Harare, Zimbabwe(News of the South)-Harvey Weinstein has resigned from the Producers Guild of America, the PGA announced Monday, and is now banned for life from being a member of the organization.

 

The guild had voted on Oct 16 to begin the process of expelling the disgraced mogul, but his expulsion was not immediately effective since the guild, according to its bylaws, was required to go through a termination process.

 

According to its rules, it is required that a member be given 15 days’ notice before disciplinary action is taken. But the PGA received notice that rather than face the guild’s charges, Weinstein elected to resign his membership.

 

The guild released a statement, saying, “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.

 

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.

 

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.”

 

Just four years ago, Weinstein and his brother Bob were feted by the PGA at its 2013 awards ceremony, where they were presented with the Milestone Award, the guild’s highest honor, “recognizing an individual or team who has made historic contributions to the entertainment industry.”

 

Weinstein, who has become a Hollywood pariah since multiple allegations of sexual harassment, abuse and even rape have been lodged against him, has also been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and suspended by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. He also has been terminated  from his namesake production company, The Weinstein Co.

 

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct, including harassment and assault, by over 50 women, with uncidents dating back to the 1970’s.-HollywoodReporter
