Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has found himself swamped in allegations of sexually inappropriate behaviour recently from actresses who claim that Weinstein used his power over the film industry and their desperate desire to break into acting to his advantage and subjected them to “humiliating” experiences to secure roles.

In the wake of the accusations against Weinstein, British Prime Minister Theresa May has publicly expressed her belief that perhaps Weinstein should be stripped of the CBE that he was awarded by Britain in 2004 for his contributions to the world of film. However, May has suggested that the decision of whether or not to take back a CBE is “not one for Downing Street.” Instead, it’s up to the Queen, who will likely do nothing.
