Ashton Kutcher made a series of ads for Popchips, but one of them in particular has now been pulled. The ad featured Kutcher in brown makeup portraying an Indian man named Raj. I'm not sure why the producers would think it was wrong to have Ashton in makeup and portray a black man but not think the same thing applied to portraying an Indian man.

Popchips, of which Ashton owns a portion of the company says the ads were meant to be funny and not a stereotype.
