Percy Hynes White who plays Xavier Thorpe reportedly fired from Wednesday season 2 after Netflix investigated allegations of misconduct.
The hit show Wednesday on Netflix has been making waves ever since it was first released. The show follows the teenage years of Wednesday Addams as she navigates the ups and downs of growing up. With a star-studded cast including Jenna Ortega, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Luis Guzmán, the show has received critical acclaim for its dark and gothic style, as well as its intriguing plotline.
However, one of the show’s stars, Canadian actor Percy Hynes White, has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The 22-year-old actor, known for his roles in The Gifted and The Expanse, has been accused of sexual assault and abuse by multiple women. The alleged incidents took place when Hynes was between the ages of 17 and 20, and his accusers were between 13 and 16 years old. These allegations include sexual assault, abuse, manipulation, and throwing parties where women were allegedly invited with the intention of getting them drunk and high enough to have sex with them.
An anonymous insider at Netflix recently revealed that Hynes has been fired by the streaming giant and will not star in the second season of Wednesday. The source stated that Netflix became aware of the allegations and conducted an internal investigation, but ultimately what led to Hynes’ firing was his conduct with female cast mates.
“We take all allegations of misconduct seriously and conducted a thorough investigation into the matter,” said the anonymous insider. “Based on the findings of our investigation, we have decided to part ways with Percy Hynes White. We have zero tolerance for any form of harassment or abuse on our sets, and we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees and cast members.”
The allegations against Hynes are serious, and they have been widely reported in the media. In addition to the allegations of sexual assault and abuse, there has been a video that went viral showing Hynes, the young Canadian actor who plays Xavier Thorpe in the hit show, allegedly attempt to subtly grope the show’s star Jenna Ortega at a press event. In the video, Ortega looks physically uncomfortable and pulls herself away from Hynes.
It’s important to note that the authenticity of the video has not been confirmed by either Ortega or Hynes, and neither of them have publicly commented on the incident. However, it’s clear that the allegations against Hynes have had serious consequences for his career, and it remains to be seen how they will continue to play out in the public eye.
It’s worth noting that the allegations against Hynes have not been proven, and Netflix has not confirmed the claims made by the anonymous insider. It’s important to allow the legal process to take its course and to respect the privacy of all individuals involved. In the meantime, the allegations serve as a reminder of the importance of creating safe and inclusive workplaces, particularly in the entertainment industry, where power dynamics can often be uneven and abuse can go unchecked.
