Ashton Kutcher should learn to keep his big mouth shut – and his twittering on a leash – since he was forced, once again to delete a controversial tweet. It’s simple enough even for you, Ashton, before you comment inform yourself – so you will at least be aware of the issues involved in what you are commenting upon.
Ashton deleted his controversial tweet Wednesday night protesting the firing of Joe Paterno, claiming he hadn’t known about the sex-abuse scandal at Penn State when he sent it off.
“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste,” Kutcher sent to his 8 million Twitter followers.
Ashton was lambasted by followers with a volley of insults, many of them extremely vicious, blasting him for defending the 84-year-old coach, who is under fire for covering up former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky’s alleged sexual abuse of young boys.
Once the shit hit the fab Ashton was quick to backtrack tweeting: “Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet!” he wrote. “Didn’t have full story.”
The scholar later deleted that message as well adding: “As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.”
He also made this pledge: “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.”
On Sept. 11, Ashton also backtracked after calling it “the greatest day of the year,” because it was the start of football season. Somehow he forgot that 911 symbolizes more than football to most THINKING people.
