Offering a “heartfelt apology to all victims of sexual violence and everyone at Thorn who I hurt by what I did,” along with the “broader advocacy community,” Kutcher included, “I remain proud of what we have accomplished in the past decade and will continue to support Thorn’s work. Thank you for your tireless advocacy and dedication to this cause.”
Kutcher and then-wife Demi Moore introduced Thorn in 2012 after discovering “the issue of child sex trafficking from a documentary highlighting what was happening to children in Cambodia,” according to the company’s site. As part of his function as co-founder, he affirmed at a 2017 hearing with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to take a look at the United States’ development in ending contemporary slavery and human trafficking.
The 45- year-old’s resignation from Thorn comes a week after letters he and Kunis, 40, penned to a judge commanding Masterson’s sentencing were revealed. In files acquired by E! News, Kutcher explained Masterson– who was founded guilty on 2 counts of rape in May however has actually rejected any misbehavior– as an “excellent” good example who had actually been “nothing but a positive influence on me.”
