It’s been a bad week for the cast of That 70’s Show.
Last week, Scientologist Danny Masterson was convicted on two counts of rape that could send him to prison anywhere between 30 years and the rest of his life. The fallout from that event has seen letters of support from Kurtwood Smith, Debra Jo Rupp, and Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis, all of whom starred on the once hit show for Fox, surface online.
In a mind-numbing ramble, Kutcher & Kunis advocated for their friend by pointing out that he didn’t do drugs. Nancy Reagan would be proud.
The couple backtracked once the letter was seen by the general public, which means they blessed us with a truly awkward and uncomfortable apology video.
Clips from Kutcher’s past as a young star in Hollywood have began to resurface, notably his comments towards Hilary Duff in an episode of Punk’d.
And then there’s this, in which he explains a bet that he and Danny Masterson made when it came to kissing a then-14-year-old Kunis.
In the wake of this PR disaster, people online have gravitated towards championing Topher Grace, the lead of That 70’s Show who often felt like he was not a part of “the gang” that were friendly both on and off camera.
