PopChips has pulled thier “racist” Ashton Kutcher ad

By brendon May 03, 2012 @ 12:42 PM

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!

    1.) When did “Indian” become a “race”? What race are they?

    2.) I doubt Ashton Kutcher had ANY input to the creation of these ads….

    3.) I LOVE a well-crafted controversial publicity stunt……

    4.) I ALREADY love Salt and Vinegar Pop Chips……

    ….why can’t they run an ad where a nude Selena Gomez struts out of the shower and proclaims…

    ….”You’ll need Pop Chips if you want to pop me”….

    They think we are stupid. Make ad. Pull ad. Create controversy. Get a million hits on you tube. Save money by not buying tv time. All they need is a douche to do the ad and they got the best.

    I live for the struggle
    I yearn for the fight
    I live to poop
    with all of my might.

    I eat and I poop
    then I eat some more
    I’ll poop and I’ll poop
    ’til it covers the floor.
