This show from the 70s Ashley Hinshaw, wife of star Topher Grace, sent her love and support to the victims who were raped by Danny Mastersonand received an outpouring of support from fans for his lyrics.
Ashley posted a photo of the blue sky and greenery and captioned it: “To every rape victim who is retraumatized by witnessing a societal debate and focuses their attention on what will happen to the rapist … I see you.”
“Topher’s wife Grace. Finally someone with some sensitivity,” said one fan on X, formerly known as Twitter, while another added: “Topher’s wife Grace (Ashley Hinshaw) actually showing support for the victims is way better than just staying silent like 99% of Hollywood does lol.”
The decision to speak out also comes as the way Topher was portrayed is reexamined in the wake of Danny’s conviction. This show from the 70s ran for eight years between 1998 and 2006 and focused on the lives of a group of six teenage friends living in the fictional town of Point Place, Wisconsin in the late 1970s.
At the time, it was well documented that Topher didn’t spend time with the rest of the cast when the cameras stopped rolling, which some saw in a negative light at the time.
Now, however, fans are reconsidering the details, with one writing on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Topher Grace… was described as being a loner who didn’t socialize with the cast from the 70s series. Good for him. He went on to have a real career and is no longer involved in the Danny Masterson rape conviction mess. Match, set point Topher. ”
“I have a newfound respect for Topher Grace,” another added. “After years of hearing that he was called ‘entitled’ or ‘diva,’ I now wonder if it was just because he didn’t like Danny Masterson and the rest of the cast.”
Topher’s former co-stars Ashton and Mila wrote letters of support of Danny to influence the judge when it came to sentencing after he was convicted of two rape charges; they later posted a video on Instagram apologizing for the ‘pain caused’ after the publication of their letters.
Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith also wrote letters. Laura would be a former Scientologist.
Dany was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of rape. The actor was convicted of two of three forcible rape charges in May 2023. He has always maintained his innocence.
Danny, a member of the Church of Scientology, was accused of raping three women in his Hollywood Hills home between 2001 and 2003. The jury convicted him of raping two women, but failed to find a verdict on a November 2001 allegation involving a former girlfriend.
“Mr. Masterson, you are not the victim here. Your actions 20 years ago took away another person’s voice and choice. Your actions 20 years ago were criminal, and that is why you are here,” Judge Charlaine Olmedo said in the courtroom Thursday, September 7.
In a letter sent to Judge Olmedo, Ashton wrote: “While I am aware that the judgment was convicted on two counts of forcible rape and that the victims have a great desire for justice, I hope that my testimony about his character” is taken into account during sentencing. I do not believe that he constitutes a permanent harm to society and having his daughter raised without a current father would be a third injustice in itself. Thank you having taken the time to read this.”
Part of Mila’s letter to the judge read: “Danny has always shown a deep sense of responsibility and special attention to those around him.. He shows grace and empathy in all situations, whether in the entertainment industry or in our personal lives. His constant support and understanding presence make him a reliable source of advice and comfort to us all. »
