“The unfolding and widespread examples of this horrific behavior are deeply disturbing to the Academy’s leadership,” the statement continued. “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. As a result, we are expediting an already-begun detailed review and revision of our Television Academy membership codes of conduct.”

“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 group finished.

The former film executive has already been permanently banned from the Producer’s Guild of America as well.

Harvey Weinstein May Be Arrested by the NYPD Following Rape Accusation

Harvey Weinstein may be facing criminal charges, according to the New York Police Department.

The 65-year-old former film executive is under investigation by the NYPD following actress Paz de la Huerta‘s rape accusations against him.

During a press briefing, the NYPD called her story “credible” and said that they are gathering evidence to issue an arrest warrant for Harvey.

“She put forth a credible and detailed narrative to us. We then sought to garner corroboration — this happened seven years ago — and we found corroboration. We have an actual case here,” Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters.

He added that if Harvey was still in New York and it had been more recent, “”we would go right away and make the arrest.”

The NYPD is continuing to collect evidence in order to obtain the arrest warrant.

Julianna Margulies Recalls Scary Experiences With Harvey Weinstein & Steven Seagal

Julianna Margulies is opening up about some scary experiences she had with Harvey Weinstein and Steven Seagal.

The 51-year-old The Good Wife actress recalled the encounters while making an appearance on SiriusXM Studios.

“When I was 23, a casting director, a woman, said, ‘Steven Seagal wants to go over the scene with you in his hotel room at 10 o’clock at night.’…I got to the hotel at 10:40, and she wasn’t there. And he was. Alone. And he made sure that I saw his gun, which I had never seen a gun in real life. And I got out of there unscathed…I never was raped. And I never was harmed. And I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room…I sorta screamed my way out,” she explained.

Julianna added that she had a close call with Harvey at his hotel room too, saying, “He opened the door, in a bathrobe. I could see that there were candles lit in the room, and there was a dinner for two. And I saw him stare at [my assistant], daggers…And he looked at me, furious…And he slammed the door. And, of course, I didn’t get the part.”

Julianna also said that she’s so glad that everyone is sharing their stories now.

“I think one thing people forget about women, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. When we band together the voice isn’t going to die. We’re not brushing anything under the rug anymore. We’re not shrugging this off,” Julianna said.

Paz de la Huerta Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her Twice in 2010

Paz de la Huerta is the latest actress to come forward and share her story against Harvey Weinstein.

The 33-year-old actress alleges in Vanity Fair that the disgraced movie producer raped her twice in 2010.

Paz says the first instance happened in November of that year after Harvey offered her a ride home to her New York City where he demanded to come in for a drink.

“Things got very uncomfortable very fast,” Paz says before recounting the attack.

“I felt afraid… It wasn’t consensual… It happened very quickly… He stuck himself inside me… When he was done he said he’d be calling me,” Paz said. “I kind of just laid on the bed in shock.”

Paz went on to share that the second attack happened a month later when Harvey allegedly showed up at her apartment drunk.

“I was in no state,” she said. “I was so terrified of him… I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He kept humping me and it was disgusting. He’s like a pig… He raped me.”

The NYPD has opened an investigation in Paz‘s sexual assault complaints against Harvey.

Harvey Weinstein Gets Lifetime Ban From Producer's Guild

Harvey Weinstein has been permanently banned from the Producer’s Guild of America.

The PGA unanimously voted to begin the 65-year-old former film executive’s termination process on October 16.

Harvey then chose to resign from the guild, which the organization announced on Monday (October 30), and is now banned for life from being a member.

“In light of Mr. Weinstein’s widely reported behavior — with new reports continuing to surface even now — the Producers Guild’s National Board has voted unanimously to enact a lifetime ban on Mr. Weinstein, permanently barring him from PGA membership,” the PGA said in a statement. “This unprecedented step is a reflection of the seriousness with which the Guild regards the numerous reports of Mr. Weinstein’s decades of reprehensible conduct.”

“Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of Producers Guild membership,” the statement continued. “As stated previously, the PGA’s Officers and National Board of Directors have created the Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force specifically charged with researching and proposing substantive and effective solutions to combat sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.”

Donna Karan Apologizes Again for Harvey Weinstein Comments About Women 'Asking For It'

Donna Karan is apologizing again for her comments about women “asking for it” with regards to Harvey Weinstein.

“I want to say how sorry I am,” the fashion designer said in an interview with Robin Roberts. “What I said is so wrong and not who I am.”

“I had just … come from a 14-hour plane trip. I walked into a situation that I wasn’t prepared for in any circumstances whatsoever…I had been away for a month and a half. I heard a whisper, but there were whispers all over. … It wasn’t till a day and a half after that I truly heard about it. That’s my honest truth. I didn’t know,” Donna said.

If you missed it, after the Harvey Weinstein allegations were revealed, Donna said, “How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality? It’s not Harvey Weinstein. You look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and, you know, what they’re asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”

Robert Rodriguez Put Rose McGowan in 'Grindhouse' as Revenge Against Harvey Weinstein

Robert Rodriguez is revealing the truth behind his casting of Rose McGowan in his movie, Grindhouse.

The 49-year-old director revealed in a statement published on Variety on Friday (October 27) that he knew about the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations made by the 44-year-old actress, who he dated from 2006 to 2009 – and casting Rose as the “bad ass” in his 2007 film was Robert‘s way of exacting revenge against the film producer.

“I told Rose that she was not blacklisted from MY movies and that Harvey couldn’t tell me who to cast,” he wrote. “I then revealed to Rose right then and there that I was about to start writing a movie with Quentin Tarantino, a double feature throwback to 70’s exploitation movies, and that if she was interested, I would write her a BAD ASS character and make her one of the leads.”

He also spoke out in support of the women who have come forward with their own stories: “Once someone like Harvey Weinstein strikes, the waves, ripple effects, and the collateral damage that takes place are far-reaching, unstoppable, and unending. Once a predator strikes, it’s simply too late. We have to stop these actions from happening to begin with through education, harsher consequences, and zero tolerance.”
