1. BREAKING: The women who have accused @dannymasterson of rape, have sued Scientology, its controversial leader David Miscavige, and Masterson. Among many allegations, they have accused Scientology/Masterson of conspiracy to obstruct justice and stalking https://t.co/04hYPaky6v— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 15, 2019
Masterson has directly responded to the lawsuit with a statement just as vile as you'd expect from Ashton Kutcher's best friend. In it he specifically targets his ex-girlfriend, Bobette Riales, who is one of the four women suing Masterson, et. al. Riales has never wavered in her allegations of multiple rapes by Masterson she survived during their relationship. Both Riales and fellow accuser Chrissie Carnell-Bixler have endured years of alleged sustained harassment from Masterson and his fellow Scientologists that Bixler, in particular, has documented heavily on her social media.
2. Just received this statement from Danny Masterson which I will add to my story.— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 15, 2019
Masterson fails to address that three other women have accused him of rape and various other allegations. He is solely focused on ONE of his ex-girlfriends.

3.I've been working on this for three years and have written multiple stories on it. Four women have accused Danny Masterson of drugging them and violently raping them. Two of the women are his ex-girlfriends. Three of the women are former Scientologists https://t.co/04hYPaky6v— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 15, 2019
4. Masterson has been the subject of an investigation conducted by LAPD/LA District Attorney into the allegations of rape by the four women for the past 3 years. As the investigation has dragged on, LA DA Jackie Lacey has faced harsh criticism https://t.co/04hYPaky6v— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) August 15, 2019
Yashar has now specifically addressed the friendship between Masterson and Kutcher. For anyone unaware, when allegations first arose Masterson was employed by Kutcher on his Netflix show, The Ranch. No action was taken by Kutcher in response until Netflix intervened.
