Another powerful Hollywood executive is facing allegations of sexual harassment.
Actress Rose McGowan, who is one of Weinstein's accusers, tweeted at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Thursday saying "I told the head of your studio that HW raped me".
"Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately", an Amazon spokesperson told Variety in a statement.
Isa Hackett, executive producer of Man in the High Castle, based on her father Philip K. Dick's book, said Amazon Studios chief Roy Price asked her to attend an Amazon staff party and repeatedly and insistently propositioned her, according to an interview in The Hollywood Reporter.
It was not immediately clear what film script she was referring to or why she said Amazon won a "dirty Oscar".
Craig Berman, a spokesman for Amazon, didn't respond to repeated requests for comment. "Accordingly, we looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved". "I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change".
Lawler-dos Anjos set for UFC Winnipeg
UFC on Fox 26, which goes down on December 16 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, now has a headliner - and it is absolute dynamite. Still, the night featured two future UFC champions in Woodley and current heavyweight titleholder Stipe Miocic.
Most damning for Amazon is the fact that Hatckett reported the incidents to Amazon. Insiders have speculated for months about Price's possible departure from his role as head of Amazon's original-video arm.
Despite traction gained with critics and awards voters, Amazon is in the process of pivoting away from niche, naturalistic scripted series such as "Transparent and toward broader, larger scale genre series favored by a large swathe of television viewers - and by Bezos".
Hackett's allegations follow multiple complaints of sexual harassment and assault lodged against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
But other ambitious projects have fizzled, with "Z: The Beginning of Everything" and "The Last Tycoon" each canceled after a single season.
