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

Tyler Grasham had been put on leave on Wednesday while APA talent agency investigated allegations of sexual assault, which first came to light after filmmaker and ex-child star, Blaise Godbe Lipman, shared a letter to Facebook and Instagram on Monday as part of the #MeToo campaign.

Meanwhile, Blaise Godbe Lipman posted on Facebook his appreciation of everyone who supported him in speaking out against Grasham. According to TheWrap, Wolfhard was Tyler Grasham's biggest client, but the actor is no longer signed with him or the Agency for the Performing Arts.

"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, ' he said in the post. Two men have come forward accusing Grasham of sexual assault, which you'll know is something taken very seriously these days if you've been watching the news.

APA is reportedly launching an internal investigation in Grasham, who has represented Wolfhard across his career. A day later, he took to Facebook again writing that after his initial post, his abuser had sent him a "poke" message on Facebook.

Finn Wolford, a 14 years old actor, has parted ways with the talent agency APA after been informed about the sexual allegations against his agent. "But I didn't want to discourage him because of the [career] ramifications".
