'Stranger Things' Star Takes Action Against Sexual Assault Allegations In Hollywood

As a result, Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard made the bold, and proactive move to fire his agent due to the seriousness of these allegations.

APA, the agency Grasham worked for, has released a statement saying: "APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter". "The agency said it has a neutral, independent investigator looking into the allegations, and that it is company policy not to discuss confidential personnel matters", said an official of the APA agency.

Canadian child actor Finn Wolfhard, 14, known for his role as Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series 'Stranger Things, ' parted ways with the agent and the company all together this week after the claims surfaced.

As reported by E Online, earlier this week former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman posted the allegations against the agent on Facebook. Film and TV editor Lucas Ozarowski, 27, was one of those who told The Hollywood Reporter that Mr Grasham sexually assaulted him at his home in January past year.


Grasham allegedly organised a smear campaign in order to "out" the actor (Lipman, who is gay, wasn't out at the time of the incident) "I didn't do anything at the time".

APA has terminated agent Tyler Grasham from the agency following numerous accusations of sexual abuse and harassment from several men who have spoken out on social media this week. Deadline also spoke to another man who came forward with a similar allegation against Grasham. Although my initial reaction yesterday and today was to not make this about me, there's no better time. "Tyler Grasham, however, is most definitely fired".

He added: 'We were at his apartment when he got on top of me and fondled me. In the meantime, Grasham has reportedly set his Instagram account to private, while deleting his Facebook page. "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications".
