Anthony Anderson, Christian Slater, Billie Lourd and Henry Winkler are also among the former employees.
“We conducted a thorough review of this matter and based on that review, terminated Chris’s employment,” a statement read.
“While Chris fully complied with CNN’s standards and practices during his time with the network, he has acknowledged that he made mistakes and apologized for his actions.”
Anderson has already returned to Workaholics and Ballers since the dismissal. Lourd was included in Deadline’s Power 25 list of most powerful women in television, just two days before the firing.
The Weinstein stories are really starting to pile up, and the latest being that CNN fired its chief legal correspondent Chris Cuomo for allegedly helping his brother, the governor of New York, by providing information to The New York Times on a case involving sexual harassment allegations against top figure in the media industry, disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
