Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was fired last night over failing to report a child sex abuse scandal.
If you haven’t kept up with this disgusting story… a Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky having anal sex with a 10-year-old boy in the showers at Penn State in 2002 and alerted Joe Paterno.
Paterno testified he was told Sandusky was “fondling or doing something of sexual nature” to the child and forwarded it on to the athletic director, Tim Curley. But in his statement, Paterno says he wasn’t given any details on the incident.
Paterno was fired last night after coaching there for 46 years, sparking all different reactions from fans and students, including one very ill-informed celebrity, Ashton Kutcher.
Check out what Kutcher said to infuriate fans on Twitter!
Ashton Kutcher caught wind of Paterno’s firing, tweeting, “How do you fire Joe Pa?”
Ashton jumped to Paterno’s defense without knowing he was fired for covering up the child molestation scandal at Penn State.
And to make things worse, Kutcher and Demi run a charity that attempts to eliminate child sex slavery.
Ashton received some very nasty tweets in response to his questioning of Paterno’s firing and later wrote, “As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case. I feel awful about this error. Won’t happen again.”
