Christina Ricci On Experience With “Awesome Guys” Who Are Abusers Amid Danny Masterson Sentencing & Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis Support Letters Backlash

Christina Ricci shared a statement on social media that many have taken to be a response to the Danny Masterson sentencing and the support letters his That ’70s Show co-stars, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis wrote.

“So sometimes people we have loved and admired do horrible things. They might not do these things to us and we only know who they were to us but that doesn’t mean they didn’t do the horrible things and to discredit the abused is a crime,” the Yellowjackets star shared on Instagram Stories.

She continued, “People we know as ‘awesome guys’ can be predators and abusers. It’s tough to accept but we have to. If we say we support victims — women, children, men, boys — then we must be able to take this stance.”

Ricci said that she has had personal experience with some of these “awesome guys” and made a call to support victims of abuse.

“Unfortunately, I’ve known lots of ‘awesome guys’ who were lovely to me who have been proven to be abusers privately. I’ve also had personal experience with this. Believe victims. It’s not easy to come forward. It’s not easy to get a conviction,” she added in a second post.

Kutcher and Kunis wrote character statements in support of Masterson as he awaited sentencing after being found guilty on two counts of rape.

“Not only is he a good friend to me I’ve witnessed him be a good friend to others and the kind of brother others would be lucky to have,” Kutcher wrote Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine Olmedo late last month.

After the sentencing of Masterson, the support letters were uncovered and backlash ensued which prompted the couple to release a statement apologizing.

“We are aware of the pain that has been caused by the character letters that we wrote on behalf of Danny Masterson,” Kutcher says in a video he shared on Instagram alongside his wife.

Kunis continued, “We support victims. We have done this historically through our work and will continue to do so in the future.”
