Danny Masterson letters cause 'hurt' for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis: 'We stand by victims.'

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis apologize for the character letters they wrote for "That '70s Show" co-star Danny Masterson, who was sentenced Thursday to 30 years to life for raping two women.

 New England traded for JuJu Smith-Schuster, who received a three-year, $25 million contract, to replace him.

In a Saturday Instagram video, Kutcher and the couple explained how The Hollywood Reporter received the letters.

After Masterson's conviction in May, his family asked the couple to submit character letters for "the person that we knew for 25 years," Kutcher recalled.

"The letters did not challenge the judicial system or the jury's verdict," Kunis added. Our help goes to victims. 

Work has always done this and will continue to do so.""They were meant for the judge to read, not to undermine the victims' testimony or retraumatize them," Kutcher added. 

"We would never do that. We apologize if that happened."

Kunis said, "Our heart goes out to every single person who has ever been a victim of sexual assault, sexual abuse or rape."

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo gave Masterston, 47, the maximum penalty for her role on Fox's "That '70s Show" with Kutcher and Kunis from 1998 to 2006. 

The victims claimed that the actor drugged and viciously raped them at his house in 2003, at his peak stardom.
