Time’s Up CEO Resigns After Telling Colleagues Not to Publicly Support Cuomo Accuser

HeadlineAug 27, 2021

The CEO of Time’s Up resigned Thursday amid the ongoing fallout over its leaders’ support for disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The Washington Post reported this week Tina Tchen texted staffers to “stand down” from releasing a statement in support of Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan. Her resignation comes less than three weeks after prominent lawyer Roberta Kaplan resigned as the chair of Time’s Up over her role in advising Cuomo on how to respond to the sexual harassment allegations. Time’s Up was founded in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to support survivors of sexual harassment, assault and discrimination.
