Uber Investor Ashton Kutcher: Why Not Smear A ‘Shady Journalist’?

Actor Ashton Kutcher, an Uber investor, weighed in Wednesday on a report that a senior executive with the company suggested smearing journalists who wrote critically of Uber.

Kutcher has invested in Uber through his venture capital firm, A-Grade.

In addition to Uber, Kutcher invested in and co-founded a viral content website, A+, that has itself been accused of questionable practices. A Daily Dot investigation found A+ republished material from a range of websites like Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post without credit.
