Harvey Weinstein banned for life from TV Academy over allegations of sexual harassment

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences  has placed a lifetime ban on Harvey Weinstein. The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences held a hearing Monday and its governing board voted to expel Weinstein from the Academy for life.

 His former company, The Weinstein Co., has produced a number of TV shows over the years -- most notably, perhaps, being "Project Runway."

In a statement, the Academy says it supports those women speaking out against Weinstein. They go on to say they're horrified by the widespread claims of sexual misconduct in the movie industry and are conducting a review of their membership codes of conduct.

"We are determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals from predatory harassment, ensuring they are able to practice their craft in a safe environment."  The statement concluded.
