"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company -- Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar -- have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately," the company said in a statement, reported Variety.

Weinstein has been accused by several women of sexual harassment over the past 27 years, according to a report published last week by the New York Times.

He then took a leave of absence from the company and apologized for his past behavior.

"I so respect all women and regret what happened. I hope that my actions will speak louder than words," he said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.
