In Netflix's announcement, Netflix said that "as a result of ongoing discussions" the decision was made to write out his character. Allegations against Masterson were brought to the attention of Netflix executives, at least one of whom reportedly said this weekend that he did not believe the accusers.

"While he was coaching a youth soccer match today, Mr. Yeatman - a Netflix kids' programming executive - was approached by a stranger who did not identify herself or explain her connection to Danny Masterson", the statement read. One of the women reported the attack to the LAPD in 2004, but the case was closed after some of Masterson's fellow congregants in the Church of Scientology disputed the woman's claims.

Then in November, amid the sexual abuse scandals of other celebrities, Netflix started to get backlash for not doing anything about Masterson in spite of multiple accusations of rape against him. Netflix subsequently released a statement calling Yeatman's comments "careless" and "uninformed", and said that they didn't represent the position of corporate brass as a whole.
