Country Music’s Mad At Ashton Kutcher

The Superficial | April 3, 2012 - 3:15 pm

For some reason, somebody thought it’d be a great idea to invite Ashton Kutcher, the guy who fucked over Demi Moore by banging 23-year-olds on their wedding anniversary, to Sunday’s American Country Music Awards to present Female Vocalist of the Year to Miranda Lambert which he did, but only after showing up in a ten-gallon hat and smirking the whole time. Naturally this didn’t go over well with Miranda who we already know will cut Chris Brown. Us Weekly reports:

Upon reflection, Labmert herself wasn’t amused by Kutcher’s schtick. The star, 28, tweeted late Monday: “Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I’m kinda wondering?”
Fellow country singer Justin Moore was more direct — and visceral. In the audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, he tweeted, “Seen Ashton kutcher at the acms tonight. What a douche! I don’t care for people making a mockery of the way country artists’ dress.”
Indeed, there was no love lost between Kutcher and most of the crowd during the show and at an afterparty, insiders reveal to Us.
“People were just like ‘why is he here?’ – he has nothing to do with country,” one attendee told Us “Nobody laughed at his dumb jokes, in fact he came off as rude. He didn’t mingle.”

As much as I hate country music, these are all good questions because I also hate Ashton Kutcher. Why was he there? Was he making fun of country music? Can someone who doesn’t look like Johnny Cash or a flamboyant youth pastor in an Affliction shirt get away with wearing a cowboy hat in today’s political climate? Was that last question aimed at Rascall Flatts? Would anyone care if it was? Is there going to be a punchline to this post? Will you be surprised if there isn’t? How much do I get paid for this job? Do you really want to know?
