Amazon executive Roy Price was suspended indefinitely after he had allegedly pressured a lesbian producer for sex and made lewd comments to her.

Man in the High Castle Producer Isa Hackett, who is the daughter of the book’s author Philip K. Dick, said she was harassed by Price in 2015 shortly after San Diego Comic-Con. According to LOGO’s NewNowNext, Price told Hackett “You’d love my dick,” and attempted to proposition her for sex while in a cab ride to an after-party.

Hackett said she told Price that she had a wife and kids and made clear she wasn’t interested. Hackett told some coworkers after the encounter occurred, but said she came forward after the news of multiple sexual assaults by hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.

“As somebody with some power, I feel it is imperative for me to speak out,” she said. “I want to call out [Price’s] behavior and also hold myself to a certain standard.”

Amazon has not said how long Price’s suspension will last.
