Oscar Winning Producer Harvey Expelled from Lifetime Membership

Los Angeles(October 15, 2017): Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by the board of governors after allegations he sexually harassed or assaulted a number of women over the past three decades.

In a brief statement, the organisation behind the Oscars said its board voted “well in excess of the required two-thirds majority” to revoke Weinstein’s membership during an emergency meeting.

“We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues, but also to send a message that the era of wilful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behaviour and workplace harassment in our industry is over,” the academy said.
