Ashton Kutcher's a moron

So, Ashton Kutcher tweeted his outrage about Penn State firing Paterno for failing to report the rape of a child by his assistant coach.

“How do you fire Jo Pa?” Kutcher wrote. “#insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.”

It turns out that Kutcher and Demi Moore did a series of public service announcements saying that "real men" don't have sex with child prostitutes who are victims of human trafficking. Which seems very strange. Does he think that patronizing sex-trafficked child prostitutes is so common that a PSA would make any sense?

Kutcher falsely claimed that 100,000 to 300,000 American children were "sold into sexual slavery" every year. The Village Voice attacked this claim. According to them, Kutcher was using a report that there were between one and three hundred thousand minors "at risk" of sexual exploitation. He took this and falsely claimed that that number of children had actually been "sold into sexual slavery". The real numbers are bad enough, but it's hundreds, not hundreds of thousands.

Kutcher responded by accusing The Village Voice of promoting child prostitution and called on advertisers to withdraw their ads from the newspaper.

And now he's defending Paterno. Does he think Paterno is a "real man"?
