Twitter #fail as Ashton Kutcher Has an “Oops” Moment

Ashton Kutcher sent a Tweet tonight to his 8 million followers: As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.

His words were damage control after he sent out a Tweet an hour earlier, condemning Penn State for firing Joe Paterno. How do you fire Jo Pa?  #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.

As it turned out, Kutcher said he sent the initial Tweet, which has since been deleted, before being aware of the full details of the child rape scandal. honestly just had half facts man my bad, one Tweet said, as he posted irate and expletive filled comments from some of his followers.

The original Tweet struck many as odd given Kutcher’s fight against child sex trafficking, a signature issue for him and Demi Moore.
