Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Harvey Weinstein.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has voted to expel the disgraced film executive from its ranks, effective immediately after being announced on Saturday afternoon.
The Oscar winner has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women across his career, and now the Academy’s 54-member board of governors has taken aim at him with a VERY pointed statement stripping all membership and industry ties from him.
Weinstein is now VERY firmly on the outs with Hollywood; he’s also presently facing a possible expulsion from the Producer’s Guild of America, ho will vote Monday on whether to keep Weinstein around.
Earlier this week, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts suspended Weinstein from membership.
