Ashton Kutcher Defends Michael Phelps' Bong Hit

Apparently the 15 minutes Ashton Kutcher got last week wasn't enough for him because he's back in the press this week defending Michael Phelps and his need for weed.

"God forbid he hit a bong," Kutcher wrote on his Twitter account on Monday. "Go ask your 20-year-old kid what they did last weekend.

He added, "I'm not saying it was a smart move. But he doesn't need to be publicly outed for it. Whoever put the pic out is an a**!"

Phelps already issued a public apology saying: "I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me," he said.

"For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again."

Not that we're condoning his behavior, but he's been so disciplined for so long, he just needed to be a kid and experiment. It's not like he's waking up and getting baked every morning.

He made a mistake and apologized for it, everyone needs to cut him some slack. What are your thoughts?
