Netflix fires exec who said Masterson accusers weren't believable

From Engadget - December 13, 2017

The Netflix employee who made the statement was Andy Yeatman, Netflix's director of global kids content. He coaches his daughter's youth soccer team and two weekends ago, his team was playing against one on which a daughter of one of Masterson's accusers plays. During the game, the victim approached Yeatman, asked him if he worked for Netflix and when he said he did, asked him why the company had not done anything in response to the multiple accusations made against Masterson, who stars on the Netflix show The Ranch. Yeatman told the woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, "we do not believe them," referring to the accusers. The victim then told him that she was one of the accusers.

Later, Netflix released a statement saying, "Mr. Yeatman's comments were careless, uninformed and do not represent the views of the company. Further, he would have no insights into decision making on The Ranch. We are aware of the allegations against Danny Masterson and we are following the current investigation, and will respond if developments occur."
