Ashton Kutcher’s Latest Twitter 'Oops!' Shows He’s Dumber Than We Thought


ashton kutcherAshton Kutcher loves him some Twitter. But you know what he loves even more? Cheating on Demi Moore. Himself. The Two and a Half Men star took to his Twitter yesterday to express his outrage over the firing of Penn State's Joe Paterno. He wrote: "How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."

His followers immediately fired off a barrage of insults to the actor for defending the 84-year-old coach. Kutcher tried to rescind his statement, tweeting, "Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet! Didn't have full story," and, "As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case."

Whatever, Ashton. If you're such an advocate against child sexual exploitation, how could you not have known about what's going on with Paterno and Sandusky?

Even if you're not an "advocate," how could you not have known? Self-involved much?

Jerry Sandusky's alleged sex abuse of troubled, young boys, and Joe Paterno's possible "covering" of it, have arguably been the biggest two stories in the United States this week. How does one, even if they're a busy Hollywood actor, manage to go through the day totally unaware of this? I honestly don't understand how it's even possible to not know what's going on at least somewhat at this point -- particularly if you're a big college football fan. Or if you're an "advocate against child sexual exploitation." Or if you're on Twitter non-stop. Come to think of it, Ashton should have been all over this story.

But, alas, here's the thing about celebrities and things that are "going on in the world": They just don't go together. Save for a few, well-rounded men and women, famous people are really only interested in one thing -- and that would be themselves. When they're forced to answer a question during an interview about something outside of this realm -- or when they jump on Twitter and start spewing nonsense -- only one thing happens: They wind up looking like idiots.

Ashton just demonstrated this beautifully.

Do you think Ashton should "think before he Tweets"? Do you think celebs should just stop talking about news?

Ashton is a tool!

Well. I think it's a pretty big leap to use this incident to say all famous people are selfish jerks. Should we stereotype any other parts of the population while we are at it? But it is a good example of why you need to research something before you form an opinion and/or post it on twitter.

Twitter is expressly designed as a tool of immediate communication - a sort-of written message off the top of your head. And for that reason, Twitter is full of a lot of knee-jerk reactions, less-than-well-thought-out things and misinformation. Does the fact that Ashton apparently fell out of the news cycle for a few days immediately brand him as an idiot? No. He corrected himself. Looking to Twitter for accuracy, information and unbiased facts would be a big mistake. That's not what it is.

Definitely should think before he tweets!  He's annoying and he sucks in Two and a half.

Well, Ashton won't be leaving Twitter altogether. He'll still have his secret account to have fun with.

Sure, it's gotten him in trouble before, but it seems that he likes being open no matter what.

Please with this guy. I am sooo tired of hearing about his personal life, who cares what he thinks anyway. Something about him has really turned me off in regards to liking anything he is innvolved in. I believe he needs to concentrate on not making his personal thoughts and life know to every one in this world. I think his character in the new sitcom is terrible and sickening. Please get a hair cut and clean your act up.

I hope celebs keep talking about the news on Twitter. Off the cuff stupid and/or terrible tweets might help cut down on some of the rampant hero worship of these people. I just hate when their comments are included at concerts or actually IN the news.
