They’re dropping like flies…
As we reported earlier this month, according to HuffPost, one of Danny Masterson‘s four rape accusers went up to Andy Yeatman — Netflix‘s director of global kids content — at a youth soccer match and asked why the entertainment company hasn’t acted on the allegations. Masterson was a star and producer for their show The Ranch.
Yeatman, unaware of the woman’s identity, responded:
“We don’t believe them.”
The streaming service later confirmed the exec made the aforementioned comment, and released a statement saying his words “were careless, uninformed and do not represent the views of the company.”
On Tuesday, the corporation officially fired Yeatman, according to The Hollywood Reporter sources. A Netflix representative confirmed the news by saying:
“Mr. Yeatman is no longer employed at Netflix.”
The axed employee declined to comment.
A day after Yeatman’s soccer match comments made news, Masterson was officially fired from The Ranch, and will be written off the show.
Later that day, the That ’70s Show alum said he was “disappointed” by the decision, and looks “forward to clearing my name once and for all.”
