Kutcher and Kunis, who have been married since 2015, starred alongside Masterson in the hit sitcom show that ran from 1998 to 2006. On Saturday, the two appeared together in a post shared to social media, claiming to be sorry for issuing statements that apparently caused pain to Masterson's victims.

    Actor Danny Masterson (primarily known as Hyde on "That 70s Show") has been convicted of rape. Specifically, he was convicted of raping adult women in his home, women who were in their 20s at the time. And he has now been sentenced for it. Thirty years to life. That's a heck of a sentence. The allegations surfaced in 2017 and 2018. The crimes – the alleged rapes, which he has completely denied - took place between 2001 and 2003. We shouldn’t want to take his side. He's a Scientologist - a particularly offensive cult that has a huge amount of...
  • Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown had to threaten Biden, who was groping Brown’s wife

    This should be something that shocks and surprises us. Instead, it reminds us that the rules don’t apply to that very protected politician, Joe Biden. Currently, Joe Biden’s creepy, handsy, sniffing behavior is limited to the little children who get too close to him. And this conduct is newsworthy because it’s disgusting, especially when the head of the American state engages in it. However, it’s worth remembering that Biden has been credibly accused of sexual assault and has a decades-long reputation for grabbing grown women. Now, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown has reminded us that he once had to threaten...

    Melinda French Gates has shared she is 'very nervous about artificial intelligence' being 'baked with bias' because there is a lack of women developing such tools. The comments appear to take a jab at ex-husband Bill Gates, 67, who is leading the charge for the systems and has faced sexual harassment allegations from former female staff. 'We don't have enough women who are computer scientists and expertise in artificial intelligence,' French Gates, 58, told CNN Thursday. She continued to explain that the tech needs to 'take all people's points of view and see society and, quite frankly, see the world...
  • The Men Fight Back (After MeToo, a Regressive Vision of Masculinity Became Increasingly Popular.)

    After MeToo, a regressive vision of masculinity became increasingly popular. Here’s a guide.More than five years ago, the MeToo movement exploded and our culture shifted. But what actually changed? This project seeks to reexamine the era by asking how it will alter the lives of the next generation. One of the consequences of the revelations that many prominent men behaved poorly in private was a very public effort to grapple with the whole concept of masculinity. Boys have long been mired in a well-publicized and seemingly endless “crisis.” But MeToo raised another question: Who would speak to these men? Over...

    Toby Addison, 21, recalled the mortifying moment years prior when he was kicked out of the gym for “creepily” staring at a woman — despite the fact he cannot see — while on the “Happy Hour Podcast” earlier in June. Addison, who shares his life as a blind person on his TikTok account, @blindtobes, said he was “minding his own business” during a workout when he heard a woman say: “Oh, do you like the view?” “Obviously I don’t really know where I’m looking a lot of the time,” the content creator shared on the podcast. “I was just staring...

    Molly Ringwald thinks cancel culture is an "unsustainable" response to the issues that arose with #MeTooMolly Ringwald is still best known for being John Hughes’ leading lady, but she’s also a singer, writer, Riverdale mom, real mom, and a French translator. Her latest work is translating My Cousin Maria Schneider, by Vanessa Schneider. Inevitably, that’s led to Ringwald contemplating the violation Schneider experienced on the set of Last Tango In Paris and how their parallel roles as highly visible film stars differed. “In a way, my experience was the opposite of Maria’s,” she tells The Guardian in a new interview....

    As American men continue to struggle, second gentleman Douglas Emhoff wants to use his platform to denounce so-called toxic masculinity. Emhoff this past week told MSNBC that there’s too much “toxicity” in masculinity these days, an issue he’s spent “a lot” of time thinking about. “There’s too much of toxicity — masculine toxicity out there, and we’ve kind of confused what it means to be a man, what it means to be masculine,” the 58-year-old said. “You’ve got this trope out there where you have to be tough, and angry, and lash out to be strong,” Emhoff continued. “I think...

    A Google executive claims he was booted by the tech giant for rejecting a high-ranking female boss’ grabby advances at a posh company dinner. Ryan Olohan, 48, accuses Google and one of its top executives, Tiffany Miller, of firing him after Miller groped him at a Chelsea restaurant in December 2019 and told him she knew he liked Asian women — which Miller is, according to a blockbuster federal lawsuit filed Nov. 30 in Manhattan. Miller, director of Google’s programmatic media, rubbed Olohan’s abs, complimented his physique, and told him her marriage lacked “spice,” according to court papers. The alleged...

    Ashley Morgan Smithline claimed that the musician abused her several times from 2010 to 2013A California court has dismissed without prejudice a 2021 lawsuit accusing Brian Warner—also known as Marilyn Manson—of sexual assault, as the Los Angeles Times reports and Pitchfork can confirm. Model and entertainer Ashley Morgan Smithline sued the musician for sexual assault, sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unlawful imprisonment, and more. Warner has denied the allegations. In October, Jay Ellwanger withdrew as Smithline’s attorney; she did not meet a deadline by December to acquire new representation or represent herself, leading to the court’s most recent...

    Margot Robbie has revealed how she grabbed an unscripted snog with Brad Pitt in their new film Babylon. The actress ad-libbed the kiss but insists it was the tamest part of the film. Set in 1920s Hollywood, Babylon showcases the decadence and debauchery of the era with orgies and sex scenes aplenty. Margot, 32 – who is also making her name as a producer – said of the clinch: “That wasn’t in the script, but I thought ‘When else am I gonna get the chance to kiss Brad Pitt? “I’m just gonna go for it.’ A movie kiss is different...

    Even Steve Bannon and other key advisers to former President Donald Trump have had enough of his latest stunts — demanding everyone behind his wacky NFT collection be “fired today.” “I can’t do this anymore,” an exasperated-sounding Bannon said Thursday on his show, “The War Room,” when discussing the widely derided collection the 45th president launched the previous day.

    The movement's net caught a lot of men like writer Junot Diaz—ordinary jerks rather than formidable serial predators.Amid the glut of retrospectives on the five-year anniversary of #MeToo, the where-are-they-now rundowns of accused men and movement icons alike, a sense emerges that the #MeToo movement itself has finally transformed from a cause du jour to grist for the cultural mill. What it gives us now isn't news but narratives: the Pulitzer-winning reporting, the bestselling books based on the prize-winning reporting, the movies based on the books. The release this month of She Said, a dramatized retelling of how New York...

    ..... But now it seems an individual as well is calling for an investigation into another matter concerning the president. An aide who formerly brought claims against Joe Biden but was intimidated into backing off at that time has reinstated her claim against the now-president due to the change of hands of the House. A former aide to President Joe Biden, back when he was a U.S. Senator from Delaware, wants the House of Representatives to open up a formal inquiry into her allegations of being sexually assaulted by Biden in 1993, Independent Journal Review reports.

    I saw a woman on TikTok say she can stump almost any man with one specific question. The question was “Name three women who you are not related to who you admire and want to be more like.” I immediately saw her point. Misogyny generally blinds most men from seeing women as people they want to admire and, critically, to be like. So much of masculinity is about making sure we are not like women. We may love women, but we are taught to aspire to be like successful men. The qualities that most men respect in women are not...

    The jury in the Danny Masterson rape trial told the judge on Friday that it could not reach a verdict.

    Brendan Fraser is a frontrunner to land an Oscar nomination for best actor thanks to his acclaimed performance in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale.” But you rarely get to an Oscar nomination without stops at other major precursory awards first, including the Golden Globes, which will be back in full force on NBC in 2023. Fraser confirmed to GQ magazine that he will not participate in the Globes if he is nominated for “The Whale” due to his accusation that Philip Berk, former president and member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, groped him at a 2003 luncheon at the Beverly...
