Going back to the 311 number i mentioned a couple pages back. Alphanumerically 311 is CAA. A quick search brings up a few things but one caught my eye, Creative Artists Agency, which is linked to A-list stars, and Harvey Weinstein . ..
In December 2017 there were reports that the agency was actively involved in coverups relating to abuse and harassment by disgraced Miramax executive Harvey Weinstein. Variety, citing a report in The New York Times, reported that at least eight agents knew about the ongoing harassment yet continued to do business with Weinstein, and even sent actresses to meet with him in situations where they might have been vulnerable to his predations. Actress Uma Thurman accused the agency of being connected to Weinstein's predatory behavior.
To market themselves, talent agencies often cater exclusive parties following awards ceremonies such as the Golden Globes. In 2013 CAA threw a party at the Sundance Film Festival which caused embarrassment and a public relations backlash, where "guests mingled with lingerie-clad women pretending to snort prop coc aine, erotic dancers outfitted with sex toys and an Alice in Wonderland look-alike performing a simulated sex act on a man in a rabbit costume."
