In a rare public accusation between powerful Hollywood producers, Megan Ellison has accused Scott Rudin of “abusive, racist, and sexist behavior,” saying the recent Hollywood Reporter article detailing anew his pattern of workplace bullying “barely scratches the surface.”
Megan Ellison, who heads Annapurna Pictures and is the daughter of Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, tweeted her accusation against Rudin on Wednesday. She compared the Oscar-winning Rudin to Harvey Weinstein, saying people are still afraid to speak out because of his ruthless behavior.
