In a thorough investigative report, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey of The New York Times detailed the accounts of several women who call out instances of sexual harassment from Weinstein.

Meanwhile, multiple media outlets say three Weinstein Company board members have resigned their positions since the story broke: Dirk Ziff, a billionaire publishing heir and investor; Technicolor executive Tim Sarnoff; and Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry.

At the meeting in which this was put into place, Weinstein was allegedly offered a settlement, which he turned down.

Streep became one of the biggest Hollywood stars to condemn Weinstein Monday, calling the sexual harassment allegations against him "disgraceful".

"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company. have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately", the company board said in a statement Sunday night.

She called his accusers "heroes" for having the courage to come forward. "I'm working with a guy who has behaved badly over the years, who is genuinely remorseful, who says, you know, 'I have caused a lot of pain'". I didn't know about these other offences.

"The behaviour is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar". "Each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game".

"Enough is enough with this guy, '" Sivan said of Weinstein.

Mier was forced to make another save a couple of minutes later when he kept out Mohammed Aminu's shot at his near post. The Black Starlets could not reproduce the kind of performance that saw them beating Columbia in their first game.

She said the incident happened a decade ago, when she met Weinstein at a Manhattan restaurant and then rode with him to Socialista, a Cuban-themed club and restaurant that counted Weinstein as an investor.

"I'm angry, not just at him and the conspiracy of silence around his actions, but also that the "casting couch" phenomenon, so to speak, is still a reality in our business and in the world: the frightful pressure, the terrible expectation put on a woman when a powerful, egotistical, entitled bully expects sexual favors in exchange for a job", she added.

Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" did make a brief joke about Weinstein last Thursday, while John Oliver tackled the subject on HBO's "Last Week Tonight" Sunday night.

"The changes must be both institutional and personal. The men of Hollywood need to know they own no woman". No one should be coerced into trading personal dignity for professional success.

Weinstein's firing from the company he co-founded is likely the final cut on his Hollywood career.

Ex-Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan is the first to give a TV interview about her experience with the Oscar-winning producer on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today. "I didn't know what going public would do for me".

Actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan have said Weinstein sexually harassed them and movie director Judd Apatow and producer Megan Ellison are among those have spoken out in support of them.
