The British Film Institute has announced that Harvey Weinstein is no longer a recipient of their highest honour. In  a statement Thursday afternoon, the organisation announced that Weinstein would no longer be able to keep his Fellowship award.  The news comes after literally just about everybody, has, come forth with accusations and concrete allegations that Weinstein assaulted; raped, or flat-out harassed them.

“Sexual harassment, abuse and bullying is appalling and unacceptable under any circumstances. Everyone working in the film industry – and any industry – should be safe and respected in the workplace. We wholeheartedly support those brave enough to come forward,” it wrote. “The film industry urgently needs more women represented on every level, on and off screen. We don’t believe this situation would have taken so long to surface had there been greater parity of women in the industry. Advocating for better inclusion and representation is central to the BFI’s strategic priorities and we have introduced a number of interventions to drive change.”
