Danny Masterson Fired From The Ranch by Netflix in Wake of Rape Allegations

....After facing increasing pressure to take some form of action, Netflix has fired The Ranch star Danny Masterson, effective immediately. The actor stands accused of raping four women in the early 2000s; the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Los Angeles Police Department continue to investigate the claims.

“As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” a Netflix spokesperson said Monday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”

On The Ranch, Masterson stars alongside fellow That ’70s Show alum Ashton Kutcher. Masterson exits the multi-cam series in the middle of production on the comedy’s third season. According to sources, Masterson’s character, Jameson “Rooster” Bennett, will continue to appear through the second half of Season 2 (dropping Dec. 15) as well as in an unspecified number of episodes in Season 3 before being written out.

Netflix’s decision comes just days after one of Masterson’s accusers confronted Netflix exec Andy Yeatman in public about the streaming giant’s silence with regard to the actor. Yeatman allegedly told the woman that the higher-ups at the company don’t believe Masterson’s accusers. (Netflix later called the exec’s comments “careless” and “uninformed.”)

Netflix’s inaction with Masterson sparked outrage and cries of hypocrisy after the company swiftly fired House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey for sexual misconduct. A petition demanding Netflix cancel The Ranch has gathered nearly 40,000 signatures.
Masterson also serves as an exec producer on The Ranch, although there’s no word if he will maintain the title. It’s also unclear how The Ranch will address Masterson’s absence, but it seems inevitable that another actor (or actress) will be brought in to fill the co-star void.



and another one gone..........?!


......One of Masterson’s accusers filed a police report in 2004 saying that she was raped in 2003, but the case didn’t move forward. The Los Angeles Police Department started an investigation in late 2016 after “three women have come forward and disclosed that they were sexually assaulted by Masterson during the early 2000’s,” LAPD said in a statement in March. The police referred the case to the district attorney in April of this year but no charges have been filed yet.

The allegations against Masterson, which he has repeatedly denied, have been frequently referenced in the past weeks in the context of revelations about Hollywood types accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault. A recent story in the Huffington Post implicated a Netflix executive who had been recently confronted by one of alleged Masterson victims.

The Masterson controversy has had another layer to it as he is a longtime member of the Church of Scientology, and at least three of the women who have accused him of rape also were Scientologists.......

It wasn't rape, he was just trying to purge the body thetans... RollingEyesSmiley5

More seriously, my guess is Harvey Weinstein's private detectives are small time compared to the what top Scientologists can muster.

If it was my daughter, he'd walk with a limp for the rest of his life.

I just read the story. I should not have said this. He denies it and there has been no litigation. They should wait til then to fire him.

It's tough because any level of abuse is heart-rending.

It takes a big man/woman/person to admit that! Congrats! I know how your feel, but you have to engage brain too!
