Kevin Tsujihara, the CEO of Warner Bros has stepped down.
According to reports, Tsujihara stepped down amidst claims of sexual misconduct. Kevin reportedly tried getting movie roles for an actress he slept with.
Reacting to the development, the Chief executive of parent company WarnerMedia, John Stankey, said it is “in the best interest” of the company that Tsujihara steps down. “Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the company’s leadership expectations,” Warner said.
A few weeks ago, a report by Hollywood Reporter, revealed that an actress had asked Kevin to help secure movie roles after she had sex with him. T
Addressing his staff, Kevin said;
“It has become clear that my continued leadership could be a distraction and an obstacle to the company’s continued success. The hard work of everyone within our organisation is truly admirable, and I won’t let media attention on my past detract from all the great work the team is doing” he wrote.
