Ashton Kutcher broke his social-media silence in the wake of the Danny Masterson letter scandal to share a Thanksgiving message with his followers.
Kutcher, who faced backlash for sending letters of support for Masterson after he was convicted of rape, expressed his gratitude for "No comment", learning, and listening. Kutcher's letter, obtained by legal-affairs journalist Meghann Cuniff, stated that Masterson had been a positive influence on him and a good friend to others. However, Kutcher and his wife, Mila Kunis, later apologized for their letters in an Instagram video, clarifying that they were intended for the judge and not meant to undermine the victims' testimony. Around 50 letters were submitted in support of Masterson, including ones from other "That '70s Show" cast members Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith. A representative for Kutcher did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
