Ashton Kutcher will no longer directly communicate with his more than 8 million Twitter followers.
The actor made the announcement in a statement on his blog following his controversial Tweet supporting former Penn State head football coach, Joe Paterno.
"Up until today, I have posted virtually every one of my tweets on my own," Ashton said. "While I will continue to express myself through @Aplusk, I'm going to turn the management of the feed over to my team at Katalyst as a secondary editorial measure, to ensure the quality of its content."
He adds, "My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. It was a mistake that will not happen again."
The actor caused an uproar Wednesday night when he tweeted, "How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste."
He later admitted to not knowing the reason why Paterno was fired -- for failing to go to the police when he found out a football staffer was allegedly sexually abusing young boys.
