Is Ashton Kutcher's new ad racist? TELL US!

May 03, 2012 14:41 IST

Ashton Kutcher adHollywood actor Ashton Kutcher received the wrath of Indian Americans as a series of new ads featuring him as an Indian man appeared online.

Developed by chip company Popchips, the $1.5 million ad series has Kutcher featured as four different men looking for love, one of them being 39-year-old Raj, a Bollywood producer.

Dressed in a tacky sherwani, Ashton appears a couple of shades

darker and sports a moustache.

HeĀ informs, in a faint Indian accent, that he fancies Kim Kardashian and has been a winner in a milking competition.

Following aggressive criticism from the Indian American community, the video and print ads have been pulled down from the company's official website and Facebook page.
