Ashton Kutcher's Extreme Misinformation
The fatal tweet for Ashton Kutcher's Twitter account read, "How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste." The actor had yet to gather all the facts and was apparently unaware of Paterno's involvement in a child abuse case. Kutcher attempted to back pedal as he learned the facts, but still decided to ultimately turn his account over to a professional publicity manager.
Individuals and businesses alike should refrain from sharing opinions on current events if they don't have all the facts. Doing thorough research before chiming in is always wise, even if it means you're not the first to comment to a particular incident.
