Danny Masterson Speaks Out After Netflix Firing, Denies Rape Allegations

Danny Masterson has released a statement after being written off of his Netflix show The Ranch amid four rape allegations against him.

“I am obviously very disappointed in Netflix’s decision to write my character off of The Ranch. From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit,” the 41-year-old actor told TMZ. “I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.”

Netflix released a statement earlier today indicating that Danny‘s character would be written off, and production on the show, which also stars Ashton Kutcher, will resume in 2018.

    the nerve of this POS! of course law enforcement stalled the case: is well known that the LAPD has $$$ ties with the cult. And of course you’ve denied to have raped 4 FOUR women. We weren’t expecting an admission you know? Legit journalists who have read the legal papers have said the evidence is compelling and overwhelming. FOUR women can’t be lying.

    I am very saddened today to hear the news of Danny Materson’s firing. I think its completely ridiculous that you should lose your job over something you havent even been charged with. Trust me i am a huge supporter of women standing up for themselves and my heart goes out to all true victims of any sexual crimes, but ive witnessed first hand both sides of it. While im happy for the change in certain aspects i dont like this new trend where people are having  their lives destroyed and losing their jobs on accustations alone. What happened to being innocent til proven guilty. Thats basically saying you can say anything you want about anybody and its automatically the truth. Ive personally have read all the accusations and the reports and i think the whole thing is ridiculous and without merit. Anyone can see this is a personal vendetta against Danny himself. I was actually really proud of Netflix in the beginning. Last week when the statement came out that brought it to everyones attention again that they hadnt done anything in regards his employment i really thought netflix was going to rise above and show they wouldnt just be bullied into firing someone because they want to be politically correct. The ranch was the first show i have come to love in a long time. It kills me that i wont see it again. I dont think i can stand by a company that cant stand by their own employees. I dont think ill miss anything anyway because the ranch is nothing without the Rooster. I really hope you keep your head up and i will be smiling with you when your name is cleared.
