Ashton Kutcher: I'm Too Stupid to Manage a Twitter Account

1 After being slammed by the Twitter-sphere for defending Joe Paterno, actor Ashton Kutcher has turned his Twitter feed over to his management team to prevent future gross misstatements.

On his blog, Kutcher, 33, explained that his management team will review his tweets before they get published to make sure he doesn’t make any more gaffes.

Ashton wrote on Nov. 10, 2011:

“Up until today I have posted virtually everyone of my tweets on my own, but clearly the platform has become to big to be managed by a single individual. While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk I’m going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst Media to ensure the quality of it’s (sic) content.”

Ashton was widely criticized after tweeting his outrage that Penn State had fired longtime football coach Joe Paterno on Nov. 9, writing:

“How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.”

Kutcher claims he didn’t know the details of the Penn State pedophile scandal when he made the remark and apologized after learning details of the shocking child sex scandal at one of the nation’s most revered football schools.

Ashton, who has a history Twitter gaffes, was slammed most recently when he proclaimed Sept. 11 “the greatest day of the year” (because it was the start of football season).

Kutcher, who’s currently embroiled in his own sex scandal after allegedly cheating on his meal ticket wife Demi Moore, 48, with a bevy of 20-something beach babes, says he doesn’t want to take his 8 million Twitter fans for granted:

“A collection of over 8 million followers is not to be taken for granted.  I feel responsible for delivering an informed opinion and not spreading gossip or rumors through my twitter feed. My sincere apologies to anyone who I have offended. It was a mistake that I don’t think will happen again.”
