Following multiple accusations of sexual harassment from women he has worked with in the past, Andy Signore was fired from Defy Media, an online distribution company which produces shows such as “The Screen Junkies Show” and “Honest Trailers,” on Monday.

The company said that they were made aware of the allegations in August and that is when they decided to launch an internal investigation into the matter. “On Friday, new information became available and the scope and magnitude of his inappropriate actions became apparent,” the company said in a statement. “We are acting swiftly to address the concerns of the people affected, and that going forward, our community is free of harassment or discrimination of any kind."

“Our Screen Junkies colleagues and freelancers are a team of remarkable creators serving loyal fans and we will support and protect them,” the statement read. “If anyone else is aware of behavior of this type, we would encourage them to bring it to our attention.”

The senior vice president of content and founder of "Screen Junkies," an online movie magazine and YouTube channel, Signore is known to have created popular digital series such as "Honest Trailers," "Man at Arms," “The Screen Junkies Show", "Prank it FWD", "Super-Fan Builds," among others, according to Famous Birthdays, a biography site for celebrities.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Signore went on to graduate from Summa Cum Laude from Columbia College Hollywood in 2003. Shortly after getting his degree, he wrote, co-directed, and starred in his first feature film, “The Janitor,” which was a slasher-comedy movie. He married Miranda, his current wife, in 2006.

Signore’s trump card was his decision to focus on digital media and content. He started his own online comedy brand, SecretSauceTV, through which he successfully released several videos.

A Beverly Hills distribution company — The Collective (now Collective Digital Studios) — signed Signore soon after, as the director of digital content. There he got to work with talented artists like Kevin Nealon, Eddie Izzard, Garry Shandling, according to his profile on IMDB, online movie database.

In 2009, Signore also did freelance work for IGN, became a writer and producer for Current TV and was hired by Disney's Internet Media Group, to become the lead producer of the Original Content Development team for Disney’s official website.

The comedian rose to fame when he became associated with Break Media — one of the leading companies in online content and distribution. There he created online series which went on to become massive hits. Break Media merged with Alloy Digital in October 2013 to become Defy Media, where Signore worked as the vice president of original programming.

He was ousted from Defy Media after three women came forward with accusations of sexual harassment against Signore. The first allegation came from Emma Bowers, who was an intern for "Screen Junkies" in 2010. In a Twitter post on Oct. 5, she revealed that while she worked for Signore, he had “tried to sexually assault" her "on multiple occasions,” warning her that if she tried to reveal the matter, he would fire her then-boyfriend, Josh Tapia, an employee at the company at that time.

After Bowers’ allegation, other women came forward with similar accusations. April Dawn, who had also worked with Signore in the past, also tweeted out saying her plight was identical to that of Bowers.

The third accusation came from a woman called Devin Murphy, who claimed Signore made unwanted sexual advances towards her and tried to meet her on several occasions.
