After discovering his mistaked, Kutcher Tweeted again, saying "Heard Joe was fired, fully recant previous tweet!. Didn’t have full story. #admitwhenYoumakemistakes.”
However the rants against Kutcher didn't stop. So he went back to Twitter, and Tweeted “As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case." Kutcher and his wife, Demi Moore, established the Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA Foundation) to help end child sex slavery.
As a result of the FUBAR, he also decided to take a break from Twitter. He Tweeted two more things: "As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won't happen again." and "Twitter Management http://post.ly/3rk2N."
Those are apparently the last two Tweets until his Twitter Management takes effect.
The link in his final Tweet links to a blog post, where he explained what happened:
So, he's now going to turn the management of his Twitter feed over to his team at Katalyst. He still said he's going to Tweet, though, so it sounds like whatever he Tweets will be "verified" by Katalyst before hitting the Internet.
It was, in fact, just a mistake, and not the first time someone high profile has "Tweeted out of turn." It can serve as a cautionary tale, and not just for celebrities, either.
His final thoughts in his blog post? "My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. It was a mistake that will not happen again."
