Ashton Kutcher Upset By Laura Ling's Conviction

Ashton Kutcher is more identified with punking than politicking, but he’s been doing a lot more of the latter recently.

The actor went on a Twittering rampage Monday in response to the conviction and subsequent 12-year prison camp sentence handed to Laura Ling, the sister of ex-View co-host Lisa Ling.

Ling and colleage Euna Lee were convicted in the country’s highest court of crimes in a trial the official Korean Central News Agency said “confirmed the grave crime they committed against the Korean nation and their illegal border crossing.”

Wrote the frenetic Twitter scribe Kutcher: “This should be a national crisis … I say it’s special ops time … if we can save that Captain from pirates we can save these journalist.”

He continued with the passionate stream of consciousness ramblings: “We have to demand that something be done. This is our country, it’s our military … Bottom line, China needs to step up! … Bottom line, China needs to step up! … OK Plan B. Leverage political contacts.”
