Vincent Cirrincione, a Hollywood manager for women like Halle Berry and Taraji Henson, is being accused of sexual misconduct by nine minority women, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: The women say Cirrincione "took advantage of...young women of color seeking an entry into Hollywood." He was viewed as an "important gatekeeper for black actresses," into an industry primarily white. Per the Post, six of the nine women say after their encounters with Cirrincione, they dropped their pursuit of acting careers or "took extended breaks."
