So apparently Kanye West’s return to Instagram was a Valentine’s Day-only special. Just like the heart-shaped boxes of chocolate that have been replaced by Peeps and bunnies at CVS, Kanye’s Instagram account has come and gone.
It seemed to happen at a much slower pace than some other alleged creeps, but more people are cutting ties with alleged rapist Danny Masterson. In December, Netflix announced there would be one less douche on the range because Danny had been written off The Ranch. And then it was like, okay, so where is Danny going to work now? Well, he’s going to have a little trouble with that. The Huffington Post says United Talent Agency has dropped Danny as a client after 20 years.
UTA commented on their decision by simply telling HuffPo: “UTA no longer represents Danny Masterson.” A source familiar with Danny’s relationship with UTA tells HuffPo that the decision to drop Danny was made a while ago and it probably has to do with him currently being under investigation after four women came forward saying he raped them.
Danny signed with UTA around the same time he booked That ’70 Show. Before that he was playing Alicia Witt’s boyfriend on Cybill and the boyfriend in Beethoven’s 2nd. Normally I would say he could knock on his old agency’s door and try to get those boyfriend roles again. But with his current alleged reputation, I’m not sure anyone is going to want to cast him as someone who takes women out on dates. It seems like the only person who hasn’t dropped Danny is Scientology. Don’t worry Danny, I’m sure they still love you very much….just as long as your checks don’t start bouncing.
Comedy Central’s The Gorburger Show is a fake talk show starring an ego-driven monster puppet named Gorbuger that’s voiced by T.J. Miller. Although now it’s a former fake talk show. The Hollywood Reporter says that Comedy Central has decided to cancel The Gorburger Show after one season, thus putting the ego-driven monster and the ego-driven monster who voices it out of a job. But Comedy Central says the cancellation has nothing to do with the recent allegations against T.J. Miller, of which there are now more.
On Monday, Eater published several stories by women claiming to have been sexually harassed and assaulted by Mario Batali. Mario admitted that he was guilty of being a huge creep, and ABC asked him to step away from his co-hosting duties on The Chew. In a move as predictable as Mario Batali showing up to an event in a sweat-soaked fleece vest, ABC has fired him from The Chew.
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?”
Danny Masterson should probably update his SuckedIn account (I’m assuming that’s Scientology’s LinkedIn) to say former star of The Ranch. Because according to Variety, he’s been fired.
