Conan O’Brien Tells Danny Masterson “You Will Be Caught Soon” In Unearthed Clip From Talk Show
As you probably heard, “That ’70s Show” actor Danny Masterson was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison on Thursday for two rapes he committed back in 2003.
And the judge who sentenced him did not hold back during the hearing.
Mr. Masterson, you are not the victim here. Your actions 20 years ago took away another person’s choice and voice. Your actions 20 years ago today were criminal, and that’s why you are here.
All of his accusers were allowed to read statements during the sentencing, and one of the victims told Masterson that he was addicted to hurting women. “It is without question your favorite thing to do,” she reportedly read.
This sentencing comes after Masterson was found guilty of his crimes back in May during a retrial after his first trial resulted in a hung jury.
Masterson received the max sentence for the charges against him, and he will likely remain in prison for the rest of his life.
And now that he’s been charged and sentenced, people are looking back at his old clips to see if there was any indication that he was a serial rapist.
There’s a clip going around Twitter of Masterson on Conan O’Brien’s late night show in 2004. In the clip, Conan talks to Masterson about his Long Island accent.
“It just goes away naturally,” Masterson revealed, but then joked that there are certain words that seem to make it come out.
My friend always teases me. He says, ‘Hi, my name is Danny Masterson, would you like to touch my balls?’
Conan seemed shocked, “Are you asking people to do that?” the clip ends with Conan telling Masterson that he will be caught soon, and even though he was clearly joking… it’s pretty eerie.
