Amazon Studios head Roy Price has resigned amid a sexual harassment claim from an employee

Roy Price, who until recently was head of Amazon Studios, quit his very good job on Tuesday a mere five days after more detailed allegations that he'd sexually harassed a co-worker were publicized, according to an Amazon spokesperson who spoke about the matter to CNN.

The 50-year-old says she immediately reported the incident to Amazon executives and an investigation was launched.

"As somebody with some power, I feel it is imperative for me to speak out", she said.

Spectacular Giroud goal gives Arsenal win at Crvena Zvezda
Nemanja Radonjic was found at the back post and his volley was well saved by Petr Cech before Reiss Nelson blocked the rebound. And former United star Keane believes Arsenal are struggling to keep up with their Premier League rivals.

While mulling over whether or not his company should green light the show, Price reportedly asked a group of Amazon staffers if the stars would "show their t-s" - and also explained aloud why he'd pick up the show even if they didn't bare all.

She made it clear to him she was not interested and she was a lesbian with a wife and children. Following the recent sexual harassment allegation against Price, there is a consensus that, as Amazon officially moves to finding a replacement for Price, the new head of Amazon Studios would likely be a woman, with Powell again speculated about. "Accordingly, we looked closely at this specific concern and addressed it directly with those involved".

Soon after Hackett's interview with THR published, Amazon announced that the executive was on a leave of absence.

Google 'discovers Russia-linked ads' on YouTube and Gmail before USA election
As the article notes, the company has previously downplayed its involvement in Russia's potential election interference. Facebook reportedly unearthed $100,000 (£76,000) in spending from a single Russian group, the Internet Research Agency.

Hackett had been reluctant to discuss the incident publicly but chose to do so after other women came forward with accusations of sexual harassment, assault, and rape by film mogul Harvey Weinstein. Still, Hackett continued to make unwanted comments towards her at the party. "Amazon won a dirty Oscar", she tweeted.

Price has deep familial ties to Hollywood: His father is former Columbia and Universal Pictures chief Frank Price, and his grandfather was a prominent TV show creator. The series would have included a Price-like character named Richard Forman, who has a younger girlfriend: a writer from NY named "Lita". Price scored hits with "Transparent", which won Emmys in 2015 and 2016, and he persuaded Woody Allen to make his first TV series - a partnership Price would later have to publicly defend, given accusations that Allen had molested his adopted daughter. Those women-centric series ended up sweeping the awards show.
