Yesterday, Kutcher posted a truly idiotic tweet about the firing Joe Paterno amid a disastrous Penn State Scandal that only seems to be getting worse.
“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste”
I’m sure the parents of all the little boys that got molested are offended too, Ashton.
Here’s where it gets good, though.
About 20 minutes later, after everyone in the known universe started ganging up on Kutcher about his incredibly insensitive tweet, he deleted it, saying that he had “no knowledge” of the Penn State scandal and thought it was just a “football thing.”
This is one of the most socially connected people on the planet…and he’s also a huge sports fans. You’d have to be living in a cave to not hear about the whole Jerry Sandusky mess.
Kutcher followed up with an apology:
“As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won’t happen again.”
“As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.”
NFL star Chad Ochocinco even got in Kutcher’s grill with this tweet:
“Good luck fending off all the people you’ve upset with YOUR opinion boss.”
I’d have to agree. Sorry, Ashton. The shirt you’re wearing in the photo above would seem to sum it up best.
It’s probably best that you gracefully bow out of this debate and go back to slowly ruining Two & a Half Men.
