Roy *Price* was the Amazon exec who was pushed out amid accusations of
harrassment and sexism and being friends with Weinstein and one of the
claims is that he didn't respect women so female led shows got canceled
unfairly...despite the actual track record of Amazon having lots of
female led shows.
Roy Moore is the crazy Alabama GOP politician accused of child rape by
multiple women and twice thrown off the Alabama supreme court...and
likely to win the Senate election there in a month or so.

....with implications that he didn't support the show (or Z: THE
BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING) because they were female oriented shows. The
accusations seem pretty baseless. there are other questionable events,
though, like his pushing forward with his girlfreind's show (Amazon
eventually denied his ability to approve the project, so it got picked
up by Weinstein).
