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."

JOE PATERNO HAS 16 GRANDCHILDREN, I WONDER IF SOMEONE DID THIS TO ONE OF THEM HE WOULD JUST TELL HIS SUPERIORS,WHICH AT PENDOPHILE STATE, HE HAS NONE, HE SHOULD GET READY FOR MASSIVE SUITS. AND KUCHNER IS JUST AN IDIOT.

Dont you idiots have anything better to do than to bash EVERYBODY??? Havent any of you trolls voiced your opinion about something you didnt have all the facts on yet? Get off of the Ash bash, ok? I'm from PA and heres the deal, Joe Paterno is beloved by many students, faculty and fans in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. Joe DID report the abuse but the person he reported it to did NOTHING, ok?
I dont think he should have lost his job just because he did not tell police personally. The guy he reported it to should have done that. Penn State is just terrified now that the school image will be tarnished - and if it is its not because of JoePA. Its a crying shame a mans exemplary career is brought down because the actions of that sick prick Sandusky. You want to blame someone and hate someone for all of this . . . . .Sandusky is the man who brought all this on Penn State, a great college. There needs to be much tougher laws on child abuse all throughout this country. Its disgraceful.

Hey, ease up. He heard some news, had a reaction to it, verbalized his reaction, got the rest of the story, changed his tune and apologized.

What more do you want from the guy?

Ass-ton, you are truly a moron. Just keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than speaking and removing all doubt.

If he didn't know the obvious facts behind the Paterno situation he isn't as smart as he wants people to think he is. He knew...just couldn't man up.

Apparantly he still doesn't have the whole story as no one does. Jo Pa did his job by reporting the second hand information that was given to him.

Hopefully he learned a lesson from this. It's not the end of the world, we all make mistakes. Thankfully his "mistake" was far less harmful than Paterno's
