On Friday, September 8, Kutcher took to Instagram to share a video about the couple's Airbnb partnership, which saw them hosting guests at their Santa Barbara beach house. However, fans were not amused by the deflection from the headline-making court case involving their longtime friend.
"Imagine supporting a rapist. You should both be ashamed of yourselves," one user penned below the video of the actors welcoming people into their home. "So much for caring about victims. Lost all respect," a second person chimed in.
"Hope your buddy absolutely rots in jail, enabler. Like really loses his mind and the will to live," a third person passionately wrote, while an additional comment read, "How can you support a rapist? Good character 🤮."
As OK! previously reported, Kutcher broke his silence — before the sitcom star was convicted — about his close friend earlier this year and admitted that they still talk despite the horrific crimes he committed. "I wholesale feel for anybody who feels like they were violated in any way," he admitted in a January interview.

"I'm not the judge. I'm not the jury. I'm not the DA. I'm not the victim. And I'm not the accused," he noted of his The Ranch costar — whom he said he wanted "to be found innocent of the charges against him" but "couldn't know" at the moment. "And so, in that case, I don't have a space to comment… I just don't know."
