Harvey Weinstein banned for life from Television Academy

UPI News Service, 11/07/2017 

The Television Academy permanently expelled Harvey Weinstein after dozens of women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The academy held a vote during a meeting on Monday to ban Weinstein for life and said it supports those speaking out against harassment.

"The unfolding and widespread examples of this horrific behavior are deeply disturbing to the Academy's leadership," the academy said.

"We have been in contact with leaders across the industry and share with them a deep sense of responsibility to provide clear workplace benchmarks reflecting decency and respect."

It also moved to expedite a detailed review and revision of Television Academy membership codes of conduct which began before allegations against Weinstein broke.

"We are determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals from predatory harassment, ensuring they are able to practice their craft in a safe environment," the academy said.

The Television Academy began "disciplinary proceedings" after a vote in late October.

Weinstein produced television shows including "Project Runway" and "Project Greenlight."

He was banned for life from the Producers Guild of America last week and the Directors Guild has also begun action to have him removed.

The Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences and its British counterpart BAFTA also revoked his membership.
