Amazon programming chief Roy Price has been suspended in the wake of sexual harassment accusations from a TV producer.
An Amazon spokesperson told Variety and TheWrap Thursday night that Price was “on leave of absence effective immediately.”
Price’s reported suspension came after Isa Hackett, a producer for Amazon’s “The Man in the High Castle,” told The Hollywood Reporter that he repeatedly propositioned her at a company party in July 2015.
Hackett said that Price started making lewd comments during a cab ride to the party — and continued even after she told him she’s a lesbian with a wife and children, the magazine reported. At one point, Hackett claimed that Price told her: “You will love my d—k.”
