Celebrities such as Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher  wrote letters in support of actor Danny Masterson during his rape trial in which they vowed for his “exceptional character.”

The trial in question found him guilty of two counts of forcible rape and sentenced him to 30 years to life in prison on Thursday. The assaults reportedly occurred in separate incidents between 2001 and 2003. Masterson at the time was still starring on That ’70s Show.

Good Morning America reported that the couple were among a group of over 50 people who submitted statements on behalf of Masterson before his sentencing on Thursday.

Niesha Trout, one of the rape victims took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to condemn the letters written by Kunis and Kutcher. “The letters will be leaked soon, but I want you all to know that post Danny Masterson’s conviction & after they read all of the gruesome sworn-under-oath testimony of 5 of Danny’s victims, Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis submitted letters to the judge asking her for leniency on Danny,” she wrote.

GMA reported that Kutcher called Masterson a “role model,” while Kunis vouched for his “exceptional character.” The entire contents of the letters have not been made public yet. Trout also a statement about her experience during his trial. “When you raped me, you stole from me. That’s what rape is, a theft of the spirit,” she said, per GMA‘s report.

Kutcher has spoken in support of his former co-star multiple times since the beginning of his trial. He has remained friends with Masterson over the years since they starred together in That ’70s Show. Masterson later starred opposite Kutcher in the Netflix series The Ranch. He exited the show after his rape accusations came to light in 2017.

Just months before Masterson was found guilty of raping two Jane Does, Kutcher told Esquire in February: “I don’t want him to elude the law, but I wish for the truth to show he’s innocent. I can’t know… I’m not the judge, the jury, the DA, the victim, or the accused. I’m in no position to comment. I genuinely don’t know.”
