According to reports US big-shot Scott Rudin has repeatedly abused staff for decades.
According to a Hollywood reporter and other foreign media on the 21st, Scott Rudin’s production staff were physically and emotionally abused and bullied by Scott Rudin. One employee who was severely bullied was found to have made extreme choices.
Rudin reportedly hit an employee’s computer monitor at the employee’s hand in 2012 when he failed to get his plane ticket. As the screen broke, the employee went to the emergency room with blood on his hands and was treated.
Employees revealed that Rudin abused employees for decades, throwing office supplies or appliances such as laptops, staplers, or swearing. Some argued that he usually does not control his anger well.
Scott Rudin’s employees said they had not been able to speak out because they were afraid of retaliation, but decided to disclose it in 2017 due to the influence of #MeToo. At that time, Hollywood big-name film producer Harvey Weinstein was kicked out of the company he founded after he was found to have sexually harassed an actress and a female employee for more than 30 years.
In the wake of the controversy, Scott Rudin said he would step down from the ongoing filmmaking.
Scott Rudin spent about 40 years in Hollywood producing films “No Country for Old Men”, “The Social Network” and the Broadway play “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Ten of his films were nominated for the Academy Awards, and “No Country for Old Men” won the best picture.
