One day after Uber’s SVP of business suggested his company spend millions of dollars hiring people to investigate the private lives of its most vocal critics in the media, actor/entrepreneur Ashton Kutcher, an investor of Uber, defended the company on Twitter.

“What is so wrong about digging up dirt on shady journalist? [sic]” Kutcher asked, tagging PandoDaily, TechCrunch, and Uber in the tweet.

He goes on to say “We’re all public figures now!”

Kutcher, who founded his VC firm A-Grade Investments in 2010, has invested in several companies besides Uber, including Secret, BloomThat, Airbnb, Fab, and Flipboard.
