Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard has drawn attention to a sexual assault scandal that may otherwise have gone unnoticed after leaving his agency.

A Hollywood agent who represented many young clients like Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things and Cameron Boyce of Disney's Descendants franchise has been fired from his agency after sexual assault allegations surfaced.

It has been reported today that Tyler Grasham has now been fired from APA over the allegations.

Grasham, who had been repping Wolfhard, is being accused of assaulting former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman 10 years ago when he was looking for representation. "I find it incredibly hard to believe they do not know of his predatory behavior, using his position within the company to prey on naive kids".

On Monday, Lipman wrote on Facebook recounting the alleged sexual assault he was a victim of as a teenager. He got me drunk, etc etc etc.

At least two other men - an editor and actor - have since come forward with stories of more recent unwanted sexual advances and harassment by Grasham.
