Amazon Studios chief Roy Price has resigned, five days after he was placed on a “leave of absence” after a producer accused him of sexual harassment, according to CNN.
Price was suspended following The Hollywood Reporter’s publication of an article detailing harassment allegations against him, made by Isa Hackett, a producer of the Amazon series “The Man in the High Castle.”
The harassment accusations stemmed from an incident in 2015. Hackett alleged that Price repeatedly made lewd comments to her, despite her rebuffs, while they were both attending Comic-Con.
Hackett told THR reporter Kim Masters that she reported the improper behavior to Amazon at the time.
Masters previously wrote about the alleged harassment for another outlet, The Information, over the summer, before the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke.
At the time, Amazon said it took the allegation seriously, but did not announce anything like a leave of absence.
In light of Price’s suspension, Amazon decided to cancel an event promoting its new shows in London this week. It’s unclear if there will be any other aftershocks for the company.
