The Weinstein Company fires Harvey Weinstein following bombshell 'New York Times' report

DEC. 2 2014 FILE

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein has been forced out of his company after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced against the indie film impresario last week, the Weinstein Co. said Sunday.

Weinstein is now taking an "indefinite" leave of absence from the Weinstein Company, the board said on Friday.

Meryl Streep has released a statement on Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault allegations.

CNN reports that the producer's own brother, Bob, was among the remaining board members who made a decision to cut ties.

The removal of Mr Weinstein from his company will leave control in his brother, Bob Weinstein's hands, along with chief operating officer David Glasser.

Now, a HuffPost report has come up with a new allegation against the Pulp Fiction producer.

Weinstein has issued an apology for "the way I've behaved with colleagues", but his lawyers have threatened to sue the newspaper, claiming its report was false and defamatory.

Others were more cynical about the "swift action" taken by the company and Lena Dunham slated the Weinstein Company saying they "always always knew" about the accusations.

Three-time Oscar victor Meryl Streep condemned the alleged conduct that spurred scathing sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein as "disgraceful" and "inexcusable" - but insisted she knew nothing about the disgraced mogul's disgusting behavior, according to a statement Monday.

After making the statement, a reporter asked Mr Trump how the scandal was different to the infamous audio released a year ago of him saying he grabbed women by their genitals without consent. Actress Ashley Judd, as well as former employees and associates, all gave testimonies for the Times investigation. That was the culture then. "Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go", he said via the statement. Last week Bloom told the Times that Weinstein denies numerous claims; she later announced that she is no longer advising Weinstein.
