Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have responded to backlash over letters written to the judge in the case of convicted rapist Danny Masterson.  

‘We are aware of the pain that has been caused by the character letters we wrote on behalf of Danny Masterson,’ Ashton, 45, began in a short video shared on Instagram.

‘We support victims,’ Mila, 40, added. ‘We have done this historically through our work and will continue to do so in the future.’

Ashton informed viewers, ‘A couple months ago, Danny’s family reached out to us and they asked us to write character letters to represent the person that we knew for 25 years so that the judge could take that into full consideration relative to the sentencing.’

Masterson was handed a 30 years to life sentence earlier this week after a jury found him guilty of raping two women in the early 2000s.

The couple took turns speaking as Ashton chimed in, ‘A couple months ago, Danny’s family reached out to us and they asked us to write character letters to represent the person that we knew for 25 years so that the judge could take that into full consideration of the sentencing.’

Mila went on to say, ‘The letters were not written to question the legitimacy of the judicial system or the validity of the jury’s ruling.’

‘They were intended for the judge to read. And not to undermine the testimonies of the victims or re-traumatize them in any way. We would never want to do that. And we are sorry if that has taken place,’ Ashton emphasized.

‘Our heart goes out to every single person that has ever been a victim of sexual assault, sexual abuse or rape,’ Mila said to conclude their statement.

Since the actors’ letters were released, fans have not taken lightly to Ashton and Mila.
