PopChips has pulled thier “racist” Ashton Kutcher ad

May 3, 2012 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

The CEO and founder of PopChips posted a message last night apologizing to people who thought their ad with Ashton Kutcher playing an “Indian” character named Raj was racist, and then pulled Raj’s video from their youtube page.

“we received a lot feedback about the dating campaign parody we launched today and appreciate everyone who took the time to share their point of view.
our team worked hard to create a light-hearted parody featuring a variety of characters that was meant to provide a few laughs. we did not intend to offend anyone. i take full responsibility and apologize to anyone we offended.”

Well if the only intent was to be funny, then mission accomplished. Ashton Kutcher is the man of a thousand voices! And his Karl Lagerfeld character really takes a shot at the 80-year-old fashion designers whom I being led to believe are always on dating websites. Ashton Kutchers biting satire isn’t afraid to step on a few toes!
