Ashton Kutcher is under fire over resurfaced comments about Hilary Duff.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis have been under scrutiny since their character letters for Danny Masterson were made public last week. The pair attempted to apologise over the publication letters, but many believe they’re solely apologising because they got caught.
Following their ‘apology’ video, clips from early in Kutcher’s career have been doing the rounds on social media. The That 70s Show star has been called out again after making some incredibly ‘creepy’ remark about former Disney star Hilary Duff.
The Lizzie McGuire star was only 15 when Kutcher made the comments about her.

In the clip, Kutcher refers to the young actress as the girl “we’re all waiting for to turn 18”.
He said: “Hillary Duff is in Lizzie McGuire, she also has an album out, she’s going to be in a movie called Cheaper By the Dozen, and she’s one of the girls that we’re all waiting for to turn 18 – along with the Olsen twins.”
Viewers have called Kutcher ‘creepy’ and ‘disrespectful’ since the footage started trending on social media.
One said: “So Ashton Kutcher says in this old clip that he’s waiting for 15-year-old Hillary Duff, and the Olsen Twins, to turn 18. Creepy AF.”
Another added: “People saying it was normal don’t realize that it wasn’t actually normal. It was a few powerful men who could get away with anything.
“Their actions were giving permission to boys to act the same. The rest of us were disgusted and horrified but unable to do anything about it.”
