"Honest Trailers" creator Andy Signore has been fired by Defy Media after sexual harassment and abuse charges lodged against him went public, Deadline.com reported.

Signore and "Honest Trailers" have been major players in the internet film community, pulling in 1 billion views since 2012, along with being the face of Screen Junkies properties, The Hollywood Reporter wrote.

"Honest Trailers," an Emmy-nominated show that satirizes movies and television trailers, has attracted such stars as Ryan Reynolds and Michael Bolton to appear and inspire the directors of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the celebrity publication wrote.

Trouble for Signore became public when Emma Bowers, a former intern who worked for him, went to Twitter last week to give a detailed story about her allegations, Deadline.com reported. April Dawn, a fan of Screen Junkies, followed with her own Twitter testimony on how Signore attempted to assault her on a number of occasions, the website stated.

The Wrap reported that a third woman, Devin Murphy, tweeted direct messages and an email that Signore allegedly urged her to dress up in a costume.

Defy Media made a statement, charging that they had taken the allegations against Signore seriously and took action by firing him.

Signore's firing came hours after The Weinstein Co. announced it had fired cofounder Harvey Weinstein after a New York Times investigation accusing the producer and studio executive of sexual abuse of actresses and employees, The Hollywood Reporter pointed out.

Bowers had said in her post Thursday that the Times investigation against Weinstein inspired her to speak out against Signore, The Hollywood Reporter stated.
