Harvey Weinstein Out at Directors Guild of America

”Harvey Weinstein has resigned his membership at the DGA,“ a spokesperson for the guild tells TheWrap

Harvey Weinstein is no longer a member of the Directors Guild of America.

“Harvey Weinstein has resigned his membership at the DGA,” a spokesperson for the guild told TheWrap. Searching through the member directory, Weinstein’s name could no longer be found on the guild’s website. The spokesperson had no further comment.

A spokesperson for Weinstein told TheWrap, “Mr. Weinstein has resigned from the DGA and has nothing but the utmost respect for the organization.”

Last month, the guild announced that it had filed disciplinary charges against the disgraced indie movie mogul, issuing a statement condemning “the scourge of sexual harassment on our industry.”

Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein were credited as co-directors on the 1986 film, “Playing for Keeps.” He also has a directing credit on 1987’s “The Gnomes’ Great Adventure.”

BAFTA, the Television Academy and AMPAS have all made similar moves in recent weeks — the latter expelled the movie mogul in the wake of numerous allegations of sexual harassment and rape.

The news comes just a few hours after Weinstein was lapped with the first civil claims in England and Wales for accusations of sexual misconduct. In addition to Weinstein being named personally, the suit also targets The Weinstein Company UK Ltd and The Weinstein Company LLC in the U.S.

A spokesperson for Weinstein has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
