Danny Masterson Ousted from Netflix show, 'The Ranch' Actor Denies Rape Claims

Danny Masterson Ousted from Netflix show, 'The Ranch' Actor Denies Rape Claims

On Monday, the Huffington Post reported one of Masterson's alleged victims had confronted a Netflix executive about the actor at a children's soccer game, but that the executive had told her that company officials did not believe the women's claims. Currently, it's unclear if another actor will be brought in to fill the void Masterson's firing has left behind.

Part four of "The Ranch" is set to premiere on Netflix as scheduled December 15, with additional episodes slated to premiere some time in 2018.

Netflix has fired Danny Masterson from The Ranch after facing intense backlash for its ongoing relationship with the star, who has been accused of raping multiple women.

'Her claims coming after nearly 16 years were surprising and shocking to say the least, ' said Jenni Weinman at the time. After executives for the company claimed they didn't believe the claims against Masterson, the company finally confronted the allegations and made a decision to fire the actor. No!" she said. "I'm going to be an awesome woman who will NOT shut my mouth when I find out my rapist raped countless other women. We DO matter. We ARE important. Masterson stands accused of raping four women, and the LAPD and LA County DA say that they're still investigating the matter.

We're definitely curious to see how this whole thing plays out.

Defensively, Clemson football yields 3.0 points and 120.0 total yards (1.0 in passing and 119.0 in rushing) per game. Ohio State finished the season 11-2 after beating No. 4 Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game Saturday night.

A petition on Care 2 calling for Netflix to cancel the show had more than 38,000 supporters.

Worth nothing though is that Masterson's onscreen exit from The Ranch won't be immediate.

Many thought Masterson should have been fired from the show immediately following the claims against him, similar to how Netflix cut ties with Kevin Spacey and Louis C.K. after the news hit about their own sexual misconduct scandals. Two and a Half Men alums Don Reo and Jim Patterson serve as showrunners alongside Kutcher. Also unresolved is the fate of Masterson's executive producer credit on the series. His That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher also starred alongside him on The Ranch.

Masterson is repped by UTA.
