Amazon Studios chief suspended following sexual harassment allegations

"We take seriously any questions about the conduct of our employees", an Amazon spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. Variety was the first to report Price's suspension. She said that during a cab ride with Price and former Amazon executive Michael Paull, Price repeatedly propositioned her and made inappropriate sexual comments. Check back for updates.

Price joined Amazon in 2004, overseeing the launch of its digital video store and eventually its streaming service.

Price didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"You will love my dick", Price allegedly said, according to Hackett's account, despite Hackett reiterating that she wasn't interested, telling Price she is a lesbian with a wife and children.

Also on Thursday, actress Rose McGowan said on Twitter that she had told Price that she had been assaulted by Weinstein, who was forced out of his company this week following reports in the New Yorker and the New York Times that he had harassed and assaulted numerous women over the years.

The claims compound the problems for Amazon Studios, which has won critical acclaim for some productions but has struggled to make TV shows that capture the popular imagination like Netflix's "House of Cards" and "Stranger Things". In recent months, sources say Amazon is taking a hard look at its original scripted programming choices, that has resulted in the cancellations of pricey dramas The Last Tycoon and Z: The Beginning of Everything, the latter of which was axed after a surprise season two renewal.
