You star Chris D'Elia is facing two more allegations of sexual misconduct.
According to a report from CNN, two women have alleged that the actor and comedian exposed himself to them and, in one instance, masturbated in front of them without their consent.
The accusations come from actress Megan Drust and a woman who wishes to remain anonymous.
Drust alleges that when she was 26, the actor exposed himself to her while she was in her car, and then began to masturbate.
She told CNN: "I was very confused because it just didn’t fit the moment. Then he took down his zipper and asked me to touch him and I said, ‘What are you doing? No.’ And because I wouldn’t touch him, he started to masturbate. I couldn’t believe it."
The second woman, who asked to remain anonymous, worked as a manager at a hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, and alleges that D’Elia once called her up to his room, before answering the door completely naked.
D'Elia is already facing allegations of sexual misconduct from five other women, who allege that the actor sent them sexual photos. Some of the accusers say they were underage at the time.
Responding to the accusations in a statement to TMZ, the actor said he "never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point".
"All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me," he said.
"That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who absolutely let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That's my fault. I own it. I've been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better."
