Ashton Kutcher Apologizes

Ooops, Paterno Did What?!

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

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."

Fair enough. I think that sort of thing happens all the time with celebrities on twitter but we mostly don't hear about it because they retract the tweet and apologise within an hour or two. I think it is a tell-tale sign of a celebrity understanding social media when they retract stuff. Everyone gets stuff wrong on social media but celebrities have a great deal more people to point it out, so when they don't retract and apologise they look especially bad, like they're saying they're so great they don't get stuff wrong. I don't see why he shouldn't comment on anything, everyone else does.

It is that good old boy mentality that has screwed up our country and keeps it screwed up! Child rapists are pure evil Sandusky is worse than Satan....I think that stupid grad student should suffer too....this look away mentality is what is so wrong with the world. WAKE UP PEOPLE AND TAKE A STAND!!!! On another note boycott ALL THINGS KARDASHIAN AS WELL!!! They are evil too!!

Typical, when someone pulls an "Obama" not knowing all the facts before commenting...So much for a Beer Summit.

We can vote Obama out in 2012, and no*****ch how terrible Two and a Half Men. Either way both are doomed to be cancelled and out in the near future!

I guess he can't read a newspaper, news story, or listen to real news - to know what has been going on for almost a week now... What a dumbass! And even dumber to comment.... Stupid ignorant ass!

How can one be a Paterno fan and NOT a Penn State fan? The scandal is days old. Kutcher is NOT a Penn State fan or he would have known. Idiot.

LOL the funniest part is Ashton Kutcher himself is in here trying to defend himself, no one in the right mind can have anything positive to say about that guy, he looks like a bird with some sort of john lennon/jesus complex, his wifes arms look like ribbons of decaying flesh LOL I bet demi doesnt let him touch her anymore, his life is over.
