Ashton Kutcher Posts ‘I’m With Stupid’ Photo on Twitter After Joe Paterno Gaffe

Twitter, Ashton Kutcher

A picture is worth a thousand words. Ashton Kutcher posted the image of himself posing with an “I’m with stupid” sign after his insensitive and uninformed remarks about fired Penn State coach Joe Paterno. The tweet that stirred the controversy read:

“How do you fire JoPa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.”

Many criticized Kutcher for defending the 84-year-old Paterno for not doing enough after allegedly knowing that his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually abusing children.

Hours earlier, Kutcher had announced that he was turning his Twitter account over to his management team. Then, after posting the “stupid” picture, he tweeted, “I’m just trying to be a good person.”

The star of “Two and a Half Men” apologized further on his personal blog:

“I am truly sorry. And moreover am going to take action to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more deeply saddened by the events at Penn State. My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended, it was a mistake that will not happen again.”

Kutcher, and wife Demi Moore founded the DNA Foundation, which fights to end child sex slavery.
