Gay Hollywood Agent Tyler Grasham Fired After Sexual Assault Allegations


Two men have have come forward and accused Tyler Grasham a talent agent at APA of sexually assaulting them. 

Via Deadline:

Former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman, 28, says agent Tyler Grasham assaulted him 10 years ago when he was seeking representation. “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,” he wrote Monday on Facebook. 

Lucas Ozarowski, a 27-year-old film and TV editor, says he also was assaulted by Grasham. He said he has contacted Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer with the story and will file a report with the LAPD today.

Lipman posted that the recent revelations about Harvey Weinstein gave him the courage to finally come forward with his story.

“The positive thing about the attention the Weinstein scandal has had, is it’s no longer about Harvey,” he wrote. “The conversation has moved on to the size of this epidemic and how to dismantle the system that protects these predators. And it’s given space and courage for victims to speak up, against their abuse. This is bigger than Weinstein.”

A spokesman for APA Agency confirmed the termination Friday. “Tyler Grasham’s employment has been terminated with APA effective immediately,” 

One employee noted that it “has been a hard few days at the agency,” but they are indeed trying to place Grasham’s clients with other agents inside APA.

Harvey Weinstein Threatens to Quit The MPAA After Unjust “R” Rating Given To ‘Bully’ Documentary – TRAILER

Harvey Weinstein, best known as co-founder of Miramax Films and now  co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company, is threatening to quit the MPAA after The MPAA gave his new film “BULLY” an “‘R” rating that would stop the movie could reaching the teen audience to which he was hoping the film would reach and educate about the dangers and consequences of teen bullying. 

EW reports that Weinstein appealed to the MPAA Rating Board along with one of the bullied children in the film, Alex Libby asking that the film be re-rated as “PG-13”. 

The board did not change the rating of the movie.

TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein and one of the bullied children in the film, Alex Libby delivered statements to the MPAA’s Classification and Rating Appeals Board today, arguing that an R rating would prevent “BULLY” from reaching the adolescent audience that would most benefit from the movie. (The studio was planning on screening the documentary at various middle and high schools.) However, for an MPAA rating to be overturned, a two-thirds vote is required — and Bully was one vote short.

Extremely disappointed Weinstein released a statement hinting that the MPAA has gone to far and the the The Weinstein company is considering leaving the organization.
