The NY Times reports:
On the sidelines of a children’s soccer game in Los Angeles this month, a Netflix executive reportedly told a woman that people at the company did not believe the rape allegations against Danny Masterson, an actor who was starring in the series “The Ranch.”I don't know the details, but I probably wouldn't believe it either if the police investigated and rejected the claims 15 years ago.
Andy Yeatman, the executive, did not know that the woman he was speaking to was one of several who had come forward to accuse Mr. Masterson of rape, HuffPost reported. Shortly after she revealed this, the conversation came to an abrupt end.
On Wednesday, Netflix confirmed that the executive, Andy Yeatman, no longer worked for the streaming service. ...
“Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit,” Mr. Masterson said in a statement. “I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.”
The paper also reports on The Race to Erase Kevin Spacey. This is creepy. Sony spent an extra $10M to unperson Spacey from a completed $40M movie. This is really sick.
