Crisis public relations firm Sitrick and Company is no longer representing disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, the company told TheWrap on Tuesday.
Weinstein has been accused of rape, sexual assault and harassment by nearly 90 women in in various cities around the world. The producer has consistently denied any nonconsensual sex through his former Sitrick spokesperson, retained shortly after articles containing early accusations were published in the New Yorker and the New York Times last October.
Sitrick has been a surprising holdover for the past five months as Weinstein watched several key crisis players bail as the accusations piled up and the national conversation became consumed by the #MeToo movement sparked by Weinstein’s alleged misconduct.
His point contact, Holly Baird, confirmed their parting of ways. No replacement rep for Weinstein has yet been named.
Criminal investigations into Weinstein’s accused misconduct are underway in New York, Beverly Hills and London. Though he was fires as CEO and Chairman of the Board, The Weinstein Company entered a voluntary bankruptcy sale process last month.
