Renowned reporter Bob Woodward has come under fire over his interview with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who investigated Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct, Vox reports.

Kantor and Twohey chose Woodward, one of the reporters to break the Watergate scandal in the 1970's, to host the Q&A at a synagogue in Washington, D.C., where they were promoting their book about the Weinstein investigation, "She Said."

Although Woodward "did stand up and hail them as tremendous journalists and said how remarkable their work and the book is, and he asked them questions about the investigative process," according to Vox’s Kainaz Amaria, "he also interrupted them quite a few times." 

Members of the audience reportedly began heckling Woodward, saying, "let them finish," when he interrupted them. His questions about the nature of Weinstein's actions also drew criticism. Woodward repeatedly asked why Weinstein allegedly harassed and assaulted women and refused to accept Kantor and Twohey's answers, which were that his actions were an abuse of power.

He reportedly asked, "So it's about power? It's about sex also, though, isn't it?"

At this point, Vox reports many audience members began booing, and some left the event.

Kantor and Twohey said in a statement to Vox: "We're just starting our book tour, and we're grateful to all the moderators — Bob Woodward, Katie Couric, America Ferrera and many others — who have agreed to join us onstage. We welcome all questions, from them and especially from the audience, because each one is an opportunity to relate the wrenching decisions that many of our sources had to make and grapple with #MeToo as an example and test of social change in our time."
