Harvey Weinstein Kicked Out of The Academy

Harvey Weinstein was voted out of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, it was announced on Saturday.

In announcing the move to expel Weinstein, the Academy said it voted “well in excess of the required two-thirds majority” needed to make the move.

They went on to say, “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 willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

The Academy also said it would “work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all academy members will be expected to exemplify.”
