Pop Chips CEO Keith Belling is apologizing for a new viral ad featuring comedian Ashton Kutcher.
In the controversial video, Kutcher dresses up in brown face to play a Bollywood producer. The video has received criticism for racially insensitive, prompting Mr. Belling to pull the ad and issue this statement:
“We received a lot feedback about the dating campaign parody we launched today and appreciate everyone who took the time to share their point of view.
Our team worked hard to create a light-hearted parody featuring a variety of characters that was meant to provide a few laughs. We did not intend to offend anyone. I take full responsibility and apologize to anyone we offended.”
