Netflix Will Continue Working With Danny Masterson Despite Rape Accusations

On Thursday, Nov. 2, Huffington Post revealed the case against Masterson had stalled even in the face of "overwhelming evidence," going on to detail the claims of four specific accusers — one of whom filed a report with the LAPD as recently as 2004. Furthermore, the Church of Scientology, of which Masterson is a member, seems to have played a major role in covering up the That '70s Show alum's crimes. As per the church's rules, members will be banned if they report a fellow member's crimes directly to the police, discouraging victims from speaking out.

"We are aware of the allegations and the subsequent investigation, and will respond if developments occur," a Netflix spokesman told HuffPost on Friday. Reportedly, the evidence against Masterson includes audiotapes, emails, and even a letter the actor wrote to one victim threatening her to keep quiet.

The streaming site's choice to continue working with Masterson comes as a surprise to some considering its recent promise to cut ties with Kevin Spacey.

Following a bombshell report from Buzzfeed published Sunday, Oct. 29 detailing Spacey's attempted molestation of Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp, the Oscar-winner has been fired from the set of House of Cards, his newest project, Gore, has been canceled, and he has been banned from any further work with Netflix.

Meanwhile, Masterson's The Ranch: Part 4 is slated to premiere some time in December 2017, and the actor and co-star Ashton Kutcher are reportedly filming Part 5 now.
