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?
