Danny Masterson the critics criticized Netflix for the airing of “The Ranch” with the actor, despite his being fired from the series last year after rape allegations.
Danny Masterson’s rape accusers criticized Netflix on Friday for the airing of “The Ranch” episodes, which feature the actor, who was fired after the allegations.
The last season of “The Ranch” hit Netflix on Friday. It includes masterson’s character, Rooster Bennett’s, as he departs from the show. Chrissie Carnell Bixler, one of masterson’s accusers, told the Daily Beast it’s a shame that Netflix is airing the episodes that feature the old Scientologist.
“We get it, Netflix. You don’t believe. You rub salt in our wounds,” Bixler wrote in a statement to the Daily Beast. “Danny Masterson co-executive producer of ‘The Ranch’? You knew that you had to fire him, but you do a lot of reshoots, so that you can us rapist’s storyline up and give him a respectable send-off. And there he is on TV in the new season.”
She added that Masterson should have been fired on the spot,” the Kevin Spacey was discharged from the Netflix series “House of Cards” following allegations of sexual misconduct.
“Kevin Spacey? Shot on the spot. The production stopped. Ed Westwick? Louis C. K.? Are there any active investigation of these suspicious men? Do you just not believe us? Do you agree with Jenni Weinman [masterson’s publicist] and the Church of Scientology if they say that you cannot rape your wife or girlfriend? Are you afraid of Scientology’s Fair Game?”

Masterson is a lifelong member of the church of Scientology. Three of the four women who accused Masterson are members of the church of Scientology, according to several reports. The Church of Scientology reportedly tried to cover up the allegations against Masterson.
Bobette Riales, another prosecutor, told the Daily Beast they think that Masterson should have been taken out of the air as Spacey and Louis C. K.
“For Netflix to have taken such stern response and action with regard to Kevin or Louis, and then also the firing of Danny and… Why now, she continues to support in a half-ass way as a co-producer, which means he still gets a check, and also broadcast shows after he was fired?” she said.
In December, Netflix has announced that Masterson was written from “The Ranch” due to the allegations. Masterson said he was “very disappointed at Netflix’s decision to write my character off of ‘The Ranch.'”

“From day one I have been denied the scandalous allegations against me. I have never been prosecuted, let alone convicted,” he said. “In this country, you are presumed innocent until the contrary is proven. However, in the current climate, it seems like you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused. I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all.”
Netflix did not immediately say if Masterson would continue his executive producer credit on the show.
The Los Angeles Police department has its investigation into allegations of rape against Masterson since January, and news of the probe went public in March 2017.
