Okay #Roomies now things just went all the way left, as the #WarnerBros.’ CEO, chairman, and chief executive officer #KevinTsujihara recently stepped down from Warner Bros. following an alleged sexual misconduct scandal.
According to @pagesix this scandal unfolded as Kevin’s role had just been expanded to include global kids and family entertainment into the Warner Bros. company. He had to step down from Warner Bros. after he allegedly promised “acting roles in exchange for sex.” He in fact is “one of the highest-ranking executives to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations.”
WarnerMedia’s chief executive #JohnStankey made an announcement today that Kevin would be leaving, and it was in the studio’s best interest. John said, “Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the company’s leadership expectations and could impact the company’s ability to execute going forward.”
Earlier this month, an investigation was launched following a story published by The Hollywood Reporter, where text messages from 2013 were obtained between Kevin and actress #CharlotteKirk. These messages did suggest a quid pro sexual relationship between the two according to the site. Kevin allegedly promised that she’d be considered for roles in movies and T.V., and he reportedly claimed he would introduce her to some influential executives.
Charlotte has appeared in Warner Bros.’ “How to Be Single” and “Ocean’s 8.” She claims no sexual misconduct and inappropriate promises were made between her and Kevin.
The site reports that Kevin recently apologized stating “I deeply regret that I have made mistakes in my personal life that have caused pain and embarrassment to the people I love the most.” He then apologized to the company stating “I also deeply regret that these personal actions have caused embarrassment to the company and to all of you.”
WarnerMedia did say that a third-party law firm is carrying out an investigation.
We will keep you guys updated.
