Queen Elizabeth had awarded the 67-year-old the title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the Empire back in 2004 due to his contributions to films in the country. The honor is the second highest, next only to that of a Knighthood.

In a formal request written by MP Chi Onwurah, it was stated that Weinstein is no longer known for contributions to the movie industry, but for abuse of power and sexual assault.
