On Wednesday, star Percy Hynes makes a statement on the sexual assault allegations

Wednesday Star Percy Hynes White has responded to various allegations made against him, calling all claims “misinformation” in a statement.

In an Instagram story published on Tuesday (via diversity) Hynes White called the allegations leveled against him a “misinformation campaign” by someone Hynes White allegedly never met. Although he was not specific, he is likely referring to sexual assault allegations made against him earlier this year.

“Earlier this year, someone I’ve never met launched a campaign of misinformation about me online. Because of this, my family was doxxed and my friends received death threats,” Hynes White wrote in his story. “Photographs of underage me were used and examples of my role playing were presented as hateful.” My friend Jane was misrepresented as a victim and her attempts to clarify the matter were ignored. She gave me permission to include her in this message.”

Hynes White went on to call the rumors “false” and said he could not accept that there was anyone who portrayed him as “fanatical or criminally negligent about people’s safety”.

“The rumors are false. I cannot accept being portrayed as someone who is bigoted or who grossly neglects the safety of others. “These are unfounded, harmful allegations that can inspire suspicion in victims,” ​​Hynes White said. “It is very disturbing to know that this misinformation has angered people. I am truly grateful to everyone who stood by me and helped spread the facts. Please stop harassing my family, friends and co-workers. Thank you for taking the time to read this.”

At the beginning of January this year, a Twitter user claimed that Hynes White had attacked her at a party he was throwing in Toronto. The tweet also claimed that Hynes White had assaulted other women and that he and his friends routinely threw parties and donated alcohol and drugs to underage girls. The tweet has since been deleted but led to more stories coming out.

“He stalked my boyfriend who was 13/14 at the time, had sex with him, abused him and got him high,” the tweet said at the time. “The last time I knew they were having sex she was 16 and he was 20. He attacked me at one of those parties when I was too drunk and he cornered, pressured, several of my friends and attacked.”

Hynes White starred in the first season of Wednesday as Xavier Thorpe, a fellow student at Nevermore Academy and lover of Wednesday Addams (Jenna Ortega). Although fans have been asking for him to be removed from season two, it’s still unclear if he’ll return.
