For whatever reason, Ashton Kutcher showed up at the Academy of Country Music Awards to present the award for Female Vocalist of the Year which went to Miranda Lambert. But being Ashton Kutcher, he did this while wearing a ridiculous 10-gallon hat and a red blazer that looked like it was stitched together from two footballs and stood next to a guy in a green gilded blazer and hat holding a mug of beer.
Miranda Lambert didn’t think anything of it at the time but later took to Twitter to wonder, “Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I’m kinda wondering?”
Another country singer, Justin Moore, didn’t mince words. 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.”
Ashton eventually defended himself on Twitter, “I Am One Of The biggest country Music fans you’ve ever met. Wasn’t making fun at all.”
Granted, no one is sure how sincere that was because they couldn’t really see if he was snickering in front of his computer as he typed that out. Which he probably was.
Then again, some would say that this was karmic retribution for inviting Kiss.
