French President Emmanuel Macron has begun the process of stripping Harvey Weinstein's Legion d’Honneur, after the Hollywood movie mogul's numerous allegations of sexual misconduct became public, saying it is "because his actions lack honor."

Bloomberg reports:

Macron’s request is the latest action taken against Weinstein in the wake of numerous sexual harassment allegations. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted Saturday to expel the film producer, who is known for popular films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Clerks” and “The Crying Game.”
