Danny Masterson’s accuser has shared resurfaced footage of Ashton Kutcher making a lewd comment about a then-15-year-old Hilary Duff.

On Thursday (September 7), Masterson - best known for his role as Steven Hyde on the popular US sitcom That '70s Show - was handed a prison sentence of 30 years to life after being found guilty of two counts of rape.

Judge Charlaine Olmedo supervised the sentencing hearing, allowing the three Jane Does involved in the case to deliver victim impact statements. These three individuals include the two women Masterson was convicted of raping, as well as the third whose count was dismissed.

The Church of Scientology also became a central topic in the 47-year-old's initial trial and retrial, since he is a prominent member. All three of his accusers are also former church members, who claimed in testimonies that church officials prevented them from going to the police to report the crimes.

Chrissie Carnell Bixler - who was one of three women to accuse Masterson of rape and his ex-girlfriend - took to her Instagram Story on Saturday (September 9) to share old videos of Kutcher from the early 2000s.

The harrowing compilation video included a 2003 episode of Punk'd with the actor - who was 25 at the time - saying: "Hilary Duff is in Lizzie McGuire, she also has an album out. She’s going to be in a movie called Cheaper by the Dozen," before shockingly adding: "And she’s one of the girls that we’re all waiting for to turn 18. Along with the Olsen twins."

Bixler also drew attention to a clip from The Rosie O'Donnell Show, in which Mila Kunis recalled her That 70s Show co-stars Masterson and now-husband Kutcher making a "side bet" when she was 14 years old.

In the video, Kunis revealed: "Danny goes to him and goes, 'Dude, I’ll give you $10 if you French kiss her.' Were you gonna try and stick your tongue in my mouth?" The No Strings Attached star then pushed back against her telling of the story: "We had a little side bet going on. On the show, we're boyfriend and girlfriend. You would use tongue."

Furthermore, an additional clip also showed a stomach-turning clip of 15-year-old Kunis sitting on Kutcher's lap. The then-21-year-old star is heard saying: "And it feels good! And I like it a lot!", as he grabs Kunis, who is seen giggling and screaming.

The video is being re-shared following the backlash the Hollywood couple - who got married in 2015 and share two children - are facing for sharing letters of support for their "dear friend" ahead of his rape sentencing.

In the controversial statements requesting leniency, the 45-year-old said: "As a friend, Danny has been nothing but a positive influence on me," adding, "He’s an extraordinarily honest and intentional human being.

"I attribute not falling into the typical Hollywood life of drugs directly to Danny," he also said, before stating that he doesn’t believe that Masterson "is an ongoing harm to society".

Similarly, the 40-year-old Bad Moms star described Masterson as an "amazing friend, confidant, and, above all, an outstanding older brother figure to me," concluding: "His caring nature and ability to offer guidance have been instrumental in my growth both personally and professionally."

Kutcher and Kunis have since addressed the backlash to the letters in a video message shared to Instagram on Saturday. "We are aware of the pain that has been caused by the character letters that we wrote on behalf of Danny Masterson," the actor said.

He also remarked that they did not intend to "undermine the testimony of the victims or re-traumatize them in any way," adding: "And we’re sorry if that has been the case,"

Meanwhile, Kunis said: "We support victims. We have done this historically through our work and will continue to do so in the future," concluding, "Our heart goes out to every single person who has ever been a victim of sexual assault, sexual abuse or rape."

According to Page Six, Carnell Bixler slammed her ex's former co-stars in an Instagram Story, accusing Kutcher of being "just as sick" as Masterson. "In my opinion, you’re just as sick as your ‘mentor,'" she penned.

Carnell Bixler also directly addressed Kunis, adding: "If that’s what you view as a normal relationship with a 'big brother figure,' then I feel very sad for you, and I hope you consider getting into therapy. You all must forget I was there the whole time those first 5 years of 'That '70s Show.' I remember everything."
