Disgraced Hollywood movie titan Harvey Weinstein has been kicked out of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
The Academy, the organization that’s home to the Oscars, revoked Weinstein’s membership Saturday following revelations of sexual misconduct going back many years.
Weinstein was also fired from the company he co-founded.
The Academy issued a statement saying its decision sends a messge that sexually predatory behaviour in the film industry is over.
Weinstein’s name was often mentioned when Oscar winners thanked him for casting them in his films.
Weinstein has denied the accusations.
