Netflix fired Danny Masterson from "The Ranch" on Dec. 5 amid accusations that he raped four women. The actor has maintained his innocence. In a statement, Netflix explained, "As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of 'The Ranch.' [Monday] was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him." Four women have claimed that Danny raped them in the early 2000s. After the news of his ouster was made official, Danny told The Huffington Post, "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. 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 political climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused. I understand and look forward to clearing my name once and for all."

As for the rape claim, Morgan, who was a college student at the time, said he remembered the evening quite differently than his alleged victim, explaining that he and the woman were "fooling around" after a night of drinking and had sex. "She believed she was raped," he said. He went on to say that he knew that his actions would come to light sooner or later. "As I sit around watching hero after hero, man after man, fall at the realization of their past indiscretions, I don't sit by and wonder 'who will be next?' I wonder, 'when will they come for me?,'" he wrote, referring to the rape allegation. He said he even quietly settled a harassment case brought against him about eight years ago, admitting he would call a female assistant "hot pants" or "sex pants." He also admitted to being unfaithful to every wife and girlfriend he's ever had. He now says he wants to be "part of the solution." He wrote, "By recognizing and openly admitting what I've done to further this terrible situation, I hope to empower the change within myself. We should all find the courage to admit we're at fault. More than anything, I'm hopeful that I can start to rebuild the trust and the respect of those I love most. I'm not sure I deserve it, but I will work everyday to earn it back." In the wake of his revelations, his production company partners withdrew "Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!" from January's Sundance Film Festival and YouTube Red, which has the rights to the film, announced it would not release it.
