Four women have accused Masterson of rape.
Four women have accused Masterson of violently raping them in the early 2000s. Masterson has been under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for just under a year.
On Monday, Netflix came under fire when it confirmed to the Huffington Post that Andy Yeatman, its director of global kids content, made “careless” and “uninformed” comments saying he did not believe the women who were accusing Masterson of rape. An accuser told the Huffington Post that she confronted Yeatman at a youth soccer game and asked him why Netflix was not taking action against Masterson and he said, “We don’t believe them,” referring to the accusers. The woman said she then told Yeatman that she was one of them and began to cry, saying, “I hope no one ever says that to your daughter.”
In November, Netflix severed ties with Kevin Spacey after multiple accusers alleged that he sexually assaulted them. On Monday, Netflix announced that “House of Cards” with continue without Spacey.
