Accused rapist Danny Masterson came out of hiding Wednesday to get lunch with his wife Bijou Phillips in California. Just eight days before Masterson surfaced, he was fired from his Netflix comedy series The Ranch. He was fired in response to rape allegations from multiple women.
In an interesting move, Masterson has taken to a look that makes him appear much more guilty for the crimes he is accused of. He got rid of his beard, but kept a handlebar mustache. Or maybe he’s just enjoying his unemployment.
His hair looked a little rough as well when he and his wife joined another gentleman for lunch.
Per Daily Mail:
Masterson has stayed largely quiet since news of his termination was revealed last week.
‘As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,’ a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement last Tuesday.
‘Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.’
Masterson continues to deny allegations that he violently raped four women, one of whom he was dating at the time.
‘I am obviously very disappointed in Netflix’s decision to write my character off of The Ranch. From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit,’ Masterson said in a statement.
‘I have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.’
So Masterson continues to deny the allegations from all four women. Three of the four accusers were fellow Scientologists at the time of the alleged assaults.
