channing tatum wanted to prove that he has zero tolerance for sexual assault and/or harassment after the renowned Harvey Weinstein was exposed to his decades-long misconducts against women several weeks ago. In a joint statement with Reid Carolin, the two announced their decision to cut their ties with The Weinstein Company (TWC) in the wake of the scandal.

The two specifically mentioned their lone project in progress with the company, which is an adaptation of "Forgive Me Leonard Peacock" by Matthew Quick. The fiction novel revolves around the life of a high school student who was sexually abused by his own best friend.

Actor, film producer cut ties with TWC amid Weinstein scandal

The statement further said that the actor and film producer will no longer take part in the said project or anything else owned by the studio co-founded by Harvey Weinstein. Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin considered their move to cut ties with TWC as part of their commitment to bring real positive change after hearing the stories of alleged sexual abuse victims.

The actor and film producer also commended the dozens of women who have come forward to share the horror they have experienced in the hands of Harvey Weinstein. They even dubbed these women "true heroes" for speaking the truth and for inspiring others to stand up for their right.

Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin ended the joint statement with a call to end abuse in the industry.

Celebrities speak out after Weinstein exposé

While many are pleased that the actor and film producer responded to the ongoing issue of sexual abuse in the Hollywood industry, others rather questioned why most celebrities have remained silent on Harvey Weinstein's alleged misconducts toward female employees and actresses for the last three decades.

"Why now? Everyone in the entertainment industry knew about Harvey Weinstein for years and years," a commenter said. "I think this is too little too late."

Similarly, Skeet Ulrich admitted that he is aware of the allegations against the award-winning producer since he started working with him in the 1990s. The "Riverdale" star also revealed that a renowned personality told him similar things about the movie mogul even before the news came out.

But despite his knowledge of Harvey Weinstein's reputation, Skeet Ulrich confessed he felt powerless to speak out at that time. As a young actor who was then trying to create a name in a competitive industry, he also held back out of fear for losing his job.
