Actor Joseph Gatt, who was seen in ‘Game of Thrones’, has denied allegations about him engaging in ‘online sexually explicit communication’ with a minor. He called the Los Angeles Police Department detectives' claims ‘horrifying’, according to Fox News.
In a statement on Twitter, Gatt wrote, "I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently leveled against me. They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless (sic).”
He continued, "I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this. I look forward to clearing my good name. Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media (sic)."
