The movie star couple — who each starred with Danny on ‘That ’70s Present’ — have been getting crucified on-line after it got here out they every wrote letters to the choose in DM’s sentencing listening to … by which they mentioned he was of fine character, and deserved mercy.
After all, lots of people did not take too kindly to that … and it appears Ashton and Mila are absolutely conscious of that, ‘trigger they only posted an apology video explaining their intentions.
Try how they break this down for your self — MK and AK say their letters weren’t meant to discredit the decision reached towards Danny, nor was it supposed to push again towards what his two accusers on this case had alleged towards him … specifically, rape.
They are saying all they had been attempting to do was lay out who they personally knew Danny as, and what their experiences had been like with him — this after being requested by his household to take action.

His testimony to Congress a number of years in the past — the place he passionately laid out his mission to guard victims of abuse — has been making the rounds anew … and drawing side-eyes.
It will be attention-grabbing to see how the general public takes this mea culpa. Truth is, plenty of the dynamics of the present again then are underneath a microscope proper now within the wake of Masterson’s imprisonment — together with a glance again at how Topher Grace was portrayed on the time.
BTW, it is value noting … Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp — who performed Pink and Kitty Forman, respectively — additionally wrote letters to the choose on behalf of Danny … however have not obtained almost as a lot backlash as Ashton and Mila did over the previous 24 hours.
The opposite distinguished forged members — together with Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama — have remained silent.
