Ashton’s Assumption

For a long while there, Ashton was the hottest thing on Twitter. It’s really not a surprise considering had the reigning title as America’s favorite white boy. Pre his scandalous divorce of course. Before the divorce though, Ashton was already sliding off on the popularity pole. In the midst of the Joe Paterno/Sandusky/Penn State controversy, Ashton broadcasted his cluelessness for millions to see by claiming the firing of the head coach was classless. He clearly didn’t know that there were several child molestation cases at the root of Paterno’s firing. At first, his comments made him look insensitive and then once his followers started clowning him and he acknowledged that he didn’t know what the hell was going on, he looked tragically ignorant. This stunt was too serious to pretend it was Punk’d for Twitter. Ashton eventually put himself on a Twitter time out. Good move.
