In April 2021, a story in ''The Hollywood Reporter'' alleged numerous instances of abuse from Rudin towards employees, including throwing objects at employees, breaking a computer monitor on an employee's hand, and causing emotional abuse that is believed to have contributed to the suicide of a former assistant. Following the ''Hollywood Reporter'' allegations, Rudin announced that he would be "stepping back" from his Broadway, film, and streaming projects to "work on personal issues I should have long ago." On April 20, ''Variety'' reported that Rudin's name would be removed from a number of upcoming films, and that "Rudin's business relationship with A24, the indie studio where he produced such acclaimed films as ''Lady Bird'' and ''Uncut Gems'', was over."
