Hoo boy, strap in for this one.
Welp, turns out there is something way worse than silence.
Yashar Ali, who’s been doing amazing work tracking this case for HuffPo, spoke to one of Masterson’s accusers. Her daughter plays on the same soccer team as Andy Yeatman, director of global kids content at Netflix, and at a game this weekend, she approached Yeatman and confronted him about his company’s lack of literally anything regarding the allegations against Masterson.
Victim B said she asked Yeatman why Netflix was not taking action against Masterson in light of the district attorney’s investigation and the multiple accusations of rape. According to Victim B and another witness, Yeatman said Netflix takes sexual misconduct allegations seriously but that “we don’t believe them,” referring to Masterson’s four accusers.
Victim B told HuffPost she never expected Yeatman to say such a thing and was left stunned. She said she then told him, “I’m one of them,” indicating she was one of Masterson’s accusers.
The conversation ended quickly.
Yup, yeah, I’m sure it did.
Netflix actually responded to this one quite quickly, shock and awe of shocks and awes, confirming that Yeatman did make these “careless” and “uninformed” comments, but only because he didn’t know she was one of Masterson’s accusers, because otherwise the comments would have been super chill I guess?
The Ranch is still set for return on December 15. Good thing they’re keeping all 13 of its viewers happy.
