The Hollywood Reporter has an update on the Netflix executive who ran his mouth off at a youth soccer game earlier this month about the four rape allegations against Danny Masterson. Netflix director of global kids content Andy Yeatman claimed the higher ups at Netflix didn’t believe any of the allegations against Danny. It was also reported that Andy was condescendingly dismissive that Danny would suffer any repercussions. Little did Andy know that he was speaking to one of Danny’s accusers. Not long after the accuser came forward with her story, Danny was written off The Ranch. And now Danny is joined by Andy in the Former Netflix Employees Club.
THR says that Andy was fired on Monday. A Netflix spokesperson confirmed the news to THR on Tuesday. When reached by email for comment, Andy Yeatman had nothing to say. Nothing, huh? That’s odd, he seemed pretty damn chatty at that soccer game.
Netflix’s spokesperson didn’t say why Andy Yeatman was let go, but it definitely had to do with that smug public attitude regarding Danny’s rape allegations. There’s also the how, like how the firing happened. I’m obsessed with Undercover Boss, so I want to believe it happened after Netflix head honcho Reed Hastings stuck on a cheap moustache and caught Andy spouting more BS about their network. “Did you know that to save money, we pay the Stranger Things kids in Eggos?”
