#MeToo continues as another woman comes forward with her story of sexual abuse.
Bobette Riales has publicly accused The Ranch actor, Danny Masterson, of raping her. This makes her as the fifth woman to accuse Masterson of sexual assault.
The 5th Victim
On Thursday, Riales took to Twitter to share that she was also raped by Masteron. Riales, who was also the actor's ex-girlfriend, alleged that the assault took place in early 2000.
I stayed quiet long enough. Danny Masterson repeatedly raped me. All I seek is justice and to prevent this from ever happening to anyone else as it has for some time. My truth will be heard. I applaud her strength as well. @ChrissieBixler #metoo #sisters — Bobette Riales (@RialesMBobette) December 21, 2017
Riales tagged Chrissie Carnell Baker who was the first woman to go public with her accusations against Masterson in the tweet. Baker responded to Riales tweet and offered her support.
You are amazing. I'm so proud of you. He will never do this to another human being ever again. He's a thief in the night, but he overlooked some incredibly valuable things we still possess. Our voice. — chrissie carnell-bixler (@ChrissieBixler) December 21, 2017
Masterson, who was fired the Netflix original show, has yet to respond to Riales claims. He has, however, already denied the other four women's allegations against him. Masterson could return for a few episodes for the third season, but that has not been confirmed.
In addition to Masterson, Andy Yeatman, who was the director of Kids and Family content of the company, was also let go by Netflix. It was reported that Yeatman told one of Masterson's victims that the network did not believe her story.
Netflix also dropped actor Kevin Spacey from his show, House of Cards, and comedian, Louis C.K, due to the multiple allegations against them.
It has also been reported that the LAPD and the Los Angeles County District Attorney are now officially investigating the allegations against Masterson.
Masterson starred on the scripted comedy since the first season as Jameson "Rooster" Bennett, the elder brother of Ashton Kutcher's character. Masterson and Kutcher also starred in the hit sitcom, That 70's Show, from 1998 to 2006.
Masterson is married to Bijou Phillips and the couple has one daughter together, Fianna Frances Masterson.
