Danny Masterson best known for his role in ‘That 70’s Show’ has been fired from his role on ‘The Ranch’ on Netflix.

He has been married to actress Bijou Phillips since 2011, the couple have a young daughter.

Masterson has been on the show ‘The Ranch’ since it premiered on ‘Netflix’ three seasons ago. He was reunited with his former costar from ‘That 70’s Show’ Ashton Kutcher who also stars on the show. Masterson released a statement to CNN about his termination.” 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 allegations 15 years ago and found them to be without merit.”

The actor continued,”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 you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused. I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all. In the meantime, I want to thank the cast and crew that I have worked so closely with over the last three seasons. I wish them nothing but success. I am also so thankful for the fans that have supported me and continue to do so.” Masterson’s character ‘Jameson Rooster Bennett’ will be written out of the show, the actor was fired on Monday from Netflix. The show will resume filming in early 2018 without Masterson.
