Netflix Exec Let Go After Writing Off Rape Accusations Against Danny Masterson

The woman's husband had reportedly told her that Yeatman was a Netflix executive, and she reportedly asked Yeatman why Netflix hadn't taken any action against Masterson, who is now under investigation for the allegations, but has not been charged with any crime. The report anonymously cited "Victim B", who claimed Yeatman told her "we don't believe" the rape allegations against Masterson after she asked him why Netflix hadn't taken action. The woman didn't identify herself as one of Masterson's alleged victims when she first approached Yeatman. Victim B said she told him that she and the other alleged victims were telling the truth and added, "Netflix is going to regret this, this is a mistake, they're going to see". We'll see, indeed. A Netflix spokesperson confirmed Yeatman's dismissal with THR, saying, "Mr. Yeatman is no longer employed at Netflix".

Just weeks after Danny Masterson left The Ranch amid reports of sexual assault allegations, Netflix has reportedly made another move that shows they take these claims seriously.

The day after Yeatman's conversation was reported, Netflix announced that it had fired Masterson from "The Ranch", a series co-starring Ashton Kutcher about a dysfunctional family on a ranch in Colorado.

The streamer has since fired Masterson from The Ranch and now Yeatman has followed the actor out the door.

The news of Yeatman's firing follows a HuffPost piece from December 4, where an anonymous Masterson accuser claimed she met Yeatman at a soccer game in Los Angeles and proceeded to ask him why Netflix hadn't handled the accusations against Masterson. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the LAPD investigated multiple sexual assault allegations against Masterson from the early 2000s.

The report's findings are based on interviews with 72 refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants in Italy and Tunisia, as well as meetings with Libyan officials.

The pair did not speak again until after the match, as Yeatman was coaching his daughter's team while the victim's husband was the coach of the opposing squad.

"I am obviously very disappointed in Netflix's decision to write my character off of The Ranch", he said in a statement responding to his firing.

He will still appear in the second half of season two, which is due to be released on the streaming service on Friday. Masterson has denied the allegations.

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