'Racist' Kutcher ad pulled offline

An online advert featuring Ashton Kutcher as an Indian man has been pulled offline after viewers called it racist.

The images and video for Popchips feature the 34-year-old Two And A Half Men star in brown make-up portraying a Bollywood producer named Raj who is "looking for love".

They were removed from YouTube and Facebook after being criticised online.

Other videos featuring Kutcher as a stoner, tattooed Southerner and pasty fashionista remain online.

A spokeswoman for Popchips says the dating parody featuring the four characters was "created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone".

She added that the company hopes "people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended".

A spokeswoman for Kutcher has not returned messages seeking comment.
