Following the Weinstein allegations, accusations of sexual harassment hit Ben Affleck, Oliver Stone and Amazon exec Roy Price.
Hollywood is still reeling from a slew of sexual misconduct accusations against producer Harvey Weinstein, and many are sharing their own stories about sexual misconduct and abuse in the entertainment industry.
On Thursday, Vanity Fair reported at least 34 women have come forward against Weinstein. Now, accusations of sexual harassment have hit actor Ben Affleck, director Oliver Stone and Amazon Studios head Roy Price.
Amazon suspended Price after The Hollywood Reporter published a sexual harassment accusation from producer Isa Hackett.
Crews tweeted on Tuesday: "I understand and empathize with those who have remained silent. But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator. Hollywood is not the only business [where] this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior — you are not alone."
This recent flood of reports and accusations shed light on not only the severity of the issue but also the fact that many people in Hollywood might have known about it the whole time.
Even before the accusations against Weinstein came out, the mogul's alleged misconduct and temper were referenced in "30 Rock," "Entourage" and the Oscars.
Some say the problem might stem from Hollywood's "casting couch" culture — a term used to describe sexual exploitation during auditions. The term reportedly goes back to the 1930s, and despite past reports of abuse, Slate notes that very little has changed since then.
