Anfang Oktober wurde Harvey Weinstein, der Hollywood-Produzent, von seiner gleichnamigen Firma gefeuert, nachdem sich mehrere Frauen gemeldet hatten, die ihn der Vergewaltigung und sexuellen Nötigung beschuldigten.
In einem scheinbar seismischen Wandel in der Frage, welches Verhalten am Arbeitsplatz toleriert wird, wurde seither eine Kaskade hochkarätiger Männer, viele in der Unterhaltungs- und Nachrichtenmedienbranche, entlassen oder zur Kündigung gezwungen, nachdem sie des sexuellen Fehlverhaltens beschuldigt wurden, die von „unangemessenen Bemerkungen“ bis hin zu „Vergewaltigung“ reichte.
Einige hochkarätige Fälle sind nicht in der folgenden Liste aufgeführt, weil die Anschuldigungen des Fehlverhaltens nicht eindeutig sexueller Natur waren und die beschuldigten Männer sexuelles Fehlverhalten nicht zugegeben haben.
Beispielsweise wurden einige Männer wegen „unangemessenen Verhaltens“ oder „Fehlverhaltens“ entlassen, aber die Einzelheiten ihrer Handlungen bleiben unklar. Diese Seite wurde zuletzt Anfang Februar 2018 aktualisiert.
