Ashton Kutcher has resigned from an anti-sex trafficking organization.
An organization that he founded himself.
Kutcher founded Thorn, an anti-child-sex-abuse organization, back in 2009.
Now, he's stepping down.
Because he was revealed to have penned a letter vouching for the character of former television co-star Danny Masterson.
In the letter, Kutcher explained what a great person Masterson was.
It turned out that Masterson is a diabolical rapist who will be spending the next few decades behind bars.
Needless to say, that wasn't the type of P.R. that Ashton Kutcher was looking for.
Instead of having people distracted by the fact that the leader of an anti-sex trafficking organization recently endorsed a rapist, Kutcher decided to step down from the organization he had founded.
"Victims of sexual abuse have been historically silenced and the character statement I submitted is yet another painful instance of questioning victims who are brave enough to share their experiences," Kutcher apparently told the nonprofit organization's board.
"After my wife and I spent several days of listening, personal reflection, learning, and conversations with survivors and the employees and leadership at Thorn, I have determined the responsible thing for me to do is resign as Chairman of the Board, effectively immediately. I cannot allow my error in judgment to distract from our efforts and the children we serve."
Following their letters in support of Danny Masterson, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are stepping down from Thorn, the anti-child-sex-abuse organization Kutcher co-founded in 2009.

"The mission must always be the priority and I want to offer my heartfelt apology to all victims of sexual violence and everyone at Thorn who I hurt by what I did," Kutcher added.
