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.

Blaise Godbe Lipman, who appeared on the shows Weeds and Hawaii Five-O, wrote a Facebook post describing "a prominent talent agent from the firm APA" who assaulted him a decade ago, when he was 17.

"Lipman took to Facebook to share a story of being allegedly assaulted by Grasham, writing: "[he] fed me alcohol while I was underage and sexually assaulted me.

"I told him "no" at a certain point, [because] he got a little too physical", Lindsey said.

Agency has kept this man employed, working with kid actors.

"We denounce this conduct in any form, and our sadness and support for the victims who have courageously come forward can not be understated".

Ozarowski also shared screenshots of an alleged conversation with Grasham, where the agent seems to admit to "groping" the filmmaker and repeatedly hits on him, not stopping even after being asked to multiple times.

He posted to his Facebook that he had experienced sexual abuse at the hands of a Hollywood agent.

"I didn't know who he was". He said he was a big-time agent in L.A. and he worked at APA, ' Lindsey said.

"Tyler Grasham's employment with APA has been terminated effective immediately", Manfred Westphal, APA's head of communications, told the Los Angeles Times.

APA would not comment, other than the statement they have already put out: "APA takes these allegations extremely seriously and is investigating this matter".
