Mika Brzezinski Says She’ll Drop Weinstein Book Deal if Harvey Weinstein Doesn’t Resign

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.Mika_1910x1000

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.
