This isn't the first time Savage has faced misconduct allegations

In 2018 Fox comedy series "The Grinder" which starred Savage, levied assault and intimidation allegations against Savage, which he denied

Youngjoo Hwang, who worked as a costume designer, accused the actor/director of assault,  battery, gender discrimination and gender harassment.

Hwang reported the incident but was told not to pursue her complaint because "a lot of people would lose their jobs and I would never work in this industry again."
