Amazon Studios boss resigns amid Weinstein scandal

Price had been an executive with Amazon for the past 13 years.

The head of Amazon Studios resigned today after being accused of sexual harassment by a producer, The New York Times reports, noting that a spokesman for Amazon confirmed the resignation of Roy Price. Under the control of a "psychotic imperial Thai dwarf" named Mr. Goodtimes, Cindy is drugged, beaten with a machete and told she will be "fucked like a dead fish". She alleged that Price lewdly propositioned her in a taxi in 2015 and told her "You will love my d-k", before shouting "anal sex!" in her ear later that night.

Hackett, who is the daughter of late legendary science fiction author and Man in the High Castle writer Philip K. Dick, said Price repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances toward her following the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015.

Hackett called the incident "shocking and surreal" and said she was inspired to tell her story by women who came forward to publicly detail allegations of sexual harassment against film and TV mogul Harvey Weinstein. Price could not immediately be reached independently by Reuters and he declined to comment to the Hollywood Reporter.

While mulling over whether or not his company should green light the show, Price reportedly asked a group of Amazon staffers if the stars would "show their t-s" - and also explained aloud why he'd pick up the show even if they didn't bare all.

Amazon has previously said that it takes the concerns of its employees seriously and encourages them to speak up.

This marks the end of a chapter for Amazon and swift fall from grace for Price who'd come up with the business plan for an Amazon entertainment division, launched the unit and ran it from Day one.

"An important conversation has begun about the need to create a culture in our industry which values respect and decency and rejects the abuse of power and dehumanising treatment of others", she said.
