Following allegations of violent sexual assault, Netflix has dropped actor Danny Masterson from its series The Ranch, a spokesperson for the company said Tuesday.
The news was first reported by Huff Post."As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch," a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement provided to Buzz Feed News Tuesday morning.
However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused."Los Angeles police confirmed to Buzz Feed News in March that Masterson had been under investigation by the department and the district attorney's office for nearly a year over allegations that he violently raped four women in the early 2000s."I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all," the actor said in his statement.
"In the meantime, I want to express my gratitude to the cast and crew that I’ve worked so closely with over the past three seasons. I am also so thankful to the fans that have supported me and continue to do so.”Now 41 years old, Masterson played Steven Hyde on the hit series That '70s Show which ran from 1998 to 2006.
“Last thing I remember is getting up from the restaurant to go home. “The next day when I woke up the back of my head hurt, and I thought I’d fallen. I was completely disconnected.” As Bixler spoke to Remini, Marie Bobette Riales, another plaintiff in the case against Masterson, sat in the audience.
In an interview recorded on April 10, 2017, Chrissie Bixler, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Masterson who dated him from 1996 to 2001, recalled going to dinner with Masterson in the late ’90s, drinking a glass of wine, and blacking out. “I was to lay there and take it.”“When we met, I was the successful one. When [Masterson] booked his first show, he made me stop working."Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him."Masterson said in a statement that he is "obviously very disappointed in Netflix's decision.""From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me," he said, adding that law enforcement investigated the claims more than 15 years ago and "determined them to be without merit.""I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one," Masterson said in his statement."In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.In legal proceedings, the Church denied that Gil was abused or forced into auditing. ’ He said, ‘Yeah.’”Bixler claimed she told an ethics officer at the Church, who told her to stop calling it rape, because they had been in a relationship, and that she had done something to deserve it.But his story bears similarity to that of Joey Chait, another former Scientologist who was raised in the Church and claimed he was also forced into auditing as an adolescent and had a similar experience. In one of our sessions, he began to tell me about one of the times when he committed the sin of molesting his five-month-old niece,” Chait said. The officer allegedly also told Bixler that if she reported the rape, she could be declared a “Suppressive Person,” meaning she’d be kicked out of the Church.
