and assaulting women. In its original story, the Times confirmed that Weinstein had reached settlements with eight victims that included non-disclosure agreements.

More than 30 women have accused Weinstein of harassment, groping and assault. The list includes famous actresses including Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

After the New Yorker reported that the New York Police Department had been planning to arrest Weinstein before Manhattan Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. quashed the investigation, the NYPD and Scotland Yard both announced that they had opened investigations into Weinstein. The FBI is also reportedly pursuing a federal case.  

As Variety notes, the Weinstein Co. board has faced uncomfortable questions about how much it knew, with top company figures like Bob Weinstein and president David Glasser saying they knew that Harvey Weinstein could be angry and abusive, and knew that he cheated on his wife, but did not know of his alleged sexual abuses.

After initially denying that it was pursuing a sale, WSJ reported yesterday that Thomas Barrick’s Colony Capital had extended an emergency loan to Weinstein, and was also in talks to buy the film studio.

If you're in "rehab" they don't let you use a phone.
So maybe it's not really "rehab"?

Once your part of the parasitic elites you will never go to jail and you can retire with a golden parachute. In retirement you still can abuse children on a private island with your buddies.

Whinestein & Co. probably threatened to take out a 'HIT' on Harvey if he refused to resign...
Isn't that how it works nowadays in Hollywood?

The Weinstein COMPANY. One of the biggest business in American entertainment. The start of what may be many dominos falling to affect a significant sector of the economy. You don't think the Circuses part of the Bread and Circuses economy is big money?

HW is working on a "tell all" and trying to avoid a court ordered HIV test.

rehab for what? Being an asshole? How does one cure that? Can't he reach his dick with his hands?

Or is he just a psychopath, with a need of a hero dose of ayahuasca?

 

vaporland's picture

through yoga and mindfulness, he will be able to reach it with his mouth...

Exactly.  "Rehab" for HW -- LOL.  There's a special institution for that -- it's called prison.

OT:  Two neutron stars collide -- gold produced.

Absolute must read...

Could Malia Obama Get Caught Up In The Harvey Weinstein Scandal?

https://blackamericaweb.com/2017/10/17/could-malia-obama-get-caught-up-i...

Uh oh. Things could get messy for Malia Obama (and the Obamas) if she is ensnared in a lawsuit aimed at locking down the former first daughter so she can be questioned about Harvey Weinstein during her time at the company.

Don’t be surprised to learn that Malia will be subpoenaed for a deposition in a class action lawsuit against Weinstein and The Weinstein Company to find out if she saw or heard anything regarding Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults during her internship at the production company.

Attorneys want to “talk to Malia ahead of future depositions” so they can base their strategy on the information that she provides...

Here’s the bottom line to the class action lawsuit. It alleges that Harvey Weinstein and TWC were involved in a conspiracy, with the company settling and covering up his alleged crimes.

The allegations aim at setting the stage for RICO consideration, and the possibility that authorities could look into the situation further and pursue criminal charges.

Is knowing the same as being complicit?

nmewn's picture

No.

Not unless they helped facilitate it, like Robert DeNiro  ;-)

hannah's picture

knowing is just as bad. the women that are stating he did them 15 years ago are being attacked for not calling him out then. the tough strong women right...hahaha. the liberals are eating each other.

Honest Sam's picture

No it's not.

And they aren't liberals so stop repeating that lie.

Tolerating evil leads only to more evil.

Knowing about corruption, and turning a blind eye while being in the police force - what does that make you? Not innocent, that's for sure.

Honest Sam's picture

Nor does it make you guilty, also for sure.

Honest Sam's picture

No.  There is no obligation on the part of someone who knows I committed a murder to tell the detectives on Law and Order.  

But that isn't what is at stake here. One is a legal hickey, Aiding and abetting as an accomplice, who does bear a goodly part of the blame, and the other is a left wing propaganda campaign to throw out a sitting POTUS based on the fact that their candidate lost and so did they.
