Netflix issue a statement about one of its shows amid rape allegations
Netflix took to Twitter to make the statement.
Danny Masterson, former star of That 70s Show and current star of The Ranch, has been fired.
It has been reported that several women accused him of raping them in the early 2000s, and while suspicions have been mounting for years, it seems like some action will finally be made.
Netflix took to social media this afternoon to state that Danny Masterson has been fired from his role on The Ranch, in which he stars along side Ashton Kutcher, and he filmed his last episode yesterday.
After discussing with the producers, we've decided to write Danny Masterson off of The Ranch. Yesterday was his last day of work, and we'll make new episodes in 2018 without him.

It further stated that the series will go ahead without Mr Masterson in 2018.
This comes a day after the TV giant announced that the final season of House of Cards will go ahead without Kevin Spacey.
The Los Angeles Police Department released a statement earlier this year saying that they have started an investigation after “three women have come forward and disclosed that they were sexually assaulted by Masterson during the early 2000’s."
