After sexual harassment allegations against American producer Harvey Weinstein triggered massive outrage over the past week, a producer of Amazon Studios’ TV shows, Isa Dick Hackett, has now come forward and shared her own “shocking and surreal” experience of sexual harassment with Amazon’s Media Development Division head, Roy Price, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. 

Hackett — executive producer of the Amazon series “The Man In The High Castle" — claimed Price repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances towards her at a Comic-Con in San Diego, California in July 2015.  

According to Hackett, on July 10, 2015, after promoting “The Man In The High Castle” at the Comic-Con, Hackett attended the dinner with the Amazon staff and the show’s cast at the U.S. Grant Hotel. That was the first time she met Price. She said he asked her to attend an Amazon staff party later at night at the W Hotel (now the Renaissance) and shared the taxi with Price and Michael Paull, CEO of the digital media company ‘BAMTech’.

Hackett further revealed in the interview that as soon as they sat in the cab, Price insistently said, “You will love my d**k.”

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Hackett told at least two people about the supposed incident immediately. She also revealed that she made it clear to Price that she was a lesbian, with wife and kids, and was not interested.

“A**l sex!” he relentlessly kept saying in her ear once they arrived at the party. 

Hackett said she also reported the incident to Amazon executives and though she never found out the outcome of that inquiry, she did not see Price at any event, which involved her show, after that.

Hours after the initial publication of the story, an Amazon spokesperson said, "Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. Albert Cheng, currently the chief operating officer of Amazon Studios, will assume Price’s duties on a temporary basis," The New York Times reported. 

Twitterati was also quick to react to the allegations and call out Price. Many users appreciated Hackett for having the strength to come forward with her story. A Twitter user by the name, Jason Lemus, tweeted, “Power undoubtedly corrupts the soundest of minds. We must all remember to simply act like decent human beings. #HarveyWeinstein #royprice.”

Another Twitter user by the name Jessica wrote, “#HarveyWeinstein, #royprice, #DonaldTrump, how much more powerful (white) men have been doing this shit? Something needs to change!”

When asked about why she decided to come forward, Hackett said she was inspired after detailed accusations of abuse from numerous women against Weinstein.“I think women inspire each other. I feel inspired by the other women who have been far braver than I am, who have come forward. I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change,” she said.
