Ashton Kutcher Apologizes

Ooops, Paterno Did What?!

11/10/2011 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1109_ashton_kutcher_BN_01
Ashton Kutcher
attacked the Penn State Board of Trustees for firing Joe Paterno last night -- but there was one little problem, seems Ashton didn't know about Joe's misdeeds.

Right after Paterno got the chop, Kutcher tweeted, "How do you fire Jo Pa?  #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."

Almost immediately, Kutcher was attacked by people informing the actor about the situation -- writing things like, "F**k you. He covered up child rape you sick, geriatric f**k."

Roughly 30 minutes later, Kutcher removed his original tweet -- and replaced it with, "Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet! Didn't have full story. #admitwhenYoumakemistakes."

He later continued, "This is an insane story, I just heard paterno was fired, getting the rest of the story now... Wow."

He added, "As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case."

Kutcher also replied to people who called him an idiot -- saying, "I am" -- adding, "Honestly just had half facts man my bad ... I need 2b more responsible 4 my voice."

At least he apologized and admitted he should have gotten all the facts before running his mouth. He is only human.

Now if only he'd admit 2 1/2 men was a mistake as well, lol. Sorry Ashton but we want Charlie back.

Trying to look smart when he is clearly an airhead. If you are going to make a comment at least understand what you are commenting on!

I can't believe this guy is still getting gigs on Hollywood. Ashton has nothing to offer. Joe Paterno is an old sack of garbage. But, who cares about Penn State or Ashton Kutcher? Penn State seems to be mirroring the Catholic Church. Next....

Not a big fan of this guy, but admitting he had only half the facts was honourable and the right thing to do... Good for him.

oh my god, as if none of you have never made a mistake before? You just don't have 8.2 million people watching. Yes he should have known more before commenting on such a major topic, but give the guy a break, he admitted he didn't know and apologized so get over it.

let's see, as being one of the most popular people on twitter and he couldn't find out first what happened? try less self promotion and more fact checking.

How could he not know. It's only been on every media source available for days. He's just back pedaling.

These "celebs" literally phone it in. They pick causes that they think will make them look good and bring in more money without examining the facts or even giving a crap for that matter.


Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Usher all performed for the Gadhafi family and Hilary Swank made a personal appearance for a war criminal.
