The actor Danny Masterson’s character Rooster Bennett was fired from the Netflix original series “The Ranch” in part 5 as a result of some serious allegations made against him. But people still appear unable to comprehend the circumstances surrounding Danny Masterson, or Rooster Bennett as the “Ranchers” refer to him. With former co-star Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson portrayed one of the Bennett brothers.
Danny Masterson was fired from the Netflix comedy in 2017 as a result of allegations of sexual assault against him. In the course of his romantic relationships, not just one woman but many women came forward to accuse Masterson of rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence. The actor was accused by one of the women of drugging her and raping her while she was unconscious.
The only option left to Netflix and the “The Ranch” creators was to cancel Danny Masterson’s season of the show. Netflix was criticized for not dismissing the actor as the Masterson scandal quickly became very public. But as soon as Masterson wrapped up shooting “The Ranch”: Part 5 of the drama series, Netflix made the decision to cut his portrayal of Rooster Bennett from the remaining episodes.
Masterson found it offensive to kick him out of the program before his guilt had been established. He stated, “I am not happy with Netflix’s decision to write my character off of ‘The Ranch,'” according to a statement to “The Wrap.” I have consistently refuted the ludicrous accusations made against me. These allegations were looked into by law enforcement more than 15 years ago, and it was found that they were unfounded. I have never been accused of committing a crime, And You are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in this nation.
How did the crew handle Rooster’s departure?
A compelling argument and an even more compelling method were required to exclude Rooster Bennett from “The Ranch.” It’s likely that the Netflix writers had no other option besides eliminating Rooster. The final episode of “The Ranch” part 5 features Rooster Bennett. The episode, titled “Change,” depicts Rooster returning to his cabin only to discover the breakup of Nick, Mary’s ex-boyfriend.
Rooster makes a joke about Mary possibly sleeping with Colt when Nick asks if Mary was with him the night before. Nick threatens to kill Rooster after being offended by his snarky comments, but Colt intervenes to prevent things from getting worse. Later that day, Mary tells Rooster about her breakup with Nick when they cross paths.
Nick is once more waiting for Rooster when he gets home, but this time he has a bag full of his belongings. After some back-and-forth, Nick holds Rooster at gunpoint and demands that he leave town or he will kill his family. Rooster submits, but later (in part 6), when Colt becomes frustrated with his inability to find his brother, the police intervene and discover Rooster’s bike at the base of a cliff. This marks the end of Danny Masterson’s action in “The Ranch” and the presumed death of Rooster Bennett.
Crowd reaction for rooster exit.
A fan stated, I know that Rooster leaving is not always out of character,”. He made decisions based on what was best for him. He is very protective of himself. Another friend argued, “Rooster’s actions were, in my opinion, in line with his characterization throughout the show… Although it felt a little hurried, the writer left room for him to return, which is a good thing.
Netflix had to fire Masterson and kill off Rooster Bennett from “The Ranch” as a result of the grave developments. Although most viewers agreed with Netflix’s choice, some of them thought Masterson should not have been fired unless guilty. The seriousness of the accusations against Masterson was unaffected by this, though. Dany Masterson’s release by Netflix was appropriate, and it wasn’t done in a way that violated the rule of law.
Hence, throwing an important character into the middle of the show is not as easy as it seems. Sometimes it could have a bad impact on the show. The show can be dead or can fall the following day.
