11 Stars Accused of Sexual Misconduct Before Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein Scandal

The disgraced produced has been booted from one of Hollywood's biggest guilds and Jimmy Kimmel considers including Weinstein in his Oscars monologue.

Harvey Weinstein's decades-long history of sexual harassment and misconduct with multiple women continues to ripple beyond Hollywood.

Now, the police are investigating, more organizations are giving Weinstein the boot, one of his accusers believes she's being "silenced," and a late-night host might joke about the whole thing at the Oscars next year.

Here are the latest developments as of Tuesday:

UK Police Investigation

The UK police department is now investigating Weinstein for seven counts of sexual assault allegations, Sky News reported. The crimes, which were all reported in between Oct. 12 and Oct. 28, occurred between the late 1980s and 2015.

Two of the victims have said they were sexually assaulted by Weinstein three times. The seventh accuser said she was attacked right outside of the UK in the '80s, so that complaint will be passed onto the correct foreign authority.

"We take sexual offenses seriously, of course we do, and we will always receive an allegation and we will then assess that, and we will investigate fairly and proportionately," Met police commissioner Cressida Dick said.

As of Tuesday, Weinstein has not been arrested and continues to deny any allegations of non-consensual sex.

Weinstein Kicked Out of Producers Guild For Life

The Producers Guild of America began procedures to expel Weinstein late last week, but instead of waiting the 15 days to appeal the ruling, he decided to quit the guild. Since the disgraced producer didn't follow the proper procedure, the group consequently decided to ban him for life.

"As was recently reported, the Producers Guild's national board of directors voted unanimously to initiate proceedings to terminate the membership of Harvey Weinstein," the guild said in a statement. "The PGA constitution requires that members be given 15 days' notice before disciplinary action is taken. The guild has received notice that rather than addressing the guild's charges, Mr. Weinstein elected to resign his membership in the Producers Guild."

"In light of Mr. Weinstein's widely reported behavior - with new reports continuing to surface even now - the Producers Guild's national board has voted unanimously to enact a lifetime ban on Mr. Weinstein, permanently barring him from PGA membership. This unprecedented step is a reflection of the seriousness with which the Guild regards the numerous reports of Mr. Weinstein's decades of reprehensible conduct."

"Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the rakes of Producers Guild membership. As stated previously, the PGA's officers and national board of directors have created the Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force specifically charged with researching and proposing substantive and effective solutions to combat sexual harassment in the entertainment industry."

Jimmy Kimmel Will 'Probably' Mention the Scandal in 2018 Oscars

Jimmy Kimmel will "probably" take a page out of Seth MacFarlane's 2013 Oscar monologue playbook by taking a few shots at the disgraced Hollywood mogul at the 2018 award show. Only this time, the host will ensure his jokes won't offend the victims who have already spoken out.

"I probably will. It's not really a laughing matter," Kimmel told Vulture. "There'll be a lot of people in that room who maybe have been through experiences with him and that's not something I want them to relive on the night they get their Oscar."

Although Kimmel is the first comedian since the '90's to be asked to host the award show two years in a row, the late-night host thinks it's too early to decide what he should talk about in his opening statements.

"It's hard to figure our what we're going to say on the next show, let alone in March. There might not be an Oscars because North Korea may have struck the Dolby Theatre," he said.

There is a Warrant for Rose McGowan's Arrest

Rose McGowan, one of the most vocal women accusing Weinstein of rape, is now being charged with a felony possession of a controlled substance.

According to the police, they received the warrant in February after the "personal belongings" McGowan left on a United flight tested positive for narcotics. The substance has not yet been revealed.

"The warrant obtained February 1, 2017, was and has been a matter of public record since issuance and our police have made attempts to contact Ms. McGowan regarding the matter," said Andrew Tull, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

The airport police are now requesting that McGowan appears in court, but the actress is brushing off the accusation as horse crap.

"Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSESHIT," McGowan tweeted Monday.
