• Danny Masterson's rape victims are thankful to Los Angeles D.A. office for pressing charges against the actor
  • Masterson and the litigation counsel for the Church of Scientology denied the sexual allegations
  • Leah Remini is thankful that the victims are finally being heard

Danny Masterson's rape victims were thankful to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office for helping them file charges against the “That '70s Show” star.

Masterson has been charged with sexual assault after allegedly forcing three women to have sex with him. The separate incidents occurred between 2001 and 2003.

The women were intimidated and stalked after Masterson and the Church of Scientology learned they were accusing the actor of sexual assault. Thus, they were very thankful to the D.A. for pressing charges against Masterson.

In their statement, the women said they only want “justice, accountability and truth.” However, when they sought for thouse, they were subjected to “harassment, embarrassment and re-victimization by Masterson.” Those things allegedly worsened when they cooperated with the authorities.

“We are thankful that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office is finally seeking criminal justice against Masterson after a three-year investigation,” the women said, per People.

“We are confident that the truth will be known and hope that the charges filed today are the first steps in this long journey of healing, justice, and holding those that victimized us accountable.”

Meanwhile, Masterson denied the allegations and even called them “ridiculous.” The actor released a statement through his attorney after the civil suit was filed.

“I’m not going to fight my ex-girlfriend in the media like she’s been baiting me to do for more than two years,” Masterson said.

“I will beat her in court — and look forward to it because the public will finally be able learn the truth and see how I’ve been railroaded by this woman. And once her lawsuit is thrown out, I intend to sue her and the others who jumped on the bandwagon for the damage they caused me and my family.”

The litigation counsel for the Church of Scientology also called the allegations against Masterson “baseless.” They are confident that the lawsuit will go nowhere.

“It’s a dishonest and hallucinatory publicity stunt. Leah Remini is taking advantage of these people as pawns in her moneymaking scam,” the counsel said.

Meanwhile, Remini reacted to the issue on Twitter. She was very pleased that the “victims are being heard.”
