Amazon Studios boss Roy Price placed on leave after sexual harassment allegations

In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, Hackett has now gone on the record with The Hollywood Reporter to reveal that Price allegedly made inappropriate remarks to her during San Diego Comic-Con.

Multiple representatives for Amazon did not respond to requests for comment Thursday evening.

Amazon released a mealy-mouthed statement that read in part, "W$3 e looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved". Price, through a spokesperson, declined comment. "I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change".

While Weinstein was sacked from his company Weinstein Co., Amazon has two series being produced by the company, however their future is not known.

He told Sean Hannity , "Now, if you look at the stock market , that's one element, but then we have many other elements. In terms of stock market gains, Trump is accurate about the increase, although the exact figure could be up for debate.

Amid the Weinstein sexual harassment cases first reported by the New York Times, the question was asked whether or not this was just the tip of the iceberg. Hackett says she was never told the outcome of that inquiry, but notes that she hasn't seen Price at any events involving her shows.

Amazon will spend about $4 billion this year on video programming, including its own TV shows and movies, according to estimates by Wedbush Securities. Amazon tells investors the big investment in video pays off by enticing more people to join Prime, making them more loyal shoppers.

The allegations came just as actress Rose McGowan lashed out at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a Tweetstorm claiming the studio ignored her claims that Harvey Weinstein raped her.

But other ambitious projects have fizzled, with "Z: The Beginning of Everything" and "The Last Tycoon" each canceled after a single season. (The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Hackett told at least two people about the alleged incident in the immediate aftermath.) Hackett says she made clear to Price she was not interested and told him that she is lesbian with a wife and children. "We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co".
