Ashton Kutcher, dressed as an Indian man, got a lot of attention in an advertisement for “Popchips,” playing the part of a man looking for a date. The spokesman for the company noted that it was “created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone.” The ad has been pulled.
Kutcher, 34, was in brown makeup, as the character “Raj,” a Bollywood producer that was looking for love. He was also a stoner and southern boy. The stoners and people from the south have yet to file a protest.
