France is reportedly considering stripping longtime Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of the state's highest civilian distinction award, the Legion of Honor, amid ongoing sexual harassment allegations.

Then-president Nicolas Sarkozy had given the Legion of Honor to Weinstein in 2012, after "The Artist", which Weinstein distributed and campaigned for, won five Oscars.

Macron in a televised interview said that, "I have taken steps to revoke the Legion d'Honneur from Weinstein". Therefore, Macron says he wants to speed up the legal procedures for investigating and prosecuting sexual harassment.
