"Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately", an Amazon spokesperson confirmed to KIRO.
Amazon Studio chief Roy Price was put on an immediate leave of absence Thursday, the company said, following allegations that he harassed a producer and ignored an actress's claim of a sexual assault by producer Harvey Weinstein.
The claims compound the problems for Amazon Studios, which has won critical acclaim for some productions but has struggled to make TV shows that capture the popular imagination like Netflix's "House of Cards" and "Stranger Things". He invited her to an Amazon party afterward, and she shared a taxi to the party with Price and another Amazon exec.
The Amazon Studios president's departure comes in the face of renewed sexual harassment allegations and multiple signs that Amazon and others in the industry had withdrawn their support from the embattled executive. "'You will love my dick, ' he said, according to Hackett, who relayed her account to multiple individuals in the hours after the alleged episode". During the party, he stepped close and yelled "anal sex" into her ear, she says.
She reported the incident to Amazon management, which hired an outside consultant to investigate. Price, through a representative, declined comment.
Masters wrote about the alleged harassment over the summer for another outlet, The Information, but did not report Hackett's name. As more victims of Weinstein's have come out, so have accusations of sexual harassment against many other Hollywood big shots.
"Having power and influence is such a huge responsibility", she told the Reporter.
In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter about Hackett's allegations, the company said, "We take seriously any questions about the conduct of our employees". She is also executive producer of an upcoming Amazon anthology series adapted from his writings, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams.
