Ashton Kutcher Apologizes

Ooops, Paterno Did What?!

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."

Below is Lilbit's posted comment. To this I say, pull your head out of yer butt. His outstanding contributions mean nothing because this outrageous crime event and how he behaved show ZERO character in him.

Children were being raped. Yet it kept happening and Sandusky had the key to the candy store and could help himself all the time. Who cares if Paterno was a God at the college........a god who knew kids were being raped and did nothing to stop it. Telling one person and then walking away from the situation is not enough...he had an obligation as an adult, something we all do if we see a child being raped. If you see a kid being raped you rush in and stop it at once. Then you call police. You don't mosey on home and tell your dad and then tell Paterno who does very little. How these men could sleep at night is beyond me. The whole thing is disgusting.

lilbit says.........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.

DA Closed books on first Sandusky investigation in 1998.
Sandusky forced out in 1999 but allowed to say he retired. Paterno knew at that time somthing was going on, as well as other higher ups. Sandusky only told not to bring boys to the school...in other words "go molest them off campus"
After 2002 incident, Sandusky still hanging around at school with little boys and nobody did a thing.
DA that investigated the 1998 charges goes missing in 2005, but his computer and hard drive are found destroyed in a river. Go figure...
Now FBI is investigating...much bigger than a football team or game...
A lot more to come in the near future.

Unfortunate that Ashton Tweeted before knowing all the facts but his response upon learning the situation seemed genuine.
No harm done and thoughtful response by Kutcher.
