According to Vulture, Weinstein lashed out at Lane, who was the party's master of ceremonies, over a joke about then-Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani's comb-over.

Despite her close ties to Weinstein, who was outed by the New York Times last week for decades of sexual harassment against women, Hillary Clinton, who based the majority of her campaign on fighting for women, has not made a statement about her long time friend. She represented women who brought sexual harassment claims against former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, comedian Bill Cosby and President Trump.

The developments, along with the departure of yet another lawyer for Weinstein, are the latest fallout from allegations against the Oscar-winner that The New York Times detailed in an expose on Thursday. The producer disputed the report but immediately apologized for misconduct and announced that he would be taking a leave of absence from his company.

In a subsequent interview with the New York Post, Weinstein said that he was going to sue the Times for "reckless reporting". Outside of Hollywood, thousands of women have been responding to Weinstein's allegations on Twitter with their own stories of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Facing global outcry, Weinstein gave a statement to the Times apologizing for his past.

On Friday, The Huffington Post published a graphic account from local TV reporter Lauren Sivan. Weinstein is on indefinite leave from the company he co-founded while it conducts an investigation into the allegations. USA TODAY has reached out to Weinstein for comment.
