A Twitter user named @milkievich started the allegations saying White and his friends allegedly would invite women who would look attractive. After inviting them, they would have intercourse with them. As this woman came out and spoke up about it, others soon joined her, sharing their own experiences as well.
Reportedly, this behavior of the Canadian actor continued until he was 17 and older. Not only this, the young actor would share his naked pictures online without consent. Those who have suffered these issues now want the actor out of Wednesday. Although White has turned off the comments on his posts, a short clip of him from the show has resurfaced. In the clip, he is seen using racial slurs.
