The man who helped make Twitter famous has decided to stop tweeting. While Joe Paterno and the Penn State sexual abuse scandal has dominated headlines, apparently Ashton Kutcher doesn’t read the news. Upon hearing that the legendary coach was fired, Kutcher tweeted,
“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.:

Moments later hashtags #ThingsAshtonKutcherdoesntknow and #AshtonKutcherisanidiot began trending, and the Two and a Half Men star admitted he was not familiar with the story.

Kutcher defended his mistake, “As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case,” Kutcher tweeted.

Ironically, Kutcher and wife Demi Moore founded the DNA Foundation, which fights child sex slavery. Still, after the back lash of his Tweets, @Aplusk revealed in a blog post he will no longer be tweeting.

“I feel responsible for delivering an informed opinion and not spreading gossip or rumors through my Twitter feed,” Kutcher wrote in a blog post entitled “Twitter Management” on Thursday. “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.”

Reiterating that he’s “truely (sic) sorry if I offended anyone,” Kutcher explains although he will still post 140-character updates, he is turning the management of the feed over to his team at Katalyst Media “to ensure the quality of its content.”
