The Face Of Television Is Quickly Changing As Rapists Are Weeded Out

America has seen a monumental shift in sexual misconduct tolerance in the workplace over the last couple of months.

Before the accusations with Harvey Weinstein, where he is said to have raped and sexually assaulted multiple women, it seemed men in power walked on water.

There was the occasional big name court case that showed a victim receiving justice despite how thick his wallet was, but more often than not that wallet got a little thinner, and everyone went about there business as usual.

Not anymore. Individuals looking to make any unwanted advances on another person better be ready to lose it all.

We see this in recent accusations against actor Danny Masterson, star of the Netflix hit show “The Ranch.”

Yahoo Entertainment reported:

After facing increasing pressure to take some form of action, Netflix has fired The Ranch star Danny Masterson, effective immediately. The actor stands accused of raping four women in the early 2000s; the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Los Angeles Police Department continue to investigate the claims.”

Since women, and respect for their boundaries, are being taken seriously more recently, it’s no surprise that women who have been brushed under the rug are now seeking rectification.

The Netflix hit “The Ranch” has racked in a whopping 9.54 million viewers, according to Business Insider.

 Masterson’s show has beat the popular Netflix original “House of Cards” in viewers, which is another acclaimed program that had to be drastically altered after sexual allegations against the star Kevin Spacey were made.

Yahoo Entertainment reported:

As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” a Netflix spokesperson tells TVLine. “[Monday] was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”

This wave of retribution that we are witnessing in the film scene, and beyond, is a positive reflection of American standards moving skyward.

There shouldn’t be a level of acceptable unwanted sexual advances. It seems that it was the standard that inappropriate behavior in the workplace was expected to a certain level.

The executives at Netflix have an obvious liberal agenda that promotes perversion; letting Masterson go was an obvious attempt at ducking any liability that may develop from legal action taken, and not a reflection of an enlightened conscience.

Now if they will only halt degrading and immoral programs from flourishing like the popular show “Big Mouth” that promotes all things wrong to young viewers. Check out the article “Disgraceful New Program And TV Host Who Promoted It Continue Entertainment Downward Spiral.

Standards for better or worse, are shifting all around the nation. It is nice to be able to say that there is at least one level of standard that is increasing.

Netflix was in a precarious position with Masterson because of a confrontation Netflix executive Andy Yeatman had in public with one of his accusers.

At a children’s soccer game, Yeatman “allegedly told the woman that the higher-ups at the company don’t believe Masterson’s accusers”, according to Yahoo.

Who, also, reported “Netflix later called the exec’s comments “careless” and “uninformed.”

The problem with Netflix’s attempt at an apology for Yeatman’s statement to the accuser is that it wasn’t said how the statement was untrue, just that he shouldn’t have said it.

This would lead one to believe the head honchos at Netflix did, indeed, not believe the accusations against Masterson.

Netflix seemingly wanted to wipe their hands clean of all associations with the media buzz of sexual allegations, because they quickly fired Yeatman as well.

Interestingly, 3 out of 4 of the rape accusations made against Masterson were women that attended the Church of Scientology, where he is an active member.

Fox News reported:

“Scientologist actor Danny Masterson has been accused of rape by four women — and the Church of Scientology claims it knew nothing of the allegations against its longtime member. 

 However, people deeply connected with the church say members did have knowledge of Masterson’s alleged behavior way before the media reports.

 Chris Shelton, a former member of the Church of Scientology and Sea Org from 1987-2012, said the church silences members who want to take complaints to law enforcement.”

 The women who attended the Church of Scientology with Masterson sought help from leaders in the church but were quickly turned away, according to Fox News.

Not only did the Church of Scientology fail to help, and give support, to these women who were abused and in distress, but they quickly sided with Masterson offering positive references and affidavits to the court on his behalf.

Masterson continues to fervently confess he is without a crime.

Fox News reported:

He has denied the claims against him, saying in part, “Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit. I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one.””

 Again, it is perplexing why the cries of innocence from Masterson only state that he was not “charged” with a crime, not that he didn’t commit one.

An open investigation is underway by the Los Angeles Police Department, according to Fox News, and we will see in the near future if any charges will accrue.

The post-Weinstein workplace is being slowly formed into a safer environment, where there will be no tolerance of sexual impropriety.

A total of, approximately, 42 men of influence and power have fallen from their golden thrones recently.

This could be the era of a new rule in Hollywood and political arenas, which crowns one for character and merit over how much money they rake in.
