The #MeToo movement brings down another music exec as Warner Bros. CEO steps down after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced.
According to Page Six, Warner Bros. made the announcement following an allegation that Kevin Tsujihara, the company’s chief executive officer, promised “acting roles in exchange for sex.”
Warner Media’s CEO John Stankey says of Tsujihara’s resignation, “Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the company’s leadership expectations and could impact the company’s ability to execute going forward.”
According to an article published by The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin and an actress named Charlotte Kirk, who played in Ocean’s 8 had a sexual relationship dating back to 2013 and Tsujihara 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.
Warner Media says that a third party is still looking into the ongoing investigation.
