Amy Schumer mocks Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis for their controversial Danny Masterson support letters

The comedian has called out Kutcher and Kunis over their letters about Danny Masterson

Amy Schumer called out Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis in a social media post over the recent revelations that they provided Danny Masterson with character references for his trial.

Masterson was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty on two charges of raping women, while the jury were unable to deliver a verdict on a third count over an allegation that he raped a girlfriend.

Part of the evidence presented at Masterson's trial included character references from Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

Kutcher said that Masterson 'instantly became a friend, dedicated co-worker, and role model' when they met in 1998, and that the now convicted double rapist was 'an extraordinarily honest and intentional human being'.

The actor went on to write that he didn't recall Masterson ever lying to him and wrote: "I do not believe he is an ongoing harm to society and having his daughter raised without a present father would [be] a tertiary injustice in and of itself."

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis attracted criticism for the character references they gave Danny Masterson.

Fellow That 70s Show performer Kunis wrote that Masterson was 'an amazing friend, confidant, and, above all, an outstanding older brother figure to me'.

She wrote: "Danny Masterson’s warmth, humor, and positive outlook on life have been a driving force in shaping my character and the way I approach life’s challenges.

"His unwavering commitment to being an exceptional older brother figure to me has had a transformative impact on my life, instilling in me a sense of self-belief and encouraging me to aim for greatness, but all while maintaining a sense of humility."

Kutcher and Kunis later appeared together in a video saying they supported victims of sexual assault and wrote the letters because Masterson's family asked them to, and did not question the jury's verdict.

They have faced a significant backlash, including from comedian Amy Schumer in a now-deleted post on Instagram.


The actor apologized for calling Nicole Kidman an alien and said she would be 'asking the cast of That 70s Show to write letters advocating for my forgiveness'.

One of the women who spoke out against Danny Masterson criticised the apology video from Kutcher and Kunis, saying it was 'incredibly insulting and hurtful'.

The woman, identified as Jane Doe #1, told journalist Yashar Ali: "My hope is that they learn radical accountability and the importance of self-education to learn when to keep their privilege in check - especially Ashton, who claims to work with victims of sex crimes.

"And as to Mila, I can only think of ‘Times Up’."

UNILAD have contacted the representatives of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis for comment.
