Jim Gianopulos, head of Paramount Pictures, said in a memo to staff that “multiple individuals came to us to raise concerns around comments made by Amy Powell in a professional setting.” After discussing the remarks with the Viacom Inc. division’s human-resources and legal teams, Paramount “made the decision to terminate Amy’s employment, effective immediately,” he said. Powell allegedly made the remarks during a discussion about the “First Wives Club” reboot, a project that features a mostly black cast, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
