Netflix says they will continue to work with Danny Masterson despite the mounting allegations of rape against him according to a report from The Washington Post. At the moment, Masterson produces and stars in the Netflix-created series, The Ranch.
On the second of November, Thursday, Huffington Post opened up the case against the That 70’s Show alumni in the face of “overwhelming evidence” involving four different women who have filed reports against him as recently as 2004.
Additionally, The Church of Scientology, which Masterson partakes in, allegedly played a vital role in “covering up” Danny’s past crimes.

According to Zimbio, if a member commits a crime, no individuals can report another person’s sins in the church to the Police which discourages victims from coming out with accusations.
A spokesperson for Netflix said they were “aware of the allegations” as well as the investigation and will issue a response if more information hits the mainstream.
Zimbio states that some of the evidence against Masterson includes audio recordings, emails, as well as a letter that he wrote to a victim which threatened her to stay silent.
Netflix has found itself at the center of controversies in recent weeks due to Anthony Rapp’s allegations against the Oscar winner, Kevin Spacey.
The public finds the scenario confusing considering Netflix decided to get rid of Kevin and disassociate themselves from him, but not Masterson.
As you may already know, BuzzFeed published a news report regarding Spacey’s alleged crimes on the 29th of October, on Sunday. Since then, many people have come out with similar allegations including things like groping and making “unwanted sexual advances.”
As a result of the scandal, Kevin is permanently banned from working on any Netflix production. However, Masterson’s production, The Ranch: Part 4, is still airing on the platform.
