Netflix Fires Exec Who Allegedly Dismissed Danny Masterson Rape Accuser

The former That '70s Show star was hit with allegations for rape by four women back in March (17), and Netflix bosses came under pressure to fire him from their sitcom The Ranch after they sacked Kevin Spacey from House of Cards following allegations of sexual abuse in November (17). No new charges have been filed against the actor, but Masterson was previously investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for these accusations in the early 2000s. The actor has denied the claims.

The firing follows a report by the Huffington Post - which detailed the interaction between the exec and the accuser in LA, in which Yeatman reportedly told the woman, "We don't believe them", before she responded, "I'm one of them".

The conversation ended shortly after he learned that the woman was among those accusing Mr. Masterson, but Mr. Yeatman reportedly approached her about an hour later to clear the air.

Bixler and others claim that Masterson is using the Church of Scientology, which he is a member of, as a crutch against the sexual assault allegations.

On Dec. 4, HuffPost published the account of an anonymous Masterson accuser - referred to as "Victim B" - who says that she met Yeatman at a soccer game in Los Angeles. "We are aware of the allegations against Danny Masterson and we are following the current investigation, and will respond if developments occur".

This brings us to the soccer match earlier this month, during which Yeatman managed to dismiss the stories of Masterson's accusers-to the face of one of those accusers. As of this week, Yeatman has also been let go, about which Netflix has only said, "Mr. Yeatman is no longer employed at Netflix". Masterson will still be featured in the second half of Season 2 and parts of the third season that were already filmed. We will see justice for what was done to us, and is continuing to be done to us. and for all those who knew/know and are either actively helping this serial rapist or are choosing to stay silent.

Masterson, 41, has denied the allegations against him, and has said that all encounters were consensual.

'I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one.
