The latest Hollywood star to turn against Weinstein following the harassment revelations was Meryl Streep, who called Weinstein "God" when accepting her Golden Globe Award in 2012.

"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company - Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar - have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately", the Weinstein Company said in a statement. She praised "the intrepid women who raised their voices".
She said: "One thing can be clarified".
"Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally".
Writing on Twitter, Mark, 49, said: "To be clear what Harvey Weinstein did was a disgusting abuse of power and terrible. Each courageous voice that is raised, heard, and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game", Streep concluded.
Sunday night, Sharon Waxman of the Wrap wrote about that same issue, but from the media's point of view, alleging that she wrote about Weinstein's behavior for the New York Times in 2004, but outside pressure forced the news outlet to gut the story.
Last week, Weinstein was accused of a series of sexual harassments and assaults by a number of women over a number of decades.
