Ashton Kutcher and Popchips have learned a hard lesson recently — brown face isn't cool. Like, ever.
The company has pulled a silly viral video from the internet thanks to a whole lot of outrage over Kutcher's impersonation of a Bollywood producer named Raj.
Here to explain why the video was so offensive is indian comedian and actor Hasan Minhaj. According to him, the worst part wasn't even

The ladiez of The View never shy away from their hot topics, and today was no exception.
On this morning’s show, the women discussed Ashton Kutcher’s Popchips ad, which we mentioned got pulled for its offensive nature — whether intentional or unintentional.
Check out the women’s opinions (above)!!
They definitely bring up some good points, as Joy mentioned — why not just have an actual Indian actor play the role???
And perhaps the best point of the discussion — yet another gem from Joy — “why does Snooki pretend to be Italian?" Ha!
Truer words, friends. Truer words.

We know there are plenty of vegetarians out there and they aren't just eating bread every meal!
Many newcomers to the lifestyle rely too heavily on carbohydrates in their effort to avoid meat and don't know where to get their protein from.
A FitPerez reader who has recently become a vegetarian wants to avoid eating too many carbs and wrote to The Hot Plate's Amanda Garbutt for help, asking:
I've recently become a vegetarian and most of my meals are carb based. Do you have any recipe ideas for vegetarians that don't involve pasta, pizza or bread? I could really use a change!
According to Amanda:
Absolutely! There is such a myth that because you don’t eat meat the only thing left are carbs! It’s like all of a sudden all the protein disappeared.
Some great recipe ideas are vegetarian chilis with beans and veggie meat to ensure that you are getting tons of lean protein and iron. Other easy tricks start with the perfect sauce. Try picking up some pre-prepared Indian or Thai curry sauces. Make sure to check the label for low fat and sodium content, but they transform any simple dish into a masterpiece. Try sautéing chickpeas, spinach, cherry tomatoes with a Madras curry paste then just pour over a little whole grain rice for a complete meal. It is so important for vegetarians to watch their iron and protein intake!

Since Pink is such a huge star in the music world, we sometimes forget that her husband, Carey Hart, is a huge star in the extreme sport of motocross!
Together they're one of most unique celebrity couples and think the extremely talented duo are actually perfect for each other.
Pink recently supported her hubby at a press event in San Diego's Sycuan Casino, where Carey announced new riders and sponsors for the 2012 Hart & Huntington Racing team.
Children from the local tribe members of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation were ecstatic to meet the celebs and were lucky enough to get pictures with the married couple.

A Connecticut Indian tribe behind the Mohegan Sun casino is venturing into new territory to ensure its brand turns national.
CEO Mitchell Etess (pictured above) and The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority want to expand their brand from East to West no matter what it takes.
Though it's a risk since many Americans have decreased their gambling due to the economy, Mohegan's chief executive has hope and believes the brand is meaningful enough to succeed in opportunity.
