Ashton Kutcher’s Offensive Brownface Ad Pulled [VIDEO]

Popchips, the delicious snack food partially funded by Ashton Kutcher, has pulled the offensive Raj ad. If you didn’t see it, consider yourself lucky. Ashton donned brown face and a bad accent that was meant to be funny, and it wasn’t. It failed.

One observer noted that the people behind Popchips were probably not actually racist, they just failed to realize that what they were doing was racist. “I can’t imagine I have to explain this to anyone in 2012, but if you find yourself putting brown makeup on a white person in 2012 so they can do a bad ‘funny’ accent in order to sell potato chips, you are on the wrong course.” Look at your life, people. Look at your choices.

One comedian, Hasan Minaj, made his own video in response. It contains some colorful language. It’s NSFW, and not safe for delicate ears. You have been warned!

By the way, the rest of the ad campaign is intact. And Popchips are still delicious.
