ASHTON KUTCHER CRITICIZED FOR WEARING "BROWNFACE": ASHTON KUTCHER is catching heat for donning "brownface" in a new video ad campaign for PopChips. One of Ashton's characters in the ad is an Indian guy named "Raj". And to portray him, Kutcher put on brown makeup and adopted the classic fake Indian accent.

Naturally, not everyone is down with the brown, and many are calling it racist. The snack company issued a statement, saying the ad campaign "was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone" and that they "hope people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended."

Racist, amusing, or a poor decision on his part? We Report, You Decide ...

VANESSA WILLIAMS VS. 'TODDLER' MOM!!! WHO YOU GOT???: Actress and former Miss America VANESSA WILLIAMS went off on the "Toddlers & Tiaras" moms in an as yet un-aired interview with ANDERSON COOPER.  And one of the moms has already fired back.

When asked by Cooper about the child pageant world, Vanessa replied that forcing children to enter pageants is not something she would ever do. "When the child is screaming and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t feel like doing it.’ When they are using special juice to get them hyped ... that’s not my world and I would never have my kids do that.”

The comments didn't go over well with Wendy Dickey -- aka Paisley's mom. Dickey retorted, quote, "Posing nude and having an abortion is 'not my world' and I would never have my kids do that . . . so easy on the judging Vanessa!" This looks like it's about to get ugly!!!
