Danny Masterson was sentenced to 30 years in prison on two counts of rape on Thursday.
Some fans of "That 70s Show" wonder if the series will get pulled from syndication as a result.
TV networks removed "The Cosby Show" after Bill Cosby's sexual assault conviction.
For now, "That '70s Show" is still available on streaming sites and a digital network. But some fans wonder for how long.
"That '70s Show" ended after season eight in May 2006 but continues to be syndicated. It is now available to stream on Peacock and for purchase on Amazon. It also airs on Laff, a digital network owned by Katz Broadcasting, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show has been in the headlines after a judge sentenced one of its stars, Danny Masterson, to 30 years in prison on Thursday for two counts of rape. The show catapulted much of its cast into stardom, including Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, and Topher Grace.
After Masterson's conviction, and backlash to revelations that some of his castmates supported him, the show is being analyzed through a new, more critical lens. Online, some fans are speculating whether "That '70s Show" should be pulled from streaming and syndication altogether.
"Did Peacock remove "That 70s Show" from their streaming platform yet?" one person asked.
Another wrote: "So basically the ENTIRE ass cast of that 70s show has decided to defend Danny then? @peacock - remove the show from your platform."
Others compared the situation to "The Cosby Show," which some networks pulled from syndication after its star, Bill Cosby, was convicted of sexual assault in 2018.
According to Refinery 29, TV Land became one of the first networks to stop showing reruns in November 2014 once the allegations against Cosby resurfaced. Aspire and BET's Centric followed suit, and Bounce TV announced they also stopped syndication in April 2018 after Cosby's guilty verdict. Around this time, Cosby also lost work on a potential NBC sitcom. Netflix indefinitely postponed a stand-up comedy special, CBS reported.
"If the Cosby Show is off air That 70s Show needs scrubbing too!" one person on X wrote.
Representatives for Peacock, Amazon, and Laff did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
