Amazon Exec Suspended Amid Sexual Harassment Claim

Amazon has suspended top entertainment executive Roy Price.

"Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately", an Amazon spokesperson told Variety in a statement.

As far as reviewing their relationship with The Weinstein Co., Amazon was slated to release at least two major dramas, but as a result of the sexual harassment cases, Amazon is now reviewing their current deal. Another powerful Hollywood executive is facing allegations of sexual harassment.

Under Price, Amazon has been building up the video content available to Amazon Prime members, becoming a stronger competitor to Netflix and Hulu.

David Greenspan increased its stake in Ally Finl Inc (ALLY) by 1.54% based on its latest 2017Q2 regulatory filing with the SEC. FBR Capital maintained Retail Opportunity Investments Corp (NASDAQ:ROIC) on Thursday, March 17 with "Market Perform" rating.

That speculation has driven by concerns over possible sexual harassment and a dramatic shift in Amazon's approach to original programming - one that was mandated by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and which rejects the strategy employed for years by Price.

Isa Hackett, the producer on "Man in the High Castle" recapped Price harassing her, with lewd suggestions that she'd "love his dick". Variety was the first to report Price's suspension. Bloom similarly dropped Weinstein as a client earlier this week as multiple women began to speak out claiming that Weinstein had harassed or raped them.

Hackett reported the incidents to studio executives who brought in investigators to look further into the allegations, The Hollywood Reported added.

"I think women inspire each other", Ms. Hackett said.

In a string of fiery tweets, McGowan said she repeatedly warned the studio about "HW" and "begged" the company not to work with the movie mogul but was told by an unnamed studio executive that "it hadn't been proven". "I said I was the proof".

Meanwhile, Price continued to spearhead other Amazon projects, including two Weinstein Company television shows - The Romanoffs, from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, and an untitled David O. Russell drama starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.

Amazon's comedy series "Transparent" won a Golden Globe Award for best comedy or musical and a best actor Emmy for Jeffrey Tambor.
