Ashton Kutcher’s Cinco De Mayo Commercial Also Deemed Racist
Ashton Kutcher came under fire earlier this week for starring in a commercial as an Indian man in brownface, complete with accent and silk saree.
The popchips ad campaign was halted after civil rights advocates called it tacky and racist.
Unfortunately, neither Kutcher nor the snack food company learned their lesson.
Last night, the brand unveiled an advertisement featuring the actor dressed as a stereotypical Mexican, promoting new taco-flavored popchips. It was removed from the airwaves within an hour.
“We’re 0-for-2, but I’m positive fans are going to like my next character,” a confident Kutcher told OMGG.com. “I’ll be dressed as an Asian woman who can’t drive well because she’s eating popchips behind the wheel.”
