Fails of the Week: Ashton Kutcher, Amar’e Stoudemire and More


Tracey Ford / May 5, 2012

At some point this week, we’ve all turned on the news or checked out a blog, and thought: “Wow, what a fail!” From Ashton Kutcher’s insensitive Pop Chips ad to Amar’e Stoudemire’s tantrum, here are the fails of the week.

Who: Ashton Kutcher and Popchips
Fail: Airing a commercial that featured Ashton mocking Indians in brownface and dressed in a fake Indian outfit.
Redemption: Although the company’s CEO has issued an apology, they should air a new commercial that includes positive representations of multiple races as opposed to mocking them and appearing racist.
