The Internet continues to grow increasingly inhospitable to Ashton Kutcher. After drumming up controversy over tweets about Joe Paterno last November and the cryptic crumbling of his marriage as seen through the same social site, now the Two and a Half Men star has created a ruckus over a character he plays in a new viral ad for Popchips. Kutcher donned brownface to play Raj, an Indian Bollywood producer. After numerous complaints about the stunt, the company has taken down the ad. Check out the ad and Popchips’ statement below.

Regardless of what the public thinks, Ashton Kutcher has a stamp of approval to portray late Apple founder Steve Jobs from at least one inside source. According to TMZ, Steve Wozniak, Jobs’ partner in founding the computer dynasty, is A-OK with the casting news.
“The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he’s ‘hot’ right now,” said Wozniak, “but I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner. And I’m glad that he’s on board. I think he’ll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject.”
The indie biopic, from Swing Vote director Joshua Michael Stern, goes simply by the name Jobs and will reportedly follow the tech impresario’s transition “from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple.” It’s set to begin filming next month. READ FULL STORY
You knew it was only a matter of time. Charlie Sheen finally stopped holding his tongue on the issue of his former sitcom Two and a Half Men. He called into TMZ Live yesterday and said bluntly, “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending they’re not completely adrift.”
Moments later, Sheen clarified that he wasn’t personally attacking Kutcher: “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.” Admitting he had been watching the show, he added, “It’s kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking good care of it.” Check out more of Sheen’s cutting remarks against the writers in the clip after the jump.

If you always sort of suspected that Ashton Kutcher must have been raised by gorillas (how else would you explain his current hair, tweeting habits, or Killers?) then watching last night’s episode of Two and a Half Men would have felt immensely satisfying. But how was it for fans of the show who discovered, alongside Kutcher’s character Walden, that he was brought up with a gorilla (named… Magilla) until he was four-years-old? READ FULL STORY
It’s Monday night…you know what that means. Time for the Internet to weigh in on Ashton Kutcher’s fourth go-round on Two and a Half Men.

For whatever reason — Love of the show? Shirtless Kutcher? Morbid curiosity? — people are still watching. READ FULL STORY
