(RepublicanReport.org) – Since the explosion of the #MeToo social movement in 2017, the general public has learned a lot of uncomfortable truths about the so-called “elites” in our society. Dozens of rich and famous individuals from a range of backgrounds were exposed as engaging in inappropriate behavior, from harassment right up to serious sexual assault. Now, another well-known individual has been implicated in a sexual misconduct scandal.
On Tuesday, April 12, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) announced it had arrested 50-year-old actor Joseph Gatt on suspicion he had been having sexually explicit online interactions with a child. Agents with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, a law enforcement initiative of the LAPD’s Juvenile Division, executed a search warrant at Gatt’s residence in the early hours of April 6. Detectives then arrested the actor pursuant to a felony warrant against him for “Contact with a Minor for Sexual Offense.”
Gatt is most famous for his turn as Thenn Warg in HBO’s fantasy series “Game of Thrones.” He also appeared in “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Thor.”
