According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers has severed all ties with director and producer Brett Ratner in light of the recent sexual harassment and assault accusations six women have made against him, including actress Olivia Munn. The LA Times reported that Munn visited the set of After The Sunset, a film Ratner directed back in 2004.
The LA Times also detailed a rape accusation Melanie Kohler made against Ratner. Kolhler stated:
[Ratner] preyed on me as a drunk girl [and] forced himself upon me ... Brett Ratner raped me.
In light of the allegations being made, I am choosing to personally step away from all Warner Bros.-related activities. I don’t want to have any possible negative impact to the studio until these personal issues are resolved.
I think this is the "Cleansing of Hollywood"— City of Two Rivers (@CityofTwoRivers) November 2, 2017

You don't know what it's like to
1) be violated
2) have to relive it
