Kutcher, Walmart Face Off on Twitter Over Canton Food Drive
CANTON, Ohio — “Two and a Half Men” star Ashton Kutcher has gotten into a spat with Walmart on Twitter.
It was after he learned of a food drive for workers at the Canton Walmart location.
It was reported earlier this week that employees at the store were collecting amongst themselves, encouraged to place donated items in bins to help provide Thanksgiving meals to other associates in need.
Kutcher tweeted the following in reaction to the story:
Walmart is your profit margin so important you can’t Pay Your Employees enough to be above the poverty line? http://t.co/YT8QDmyJ8G

Walmart tweeted back:
.@aplusk It’s unfortunate that an act of human kindness has been taken so out of context. We’re proud of our associates in Canton.
