Because he’ll endorse literally anything that anyone asks him to, Ashton Kutcher appears in a new ad for Popchips. Unfortunately for the Kutch, you won’t be seeing the commercial on TV anytime soon, due to its racially insensitive content.
It’s the part where Ashton rocks brown face make-up to play an Indian Bollywood producer that’s rubbed people the wrong way, but the mincing, gay fashion designer also has controversy potential. Personally, I find the ad offensive, not because it’s racist, but because it’s so stupid. Is this Ashton trying to show off his acting range? Every accent that he attempts here is awful. But more importantly – what the hell does this ad have to do with chips?! Where’s Don Draper when you need him?
