Transcript for Harvey Weinstein fired after misconduct allegations
On "Snl," it really was. We move on to that new fallout for Harvey Weinstein. Overnight the movie mogul fired from his job at the company he once founded over explosive sexual harassment allegations and linsey Davis has late developments for us. Hey, linsey. Reporter: Just four days after the bombshell report accusing him of sexually harassing women this morning Harvey Weinstein is out of a job. While the Weinstein company initially said the embattled mogul would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from the company late Sunday the remaining board members including Weinstein's brother Bob announced his termination saying it was due to new information about misconduct that has emerged in the past few days. The ouster comes amid a week of growing fallout from that "The New York Times" report that describes several accusations of sexual harassment against Weinstein from both employees and actresses including Ashley Judd and rose Mcgowan. On Friday, three members of the Weinstein company's all-male nine-member board of directors resigned followed on Saturday by attorney Lisa bloom who tweeted that she'd be stepping down as Weinstein's adviser. This just one day after she appeared on "Good morning America" telling George her client's behavior crossed a legal line. This is textbook sexual harassment. It's gross. Yeah. It's illegal. Yes. Reporter: This as another accuser came forward, a local news reporter who claims Weinstein accosted her in a closed restaurant hallway ten years ago performing an obscene act while blocking her exit. This weekend she tweeted for those asking why I waited, you try telling that story ten years ago. Only possible now because of women with bigger names far braver than me. Even president trump pictured here with Weinstein at a 2009 film premiere weighing in. I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time. I'm not at all surprised to see it. Reporter: But when a reporter attempted to compare Weinstein's behavior with president trump's, the president made this distinction. Did Harvey Weinstein act inappropriate? He says they were inappropriate. A year ago that video that came out -- That's locker room. That's locker room. Reporter: And over the weekend Mcgowan among those who received a settlement tweeted a picture of herself in her 20s with the caption this is the girl who was hurt by a monster. This is the girl who you were shaming with your silence. She wants more women to come forward. All right.
