The Great Unraveling: Amazon Studio Chief Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios and global content at Amazon Video, was put on a leave of absence Thursday following a report that the executive made obscene comments to a TV producer.

That article included few specifics about Ms. Hackett's claims, with Ms. Hackett providing a statement that she did not "wish to discuss the details of this troubling incident with Roy except to say Amazon investigated immediately and with an outside investigator".

Word of Price's exit comes only hours after "The Man in the High Castle" producer Isa Hackett detailed her harassment at the hands of the executive at Comic-Con 2015. Actress Rose McGowan said on Twitter on Thursday that she had warned Amazon not to do business with Harvey Weinstein, the now-disgraced producer, and was ignored.

Both Hackett and Price were attending an Amazon party where Price then allegedly yelled "Anal sex" into the woman's ear.

Casey Affleck - who has also been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment that he has denied - won a best actor Oscar this year for his role in the Amazon original movie "Manchester by the Sea".

There was no immediate response from Price.

Hackett's father was novelist Philip K. Dick.

A representative for attorney Lisa Bloom, who announced last week would no longer represent Weinstein this week, told the publication she would no longer represent Price.

Meanwhile, Price continued to spearhead other Amazon projects, including two Weinstein Company television shows - The Romanoffs, from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, and an untitled David O. Russell drama starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.

"I told the head of your studio that HW raped me". While other fare like Mozart in the Jungle, Sneaky Pete and One Mississippi have earned solid reviews, sources also say Amazon chairman Jeff Bezos was impatient for a Game of Thrones-style hit. "Be the change you want to see in the world".

The allegations come after Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was sacked because of his sexual harassment of many actress and other women over the years.
