'Stranger Things' Star Fires Agent After Sexual Assault Allegations Surface

'Stranger Things' Star Fires Agent After Sexual Assault Allegations Surface

Stranger Things and It star Finn Wolfhard has parted ways with his agency following sexual assault allegations made against his agent, Tyler Grasham. 

Wolfhard and Descendants star Cameron Boyce both fired Grasham following the sexual assault claims made against him. 

Grasham has since been fired from his agency, APA.

The allegations against Grasham were made by a former client as a result of participating in the #MeToo movement. 

Blaise Godbe Lipman of Weeds and Hawaii Five-0 claimed he was assaulted by a "prominent talent agent from the firm APA" when he was just 17 years old in his #MeToo statement. He didn't name any names until later.  
According to Lipman, after he came forward, Grasham "poked" him on Facebook. Lipman then wrote a second post that named Grasham as his attacker.

 And Lipman wasn't alone. 
A second actor, Lucas Ozarowski, came forward with his own account of assault at the hands of Grasham shortly after Lipman did, and he posted screenshots of inappropriate text messages he'd received from Grasham. 

Many fans expressed their support for Wolfhard's decision to fire Grasham. 

The allegations against Grasham came just two weeks after The New York Times published their explosive allegations against Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein. Celebs have been calling on mento add their voices to the movement, and the call to action definitely seems to be working. 
What do you think about Wolfhard's decision? COMMENT and let us know.
