Kutcher posted a tweet in support of Joe Paterno last night not knowing why the Penn State football coach had been fired. He thought the coach had been fired over a poor football season and had no idea the real reason for his firing. Well that tweet landed him in hot water and he received a ton of angry comments responding to the tweet so he’s decided to hand his Twitter page over to his team at Katalyst to handle.
“A collection of over 8 million followers is not to be taken for granted. I feel responsible to deliver informed opinions and not spread gossip or rumors through my twitter feed. While I feel that running this feed myself gives me a closer relationship to my friends and fans I’ve come to realize that it has grown into more than a fun tool to communicate with people. While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk, I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst as a secondary editorial measure, to ensure the quality of its content. My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. It was a mistake that will not happen again.” Ashton announced on Wednesday.
What’s the point of having a Twitter page if your not the one tweeting on it? Yeah he made a bad tweet about something he knew nothing about, but when he found out the facts he obviously felt bad and took back his tweet. Check out the rest of his statement here.
