Former “That ’70s Show” actors Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have issued apologies in response to online criticism after they wrote letters of support for their co-star Danny Masterson, who was recently found guilty of rape. In a video shared on Ashton Kutcher’s Instagram account, the married couple clarified that their intention was to support Masterson as someone they had known for 25 years and not to question the judicial system or harm the victims.

Kunis emphasized that the letters were meant for the judge’s consideration and not to retraumatize the victims. They expressed regret if their actions had inadvertently caused harm to anyone.

Their apology video was posted a day after the support letters became public. In these letters, Kutcher described Masterson as a “role model,” while Kunis praised him as an “amazing friend” and a positive influence in her life.

Despite the apology, the couple continues to face criticism online for their initial support of Masterson. In the video, they affirmed their support for victims of sexual assault, referencing Ashton Kutcher’s involvement in combating human trafficking and child exploitation through his foundation.

Danny Masterson, who was charged with sexually assaulting three women in 2020, was found guilty of raping two women in a recent trial. He received a 30-year to life prison sentence. The victims alleged that the Church of Scientology, of which Masterson and the victims were members, protected him and prevented them from reporting the assaults to the police.

Kutcher and Kunis’ letters were written after Masterson’s guilty verdict and before his sentencing. They were among more than 50 individuals, including other “That ’70s Show” stars Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, who wrote support letters to the judge.
