Actress Reagan Gomez has been very open about the way she was treated while on the set of “That 70’s Show”. However, fans have found her tweets after the series star, Danny Masterson was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison for the rape of two women in the early 2000s.
Gomez appeared on season 4 episode 4 of the series in the episode, “Hyde Gets the Girl” as Hyde’s girlfriend. In 2019, the actress best known for her role in “The Parent Hood,” recalled her time on the set of “That 70’s Show” calling it a nightmare.
“Oh I’ve told that story a few times. Working on that show was a nightmare. I think I was (if not the first) one of the Black characters they had on the show. I was supposed to be recurring,” she tweeted.
Reports state that Gomez’s issues started during her table read with Masterson, who played Steven Hyde on the show. “On my way home, I get a frantic call from my manager. They didn’t like my read,” she said. Gomez also claimed that the director told her that she needed to have “less sass” as well as told her things like “Don’t be cute” in front of her all white cast members.
“I felt so alone and humiliated. They kept me on for the rest of the week but no one in the cast talked to me. It was horrible. They never called me back,” she added.
Since Masterson’s conviction, fans have called for networks to pull it off air just like “The Cosby Show” was after Bill Cosby’s convictions. “That 70’s Show” aired in August 1998 and ended in May 2006. It ran for eight seasons.
