Just days after The New York Times published a huge feature about American film executive Harvey Weinstein reportedly paying off sexual harassment accusers, his company, The Weinstein Company, announced today that he has been terminated.
Claims were reported in The New York Times at the weekend, alleging Weinstein had sexually harassed his female employees over almost thirty years, reportedly reaching private settlements with eight of the women. At the time, the company said Weinstein was taking an indefinite leave of absence but stopped short of calling for his ouster as some had demanded.
The company's board endorsed Weinstein's leave on Friday, but went further on Sunday night, sacking the 65-year-old from the firm.

"How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?". Ms Bloom resigned, and so did his advisor Lanny Davis, a former White House hand to Bill Clinton.
The company will now conduct an internal investigation into Weinstein's behaviour. That was the culture then.
Weinstein told the Times that he was seeing therapists and "trying to do better".
