“The commercial parodies dating-service ads, with Kutcher playing Raj, a 39-year-old “Bollywood producer” who’s looking for love. But the ad itself isn’t getting much love from Internet detractors, who are criticizing the brown makeup and stereotypical behavior he displays in the spot. New York writer and entrepreneur Anil Dash called for an apology from Popchips, Kutcher and others associated with the ad. “I think the people behind this Popchips ad are not racist. I think they just made a racist ad, because they’re so steeped in our culture’s racism that they didn’t even realize they were doing it,” Dash wrote.” Watch the clip and share your thoughts.
