Actor Ashton Kutcher has been an active Twitter user with more than 7 million followers. He recently attached an article The Village Voice printed regarding his Real Men campaign against human trafficking.
In the article, The Village Voice questioned the statistics and effectiveness of Kutcher's Real Men Don't Buy Girls campaign.
It seems like Kutcher didn't take the criticism very well as he attacked the paper for their escort ads, which are featured in the back of their issues.
Some of Kutcher's tweets, under the username @aplusk inluce, hey @villagevoice hows the lawsuit from the 15 year old victim who alleges you helped enslave them going?
He later tweeted, Hey @villagevoice if you ever want 2 have a productive conversation about how 2 end human trafficking as oppose to belittling my efforts lmk
The Village Voice didn't let this go unnoticed. They fired back from their @villagevoice Twitter account.
Wow, @aplusk having a Twitter meltdown! Hey Ahton, which part of this story is inaccurate? They also provided a link to the story printed in The Village Voice.
They later tweeted, Ok @aplusk, we'll bite. Tell us the hard facts you have collected. We'll fact-check for you.
Much of the problem came from the statistics Kutcher has been sharing.
In April he appeared on Piers Morgan's show and claimed that there are between 100,000 and 300,000 child sex slaves in the United States today.
The Village Voice did some investigating and found contradicting numbers. They reported that according to police data from the country's 37 biggest cities, the average number arrests for juvenile prostitution is 827 per year.
