Scott Rudin's fallout grows

So after the recent allegations made against Rudin's toxic work environment, on saturday his PR made an announcement that he's stepping back from Broadway.

The following day David Graham-Caso made a video saying his twin brother, Kevin Blake Graham-Caso, suffered horrific abuse when he was working for Rudin in 2008 and 2009.

Time's Up has also joined their voice and is asking for Rudin to release his employees from prior non-disclure agreements.

"First and foremost, we owe a debt of gratitude to the brave employees who came forward with allegations of workplace bullying and harassment against Scott Rudin. For far too long, this abusive behavior has been a stepping stone to success in Hollywood and on Broadway — but those days are over."
“No one should have to endure the kind of abhorrent mistreatment that has been reported and live under fear of retaliation. We still don’t know the full extent of what occurred. That’s why Time’s Up demands Scott Rudin release his former staff from any nondisclosure agreements. Doing so is critical to truly creating workplaces where every employee feels safe and respected across all industries.”

Now we just wait to see how this ends. Some people are calling for a boycott from hollywood celebs (he's one of the producers in Denzel Washington's and Frances Mcdormand's upcoming "Macbeth") and to stop supporting his old films (some of his productions include: Lady Bird, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network, The First Wives Club, among others)
