Head of Amazon Studios Axed For Sexual Harassment

On a woman’s say so, a top exec at Amazon is gone.

He allegedly said the worst possible thing he could have said given who he was talking to.

He said “you’re gonna love my d*ck” to a lesbian.

Good read, dude.

Hollywood Reporter-

In the wake of revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged years-long sexual harassment and assault, a producer of one of Amazon Studios’ highest-profile TV shows is ready to talk about her “shocking and surreal” experience with Amazon’s programming chief Roy Price.

Isa Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick, whose work is the basis for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle, as well as the upcoming anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. Hackett, 50, is an executive producer on both series. Price, 51, is head of Amazon Studios and has presided over its growth into a major streaming service with such series as Transparent and movies such as Manchester by the Sea. His family has deep connections in the entertainment world: His father, Frank, ran Columbia Pictures and Universal Studios. (The existence of the alleged incident detailed below and the subsequent Amazon investigation were previously reported by the website The Information.)

On the evening of July 10, 2015, after a long day of promoting Man in the High Castle at Comic-Con in San Diego, Hackett attended a dinner with the show’s cast and Amazon staff at the U.S. Grant Hotel. There she says she met Price for the first time. He asked her to attend an Amazon staff party later that night at the W Hotel (now the Renaissance) and she ended up in a taxi with Price and Michael Paull, then another top Amazon executive and now CEO of the digital media company BAMTech.

Once in the cab, Hackett says Price repeatedly and insistently propositioned her. “You will love my dick,” he said, according to Hackett, who relayed her account to multiple individuals in the hours after the alleged episode. (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 a lesbian with a wife and children.

Hackett says Price did not relent in the cab or once they arrived at the Amazon party. As she talked with other executives, she says that Price stepped close to her and loudly said, “Anal sex!” in her ear.

Hackett says she reported the incident to Amazon executives immediately. An outside investigator, Christine Farrell of Public Interest Investigations Inc., was brought in and spoke to Hackett and executives at Amazon. 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.

  1. That there is a smooth operator.

    A mighty wind is shaking many Hollywood perverts out of the trees.

    Each day is getting weirder than the last.

    Keep blowing mighty wind.

  2. Hopefully this causes the victims of the child raping hollywood pedophiles to come forward now in droves. We need Corey Feldman to come out and admit Weinerstein is one of his rapists.

    Its time for a class action civil lawsuit by all of these blackballed victims against Weinerstein Productions and Miramax. At least by the pedophile rape victims.

  3. Having a Father who ran Columbia pics etc , might have something to do with it. He had to have seen the raw power his Dad held over Women !
    He’s probably living his 12 year old dreams !!!

  4. “And now you will blow me.”

    I think the rabid left has found out that attacking conservatives has only led to a mental loss/cul de sac, so in order to keep up their frothy hatefest they’ve decided to go after their weaker ‘own’. (their sort-of-almost-equal-to-them own) Feast! Feast my children! Gorge yourselves on the dead flesh and souls of your forebears! Grow Triggly fat on your own ignorance! MWAAAAAHAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!

  5. Ugh. This is all so stupid. Rich guys of all colors hit on women and say stupid shit. They’re usually drunk. Go on the road with male comics for one year and tell me that it ain’t so.
    But when you threaten someone’s job because they won’t suck your dick or fuck you? Did that idiot actually do that? It sounds like he was just a big dickhead.
    BIG difference

  6. At first I was wondering if this was another “Bill O’Reilly” “she said he said, but he really didn’t”. But I guess he really (O’Reilly) said and did it.

  7. As usual, the left (woman in this story) gets the cause wrong and prescribes the wrong cure. She says the answer is more women in positions of power in Hollywood. If there’s no morality and you’re selling perversion, the gender of the person at the top isn’t going to change anything.

    She probably would thrill to the thought of replacing Weinstein or Price with Hillary Clinton.
