Danny Masterson Went Rapin’ Down At The Ranch

Danny Masterson and Ashton Kutcher produced and starred in a Netflix show called The Ranch. It sounded terrible from the start, but Netflix is a sucker for old stars and ended up giving the show multiple seasons.

But Masterson will no longer be part of the show.

In the midst of everyone being accused of some type of sexual misconduct, Masterson was accused of rape. No one paid attention to the charges levied against Masterson because who the hell cares about Danny Masterson in 2017? Even Netflix didn’t bother to pay attention to the charges. They had bigger stories to worry about. Yes, we’re all looking at you, Kevin Spacey.

Now that the Spacey situation has been handled, Netflix circled back around to Masterson and decided that it’s probably not a good idea to have a man accused of rape starring and producing one of their original shows.

Masterson will appear in the episodes already filmed, but then he’ll disappear like Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men.

Here’s what Masterson said in a statement:

“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. 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. I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all.”

Dude, four women accused you of rape. You’re only innocent until proven guilty if it’s one woman. Two or more and you’re guilty until you admit the truth.

Masterson was accused of rape nine months ago, so it’s a little curious as to why they’re just now acting on his dismissal. I think it was just poor timing. No one cared if an actor raped someone nine months ago. We only started paying attention like three weeks ago. And, as I said, Kevin Spacey is a bigger name on a more popular Netflix show. And don’t say, “They could have handled both at the same time” because you obviously don’t know how Hollywood works. Give them more than one task at a time and they would rather jump off a bridge.

Masterson was being investigated by the LAPD over the charges and even said there was “overwhelming evidence”, but didn’t actually do anything about it. And people wonder why women don’t go to the police when this shit happens.

There are a lot of people at fault in this one. Masterson, obviously, for raping. Netflix, for not acting quicker. And Netflix users who keep watching The Ranch, for continuing to watch The Ranch.

    Yeah, because there’s no chance two or more are jumping on the victim bandwagon.
    MORE accusers and still ZERO proof?

    #MeToo is sounding like little more than “I want some of that attention, too”

      you know nothing about the proof they have, why you say zero proof? Legit journalists who’ve read the legal papers have said the evidence is overwhelming and compelling and it is inexplicable why the DA’s office didn’t proceed. If the LAPD went onto opening not one but FOUR investigations you can be sure that they considered the evidence enough. And yes, FOUR DIFFERENT women cannot be making up such horrible accusations, that’s such a BS excuse: statistically women making up allegations of rape are near inexistent. Is just the excuse of rapists. And for what? To bring attention to themselves and their families over what? Masterson is at best a talentless, irrelevant D lister in the Hollywood scene. None of the victims is searching the spotlight or attention: just justice. Throw Scientology and Marty *I-love-to-defend-rapists* Singer into this scenery and you don’t have to be a genius to see what’s going on. Also: innocent until proven guilty applies only to a court of law. Court of public opinion which is what matters to Masterson’s employer in the showbiz is absolutely a different thing. He is damaging Netflix’ image and as such Netflix has all the right to fire him. He’s just being fired, not condemned by the law. Is he still has trouble seeing the difference it speaks volumes of his ignorance of the legal system and it could even be considered as an of admission of wrongdoing.
