Before his Wonder Years firing, Fred Savage previously settled a The Grinder lawsuit in which his accuser alleged he "violently struck" her on set
Savage's firing from The Wonder Years reboot last week after multiple complaints of inappropriate behavior marked the third time and third different show that the former child star was accused of misconduct. In 1993, costume designer Monique Long sued Savage and his Wonder Years co-star Jason Hervey and the show's producers for sexual harassment, alleging they verbally and physically harassed her daily on set. The lawsuit was settled out of court. In 2018, Youngjoo Hwang sued Savage for harassment, assault, battery and discrimination on the 2015-2016 Fox comedy The Grinder. Savage settled the lawsuit out of court. Asked by Page Six about the new allegations, Hwang's attorney Anahita Seda said Monday: “This was a long time coming and I am not the least bit surprise. When my client came to me in 2018 with her allegations against Mr. Savage, we discovered that there was at least one lawsuit that had been filed against him in the past and that Mr. Savage had allegedly engaged in this type of behavior not just towards my client but other women as well. It is unfortunate that it took my client speaking out and now reportedly these others before action was finally taken.” Hwang alleged in her lawsuit that Savage “violently struck” her in the arm three times and yelled "Do not touch me with your hands!" after she brushed dandruff off of his suit and that the actor had a “volatile and aggressive temper as it related to the female crew.” Hwang also alleged there were numerous complaints against Savage over the years. “Defendant Savage was known to intimidate, bully and torment female crew members while they were doing their job duties by yelling things like ‘I’m not a dog, quit f*cking following me!’ ‘Don’t ever even f*cking look at me anymore’, and ‘Get the f*ck away from me,'" according to the original lawsuit. Savage has yet to respond to the new allegations.
News that Fred Savage was reportedly "quick to anger" has surfaced a week after he was fired from executive producing and directing ABC’s reboot of "The Wonder Years." Sources that worked alongside Savage told People magazine that the director was "quick to anger," which took a toll on the people working with him. Savage is facing allegations of misconduct while on set of the ABC show.
