Both played brothers there, and Masterson was removed from the third season of this sitcom after he was accused in 2017 of three rapes that allegedly occurred between 2001 and 2003. In 2019, four women have already filed lawsuits against Masterson and the Church of Scientology, alleging stalking and harassment to get them to drop their rape allegations.

In June 2020, a trial began in which Danny Masterson was accused of raping a 23-year-old woman in 2001, as well as 28- and 23-year-olds in 2003. The accusations were made on the basis of a three-year investigation. The actor pleaded not guilty, but if convicted, he could face up to 45 years in prison.

Ashton Kutcher, promoting his new film “At my place or at your place”, gave an extensive interview to the magazine “. During the conversation, he was asked about a colleague from the set, with whom he had a long-term friendship and a joint business. not true.

He recalls that when they started working on the set of “The Pink 70s.” it was Masterson who was the most experienced member of the cast and basically led the entire group:

He had one goddamn rule he kept telling us: Don’t do anything stupid, don’t f*** it up, because if you f*** it up, everybody’s going to get it.

He adds that he kept his friends and colleagues away from drugs and bad decisions. Now Kutcher does not hide the fact that it is difficult for him to follow the development of the Masterson case, if only because his colleague has a child who will one day read all reports about the accusations and the trial. But it also strongly emphasizes that it supports all people who have been victims of various types of assault and violence. Underlines:

Ultimately, I can’t know if he’s guilty. I’m not a judge. I’m not a jury. I’m not a prosecutor. I’m not a victim. Nor am I the accused. I have no space to comment on it. I just don’t know.

You need help?

Sexual violence is any unwanted sexual contact. UNICEF data shows that around 15 million teenagers between the ages of 15 and 19 have experienced this type of violence worldwide, but only 1 percent of teenagers turn to a professional for help. Research shows that 80% of rape victims develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

If you are a victim of sexual violence, you can get help by calling, for example, the “Blue Line” Telephone Clinic – 22 668 70 00 (7 days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) or the 24-hour hotline of the Women’s Rights Center – 600 070 717.
