Danny Masterson Sexual Assault Allegations: The Netflix Hypocrisy?

Danny Masterson, star of Netflix Original “The Ranch” and formerly of “That ’70s Show”, has been accused by 4 women that he raped them in the early 2000’s. One of the victims is questioning Netflix as to why they are not taking action against Masterson and Andy Yeatman, director of global kids content, told her that Netflix did not believe the accusations. Netflix later released an official statement saying:

Mr. Yeatman’s comments were careless, uninformed and do not represent the views of the company. Further, he would have no insights into decision making on The Ranch. We are aware of the allegations against Danny Masterson and we are following the current investigation, and will respond if developments occur.

Netflix have reportedly been aware of the allegations since March this year when the LAPD were investigating the case. Earlier this year Kevin Spacey was the subject of sexual-assault allegations and he was suspended and then subsequently fired from his role in “House of Cards”. The question is being asked: why are Netflix still working with Masterson? An online petition has been set up to try to cancel “The Ranch”.

      1. Of course it still applies, even in this case. Accusations should not lead to trial by internet or social media. Any accusations should be dealt with in a court of law.

    1. Exactly. That’s an unpopular view though…all these men losing jobs over allegations is wrong. Only proves how stacked tge system is if a woman makes a claim. If they have proof press charges.
