"I am utterly disgusted by the continuing revelations of Harvey Weinstein's horrifying and unforgivable actions", Cumberbatch said. Weinstein was sacked Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother. "I do not put myself in the category at all of those women that he hurt".

Due to the rising tension on the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, the ShowTime drama "Guantanamo" also suffers the consequences. "We need to collectively stand up and support victims of abuse such as the courageous and inspiring women who have spoken out against him and say we hear you and believe you". "I saw it and I asked him to get help for many years", Bob said. He even claims that they begged him to get help, knowing he has a sickness that is "inexcusable".

Some 30 women - including actresses Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow - have spoken out recently to say Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed or sexually assaulted them.

Since the scandal broke, The Weinstein Co. has been under increased scrutiny and is expected to undergo a name change, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I know him on a personal level better than anyone".

Weinstein says that his brother's lack of remorse "kills" him, calling his apology letter [VIDEO] "lame".

"The Academy finds the conduct described in the allegations against Harvey Weinstein to be repugnant, abhorrent, and antithetical to the high standards of the Academy and the creative community it represents", the statement read. "It can't be done that quickly", he said.

Bob previously spoke out against Harvey in a statement released to TMZ, after it was rumored Harvey thought Bob leaked information to the New York Times.

Update: In a press release, Bob Weinstein refuted the report that the studio was on the brink of collapse, saying, "Our banks, partners and shareholders are fully supportive of our company and it is untrue that the company or board is exploring a sale or shutdown of the company".

Harvey Weinstein has since checked himself in a rehab facility in Arizona for sex addiction.

"Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

"Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of those relationships were consensual", Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister said in a statement to the Post.
