It only takes a minute to find hundreds of horrific tales about human trafficking. The most common are about girls, usually in their teens, who are kidnapped, held as slaves and forced into prostitution. Or they’re trying to escape an oppressive government or undeveloped nation, but then are “forced to have sex with 400-500 men to pay off $40,000 in debt for their passage.” Or they’re simply tricked, like this17-year-old from Japan. For the most part the traffickers are gangs, well organized and ruthlessly violent. The mafia is involved now. 500,000 women are annually trafficked into Western Europe. It’s a business worth billions.
So to fight back Ashton Kutcher has made a funny little video about his socks.
Hey, human traffickers. You guys better knock it off.
Demi Moore, husband Ashton Kutcher and their self-titled the Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA), which seeks to combat the sexual exploitation and slavery of minors, have come under fire this week over a campaign many consider to be inappropriately light and fluffy given the severity of the issue.
“This is what happens when celebrities do an issue divorced from the movement. Once you chose an issue and don’t do it in collaboration with people who have been doing this for a long time, this is what you end up with,” Norma Ramos, Executive Director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women told FOX.
“There is a general dumbing down that is going on and this is an example of dumbing down a social justice movement with the narrowest message possible.”
This really is a perfect example of how dumb and useless actors are. And vain. This does nothing. It’s only purpose is for these dolts to feel important. If someone is willing to buy a kidnapped teenager and keep her as a sex slave, they’re not gonna give a shit what Ashton Kutcher thinks, no matter how delightful his reaction is to smelly socks.
