Isa Hackett, a producer on an Amazon series, claims that Amazon Studios chief Roy Price propositioned her using crudely suggestive language. (The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Hackett told at least two people about the alleged incident in the immediate aftermath.) Hackett says she made clear to Price she was not interested and told him that she is lesbian with a wife and children.

In a story posted Thursday by The Hollywood Reporter, Hackett says the encounter occurred after a San Diego Comic-Con event in 2015 promoting "Man in the High Castle". "You will love my dick", Price said, according to Hackett, who relayed her account to others.

Hackett reported the incidents to studio executives who brought in investigators to look further into the allegations, The Hollywood Reported added.

Both Hackett and Price were attending an Amazon party where Price then allegedly yelled "Anal sex" into the woman's ear.

The allegations came just as actress Rose McGowan lashed out at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a Tweetstorm claiming the studio ignored her claims that Harvey Weinstein raped her.

"I didn't want to distract or deflate the energies of all the people who are so invested in these shows, and all of that positivity", she told THR.

Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick and a producer of Amazon's "Man in the High Castle", based on his work. "I hope we all continue to inspire each other and ultimately create change".

Amazon Studios head Roy Price has been put on a leave of absence, the content giant said Thursday.
