image for Ashton Kutcher resigns from anti-child sex abuse organization after backlash over Danny Masterson letter

Ashton Kutcher has resigned from his role as board chairman of Thorn, a nonprofit he co-founded over a decade ago to combat child sexual exploitation, the actor announced Friday.

The decision to step down was "rooted in the recognition of recent events," the organization said in a statement, referencing the backlash against Kutcher and his wife, Mila Kunis, after they wrote letters in support of convicted rapist Danny Masterson.

"I cannot allow my error in judgment to distract from our efforts and the children we serve," he continued.

"Blood was not thicker than water in my case," Griffin said in a video posted to her TikTok and Instagram accounts.

Kutcher said Friday that he realizes his character letter was "another painful instance of questioning victims who are brave enough to share their experiences.".

"This is precisely what we have all worked to reverse over the last decade," he said in his statement.

He also offered an apology to the advocacy community, writing that he would continue to support Thorn's work. »
