Ashton Kutcher is somehow the spokesperson for Popchips, a potato chip company, and he did an ad that was immediately pulled because people said it was racist because a white guy in browface in 2012 apparently still offends people. Anway, via a message on their website, the CEO of Popchips apologized.
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. – keith belling, founder and ceo of popchips
First off, who cares? Second of all, this CEO doesn’t use capitalization, so I really can’t tell if he’s serious or not. If he really wants to make amends he should shoot Ashton Kutcher in the face. Or do my laundry. I have to be honest, it’s really starting to pile up, man.
