Bafta, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has suspended Harvey Weinstein's membership from the organisation.It is in light of allegations against the film producer which include sexual assault and harassment.Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Heather Graham are some of the stars who have come forward with allegations. Bafta released a statement saying it hoped the announcement "sends a clear message" about such behaviour.The announcement said: "Whilst Bafta has previously been a beneficiary of Mr Weinstein's support for its charitable work, it considers the reported alleged behaviour completely unacceptable and incompatible with Bafta's values.
"This has led to Mr Weinstein's suspension, and it will be followed by a formal process as laid out in Bafta's constitution."We hope this announcement sends a clear message that such behaviour has absolutely no place in our industry."Bafta will continue to work with the film, games and television industries to improve access to rewarding and fulfilling careers in safe, professional working environments."Weinstein has admitted his behaviour has "caused a lot of pain" but has described many of the allegations against him as "patently false".
