Amazon Suspends Studio Head for Sexual Harassment After Sitting on Allegations for 2 Years

by Evil HR Lady on October 13, 2017

In the wake of the shocking revelations of Harvey Weinstein’s years and years of sexual harassment, another movie executive faces sexual harassment allegations. Roy Price, head of Amazon Movie Studios is currently on a leave of absence after Isa Hackett (sometimes referred to as Isa Hackett Dick) went public with her accusations.

Hackett is a producer on the Amazon shows, The Man in High Castle and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. Hackett claims that in 2015 Price approached her sexually by saying, “You will love my dick,” according to a report at The Hollywood Reporter. Hackett said she was not interested, and Price persisted and followed up by saying “Anal sex!” into her ear at a party later that evening.

Hackett immediately reported the incident, and Amazon investigated, but no one informed Hackett of the outcome. She did note, however, that Price didn’t appear at any events for her shows after that.

That’s actually an okay outcome–separating the two employees. Hackett didn’t suffer any career or personal retribution for her accusations. So what did Amazon do wrong and why are they suspending Price now?

I think it actually makes them look worse for doing something now. If they really conducted a full investigation and took appropriate disciplinary action back then, they should be able to stand by it now. Right now it looks like they thought, “Crap! We’re going to get found out so, quick! let’s do something so we can say we did something.” Dumb!
