Finn Wolfhard, the young star of Stranger Things, has fired his agent after allegations emerged that he may have sexually assaulted a number of male actors.

Tyler Grasham, who was also fired from his job as a talent agent at APA, was accused of sexual assault by a former teen actor.

'Tyler Grasham, under the pretense of a business meeting regarding potential agency representation at APA Agency, fed me alcohol while I was underage and sexually assaulted me.

Earlier in the week, Blaise Godbe Lipman (The Office, Weeds), accused Grasham of sexual assault that allegedly happened 10 years ago on Facebook.

Then, according to Lipman's account, Grasham - the unnamed perpetrator - "poked" him on Facebook.

'APA Agency has kept this man employed, working with kid actors. He got me drunk, etc etc etc. 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, ' Lipman said.

Those accusations were followed up later in the week by two other men, an actor and an editor, who claimed that the agent made unwanted sexual advances on them when interviewed by the paper.
