Another holier-than-thou Democrat hypocrite is being revealed for the pig that he is in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex crime investigations avalanche and PR Armageddon. This, we can imagine and for many of us enjoy the hope, is just the beginning.
Amazon Studios has now suspended executive producer Roy Price after the American public became aware of accusations of sexual harassment against a television producer. A representative for Amazon said in a Thursday night statement, “Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately.”
Amazon has had a relationship that included the development of two television series which would be co-produced with Weinstein Co. The Weinstein company had also earlier this year purchased a script written by Price’s fiancée, Lila Feinberg. It cannot be argued that there is no relationship between Price, Amazon and Weinstein.
The suspension came just a few hours after actress Rose McGowan sent out a flurry of early morning tweets on Friday that included a statement directed to Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, saying, “I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.”
Another of the five tweets said, “@jeffbezos I am calling on you to stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers. I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood”
Roy Price has been publicly accused of harassing television producer Isa Hackett an alleged occurrence that was reported to the company in the form of a complaint and to various individuals shortly after it happened in July of 2015.
Hackett, who is a lesbian, has a “wife,” and likely wouldn’t be interested in Price under the best of circumstances,detailed the incident that took place as they shared a cab en route to an Amazon party. Hackett claims that once they were in the cab, Price repeatedly and persistently propositioned her.
He allegedly told her, “You will love my d**k.” Hackett says she made clear to Price she was not interested and told him that she is lesbian with a wife and children. The Hollywood Reporter verified that she had reported the incident to multiple individuals in the hours immediately following its alleged occurrence.
For some reason Price refused to accept being told no. Once they had arrived at the Amazon party and as she was talking with other executives, she says Price stepped close to her and loudly said in her ear, “Anal sex!” These sound like the words and actions of a drunk, one who should have, at a minimum, apologized the following day and gotten things worked out.
She apparently attempted to do exactly that, reporting the incidents to Amazon with the company stating that they conducted an investigation, which apparently went no further than possibly asking Price what happened and warning him to be more discreet and perhaps to choose heterosexual women to lessen the chances of both rejection and legal or employment complications.
That conclusion is supported by a statement Amazon released, meaningless boilerplate blather saying, in part, [W]e looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved.”
Now they’re looking at it again, with a lot of other sets of eyes across the world joining them. Maybe the Washington Post will feel compelled to give up some of their Trump bashing space on the front page to carry this story. When Democrat pigs like Weinstein fly.
