The move comes less than 12 hours after Kutcher came under fire from his 8 million followers for his tweet slamming Penn State’s board of trustees for firing legendary football coach Joe Paterno.
Kutchers’ followers erupted with angry tweets criticizing Kutcher for his insensitivity toward child sex abuse. 30 minutes later Kutcher deleted the tweet, and then claimed he wasn’t aware of the sex scandal involving one of Paterno’s former coaches.
Kutcher admitted he wrote the tweet impulsively without bothering to research why Paterno was fired.
“Up until today I have posted virtually every one of my tweets on my own, but clearly the platform has become [too] big to be managed by a single individual,” Kutcher wrote on his blog.
He added: “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 content.”
Translation: he’s an impulsive narcissist who can’t stay away from his source of supply, but he also doesn’t want to lose his cushy ‘Two And A Half Men’ gig on CBS. So he will ask his management team to babysit his tweets for him rather than delete his Twitter, which he can’t live without.
