Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski “can’t go forward with” her deal with Weinstein Books unless Harvey Weinstein resigns, she said in an early-morning tweet on Saturday. “I have a three-book deal with Weinstein Books, through Hachette. I can’t go forward with those books unless Harvey resigns,” she wrote.
The deal with Weinstein Books was announced in July. According to the New York Post‘s “Page Six,” it includes two new books slated for fall of 2018 and a revised version of her 2011 book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You’re Worth.
She also tweeted out a call to action for those in the entertainment industry. “Authors, actors, and moviemakers should not work for any Weinstein company until he resigns. Not a close call,” she wrote.
A rep for Weinstein Books did not immediately return a request from Highlight Hollywood for comment.
