A commercial featuring Ashton Kutcher for Popchips was yanked offline after offending viewers who felt the Two and a Half Men star’s portrayal of a Bollywood movie producer reeked of racism.
In the controversial spot parodying dating websites, Ashton plays four over-the-top roles looking for love; for the role of “Raj,” Ashton donned brown face and mocked an Indian accent.
He jokes he’s looking for a woman who’s “Kardashian hot … I would give that dog a bone.”
Many bloggers, and users of Twitter, YouTube and Facebook ripped the ad, accusing it of promoting stereotypes, leading to the spot being pulled.

The company said in a statement it was “created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone,” adding it hopes “people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended.”
