HOLLYWOOD – American filmmaker, who has been accused by dozens of women for rape and sexual assaults has been banned by the Producers Guild of America.
The PGA’s board of directors began the process of terminating Weinstein’s membership two weeks ago, and the guild’s constitution gave him an opportunity to respond before a final verdict would be rendered November, 6, 2017, U.S Today has reported.
We gathered that the filmmaker failed to defend himself but rather opted to resign his membership, from the guild said.
“In light of Mr. Weinstein’s widely reported behavior — with new reports continuing to surface even now — the Producers Guild’s National Board has voted unanimously to enact a lifetime ban on Mr. Weinstein, permanently barring him from PGA membership.
The board explained that the ban is a reflection of the seriousness with which the Guild regards the numerous reports of Mr. Weinstein’s decades of reprehensible conduct.
“Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of Producers Guild membership, the board said.
