Amanda Segel, an executive producer on the TV miniseries "The Mist," which was produced by the Weinstein Co., told Variety that Bob Weinstein repeatedly sexually harassed her over a period of three months in 2016. Weinstein and his lawyer both strongly denied wrongdoing. In a separate report, the Wall Street Journal late Tuesday reported that Weinstein exhibited a pattern of bullying and abusive behavior toward employees, according to multiple sources, which would not have been tolerated at most other American companies.
