Has Ashton Kutcher gone too far this time?

The Two and a Half Men star's latest ad for Popchips, featuring him as an Indian Bollywood producer, has been pulled after stirring up controversy.

The CEO of Popchips, Keith Belling, released the following 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."

Another rep, who refers to the ad as "a fun online campaign," adds, "At popchips we embrace all types of shapes, flavors and colors, and appreciate all snackers, no matter their race or ethnicity. We hope people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended."
