Actor Danny Masterson, best known for his work in That ’70s Show, has been fired from Netflix amid allegations of rape from several women.
He’s been working on an original Netflix comedy series The Ranch, however on Tuesday the streaming giant released a statement saying Masterson will not return in 2018.
“As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of The Ranch,” the statement from Netflix reads, as reported by Variety.
“[Monday] was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”
Four women have accused the actor of rape and their allegations are currently being investigated by the Los Angeles County District Attorney and Los Angeles Police Department.
The first alleged victim to speak out said she was 16-years-old when Masterson allegedly raped her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
She made her allegations public via the docu-series from producer Leah Remini on Scientology and the Aftermath, implying the religion had a role in covering up Masterson’s alleged crime.
Masterson and his actress wife Bijou Phillips are Scientologists.
