Amy Schumer has deleted comments made on social media in which she joked about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ letters of support to convicted rapist Danny Masterson.
Schumer had posted a message that some considered “cyberbullying” about Nicole Kidman, and in her apology she referenced character letters sent to a judge before Masterson’s September 7 hearing, where he was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison.
“I want to apologize to everyone I hurt by posting a photo of Nicole Kidman and alluding to her alien status,” Schumer wrote in the since-deleted post, according to Page Six.
“I will ask the actors of this series from the 70s to write letters asking for my forgiveness,” she added, before adding the hashtag “#taketimetoheal”.

“You know you’re bad when Amy Schumer, among others, uses you to score points,” one user wrote on social media.

DANNY MASTERSON SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON FOR FORCED RAPE
Masterson was convicted to 30 years to life in prison after being convicted of two counts of forcible rape in May. The judge who sentenced the “That ’70s Show” star received nearly 50 letters of support from various people, including Kunis and Kutcher, according to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital.
Kutcher, who starred alongside Masterson on “That ’70s Show,” called the actor a “role model” in his letter.
“I directly credit Danny with not falling into the Hollywood drug life,” Kutcher explained. “Whenever we had to meet someone or interact with someone who was on drugs or taking drugs, he would make it clear to us that this would not be a good person to be friends with. And to me, that implied that If I were to do drugs, he wouldn’t want to be friends with me, which I would never want to risk or jeopardize. I’m grateful to him for that positive peer pressure.”
Kutcher and Kunis later apologized via Instagram, saying their letters were not intended to “undermine” the testimony of Masterson’s victims.

“We are aware of the pain caused by the letters we wrote on behalf of Danny Masterson,” Kutcher said in the video, while Kunis added: “We support the victims. We have done so historically through our work and we will continue to do so in the future.”
Masterson’s legal team plans to appeal the guilty verdict, telling Fox News Digital: “The errors made in this case are substantial and unfortunately led to verdicts that were not supported by the evidence.” And while we have great respect for the jury in this case, in this case and for our justice system as a whole, they sometimes get it wrong. And that’s what happened here.
“Mr. Masterson did not commit the crimes for which he was convicted and we, along with the best and brightest appellate attorneys in the country, are confident that these convictions will be overturned.” The actor’s lawyer, Shawn Holley. .
