Fiancee Of 'Suspended' Amazon Studios Head Calls Off Wedding

Former Amazon Studios head Roy Price’s terrible, awful no-good week just got even worse...

Earlier in the week, Price was unceremoniously suspended by Amazon this past week for reportedly sexually harassing female colleagues.

Price allegedly lewdly propositioned Isa Hackett, a producer on 'The Man in the High Castle,' back in 2015, promising during a late-night cab ride that she’d “love his dick.” On the evening of July 10, 2015, after a long day of promoting Man in the High Castle at Comic-Con in San Diego, Hackett attended a dinner with the show's cast and Amazon staff at the US Grant Hotel. At the dinner, Price asked Hackett to attend an Amazon staff party later that night at the former W Hotel. She ended up in a taxi with Price and Michael Paull, then another top Amazon executive and now CEO of the digital media company BAMTech.

During the ride, Price repeatedly propositioned her, Hackett said. Though she immediately reported the incident to Amazon, little was done until this week when Price, the executive in charge of Amazon studios, was suspended “indefinitely”.

Hackett is the daughter of the late Philip K. Dick, who wrote the acclaimed novel on which “The Man in the High Castle” is based.

Amazon said in a statement this past week,

“Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Company.”

And now, Price’s fiancée, writer Lila Feinberg, has called off their wedding, which was set to take place in four weeks.

A source close to the couple confirmed the news of the cancellation to Page Six:

“Lila is currently in New York and she has called off the wedding.”

Feinberg was due to wear a Marchesa dress at the nuptials that had been custom-designed by Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, who this week announced she was leaving the movie mogul after more than 30 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of harassment, groping and – in more than a handful of instances – rape.

Price was said to be close friends with Weinstein.

Feinberg was awarded Araca Group’s National Graduate Playwriting Award for her play “Vertebrae,” and is also the creator and executive producer of “12 Parties,” an original series that was acquired by The Weinstein Company.

She has also sold projects to Legendary Television and MTV.

Lucky escape. For him.He should apologize to Hackett and thank her, too!"Lila studied feminist poetry at Columbia University"Vertebrae (play): "The weekend: a medical school reunion. The place: Vermont. The forecast: Hurricane Irene. Hoping to evade the storm, friends find themselves in the eye of their very own. When the premature death of one of their classmates is called into question, each is forced to examine the choices they've made, in the operating room and in the bedrom".O.M.F.G. Run.

I already saw that story when it was called "The Big Hurt".  As a sidenote, feminism isnt a philosophy, it's a semi-transparent scheme to become "a little more equal" than everyone else.  It's fucking bullshit.  Now we have a country full of emasculated panzy "men", wearing "man-buns", who follow the sitcom script by cowering in the corner, whilst bitchy wife verbally assaults him.  Dont forget the smart-assed kid who walks all over him and sasses back constantly.  Such a meme now, in retrospect.  Blame that fucking tool, Ray Romano for that.  That awful, idiotic show was the unveiling of the NWO/mockingbird media's final cultural assault on western masculinity.  Sitcoms are for retards anyways.  Pedo-wood sells us bottom-rung, lowest common denominator swill, like 30 Rock.......if you watched the promos a few years ago for that piece of shit, you'd think it was the cinematic work of the millenium (a show that, in reality, no one watched).

Simple, Hollywood realizes that Ma and Paw Kettle are not buying their crap anymore.  They know that they can promote social justice as much as they want but the bottom line is money.  Since we have had two years of bad returns for their movies.  Just look at the results for the remake of Ghostbusters.  They also realize that all the stuff that they have been doing is making them look bad and hurting their profit margins.

because "anti-semitism" is for no reasons AT ALL. It is all irrational bigotry totally not based on the behavior of jews. /s

And the jews engaging in this behavior are just a small elite minority and there is not empirical evidence to show that it is almost all of them. /s
