It seems every day lately, there is a new story that has surfaced of stars getting the not-so-royal treatment in Hollywood. Though it’s been years in these cases, many are only coming forward now. Now, with the Isa Hackett and Roy Price story, it just doesn’t seem to be dying down. So, what happened between Isa Hackett and Roy Price? The Amazon Studios programming chief was suspended very recently because of his alleged lewd and sexist comments toward Isa Hackett in 2015.
What and When?
In the wake of the recent similar allegations made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, closet stories of women being subjected to sexually inundated words and behavior is on the rise. And now, Isa Hackett has come forward with her own similar experience in the business and Roy Price has been put on a “leave of absence” for the time being. Meanwhile the COO, Albert Cheng has stepped in to be named as the interim boss at Amazon. It remains to be seen what the future course of action by both the parties will be. Will Roy Price pay the price for what he’s been accused of? Will his net worth be affected if these allegations are true?
This incident reportedly took place at a 2015 Comic-Con event, while promoting one of Amazon’s hit shows. The programming chief apparently boasted about his penis and made sexual innuendos and advances towards Hackett at the after-party, allegedly even in front of other Amazon executives. The episode of sexist comments happened when they were in a taxi together on their way to the party, and Price told Hackett, “You will love my D***.” According to Hackett, she made it clear she was not interested, yet he persisted throughout the evening. Apparently, Isa was shocked when the chief also screamed “Anal Sex” in her ear later that night at the party. But all this time, she was silent about it. Hackett says the recent Weinstein allegations gave her the courage to come forth with her own story of sexual harassment.
She had reported the incident to other colleagues at the time, and told them that she had no intention of accepting his advances. According to her, she even went as far as telling Price that she was a lesbian and had a wife and three kids. Whether that was true or not, many may wonder what Isa Hackett’s wife has to say about all this!
