Ashton Kutcher’s Got A Big Mouth, Issues Apology & New Twitter Management Action Plan
Ashton Kutcher is getting in an awful lot of trouble these days…
Note to Ashton: Don’t have sex with people that aren’t your wife; and think before you Tweet. These are rules to live by.
Last night, in the wake of the Penn State Board of Trustees firing of Joe Paterno, Ashton took to Twitter to air out his grievances over the matter, saying “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.” That tweet has since been removed from his feed.
Err, Ashton, Paterno was fired for covering up the 2002 rape of a ten-year-old boy by Jerry Sandusky, his friend and colleague. You can see why people would be tweaked by your support of him, right?
Right, because they were. Ashton received some serious Twitterlash last night. Some of his million plus followers wrote things like, “F***k you. He covered up child rape you sick, geriatricf***.”
Once Kutcher realized that he’d made a serious faux pas he back-peddled, removed the Tweet, and posted the following:
“Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet! Didn’t have full story. #admitwhenYoumakemistakes.”
“This is an insane story, I just heard paterno was fired, getting the rest of the story now… Wow.”
“As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.”
“Honestly just had half facts man my bad … I need 2b more responsible 4 my voice.”
“As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed,” he wrote. “I feel awful about this error. Won’t happen again.”
How does that foot taste, Ashton?
Pretty good apparently. He just posted this explanation on his blog.
“As a football fan and someone who had watched Joe’s career move from that of legend/innovator to a head coach that fullfilled his duty in the booth, I assumed that the university had let him go due to football related issues. With that assumption (how dare I assume) I posted a tweet defending his career. I then when about my evening, had some dinner, did a little work, and about an hour later turned on ESPN where I got the full story. I quickly when back on my twitter account and found a hailstorm of responses calling me an “idiot” and several other explitives that I’ve become accustom to hearing for almost anything I post. I quickly retracted and deleted my previous post, however that didn’t seem enough to satisfy peoples outrage at my misinformed post. I truely am sorry if I offended anyone and more over am going to take action to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.”
