‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Brzezinski to Cancel Book Deal Unless Weinstein Resigns

Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski announced on Twitter that she won’t follow through with her three-book deal with Weinstein Books unless Harvey Weinstein resigns.

“I have a three-book deal with Weinstein Books, through Hachette,” Brzezinski wrote on Saturday. “I can’t go forward with those books unless Harvey resigns.”

She called for Weinstein’s resignation from the company, suggesting that he “face his sickness, and go into a long, self-imposed exile.”

Brzezinski is the author of “Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You’re Worth”; “Grow Your Value: Living and Working to Your Full Potential”; “Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction — And My Own”; and “All Things at Once.”

Her book deal was announced in July, with the first release under the company — a new and expanded edition of the 2011’s “Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You’re Worth,” with commentary from Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sheryl Sandberg — scheduled to arrive next spring.

Weinstein has been the subject of increasing controversy since the release of an explosive New York Times article that detailed accusations of sexual harassment from numerous women. He has since taken an “indefinite” leave of absence from Weinstein Company and issued a bizarre statement apologizing for his actions while simultaneously preparing to sue the Times for their report. His attorney Lisa Bloom also resigned on Saturday, despite initially defending him after he retained her as an advisor.
