An actor who played a grandfather in Disneys LGBT+ inclusive TV show Andi
Mack has been fired for trying to hook up with a 13 year old boy.
Police reports indicate that actor Stoney Westmoreland sent sexually
explicit messages to somebody who he thought was a 13 year old boy online.
Queerty reports that it is not yet known whether the account was actually
that of a real 13 year old boy, or if it was set up by police.
Westmoreland allegedly asked the boy for sex, and also asked him for nude
photos. He reportedly then sent the boy nude photos of himself.
He also reportedly sent a car via a ride sharing app to the boy so he
could be brought to his location, at which point police arrested him.
Westmoreland has been charged with four counts of dealing in materials
harmful to minors and soliciting sex from a minor.
Disney fired Stoney Westmoreland
Disney responded to the arrest by releasing a statement, in which they
announced that he had been fired from his role on Andi Mack.
He will not be returning to work on the series.
Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of
employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will
not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third
season next week, the statement said.
Andi Mack has won much praise for featuring Disneys first openly gay
The second season of Andi Mack featured a gay plotline where Cyrus
develops feelings for a classmate before coming out.
Disney Channel was forced to pull the show from air in a number of
countries after outrage at the gay storyline.
Speaking to People, the shows star Joshua Rush said he sometimes feels
the pressure of the role.
He said: I feel the pressure, and I also dont.
Andi Mack: A groundbreaking TV show
I think the most important thing for me when I got this part was to do it
I knew that I wanted to do it justice, because I knew that people were
gonna end up seeing this and being like, Wow thats me, I identify with
that [and] I can be who I am now, but I also wanted to make sure that
its not all-encompassing. Like thats not all of Cyrus personality.
We put the work in, and I think it shows.
He added: Its important that everybody gets representation and that
anybody having thoughts on who they are is able to see that represented on
TV and to be shown thats okay.
I think Cyrus feels different, and I think in our teenage years we all
feel different at different times, so its important to show anyone that
Cyrus is comfortable with who he is and is happy with who he is.
I think this storyline is definitely going to help a lot of my peers.
Stoney Westmoreland has had minor roles in a number of TV shows and films,

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the

ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its
supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum
wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
