Weinstein was also recently fired from The Weinstein Company, the independent film studio he co-founded with his brother, Bob Weinstein, in 2005. A statement from TWC's board of representatives, released on Sunday, revealed that his employment had been "terminated, effective immediately."
On Tuesday, TWC's Board of Representatives released a follow-up statement to ET, decrying Weinstein's actions and promising to conduct an independent investigation and assist in any criminal investigations.
"The Weinstein Company’s Board of Representatives - Bob Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar - are shocked and dismayed by the recently emerged allegations of extreme sexual misconduct and sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein," the statement read. "These alleged actions are antithetical to human decency. These allegations come as an utter surprise to the Board. Any suggestion that the Board had knowledge of this conduct is false."
"We are committed to assisting with our full energies in all criminal or other investigations of these alleged acts, while pursuing justice for the victims and a full and independent investigation of our own," they added.
