Ashton Kutcher 640x360

A+, a website co-founded by actor Ashton Kutcher, has been caught cheating. Accusations of plagiarism arose when it was found that some articles were lifted word-for-word and a few with only minor changes from Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and Cracked, according to the Daily Dot.

The site was initially launched in 2011 and is intended to be a resource for “virtual social storytelling to create a positive change in the world.” Kutcher has also invested in the sites Sype, Flipside and Foursquare and regularly promotes A+ on Twitter. It’s “50 Tattoos Inspired By Books You Grew Up With As A Kid” was uncannily similar t Buzzfeed’s “50 Incredible Tattoos Inspired by Books From Childhood.”

The suspected content was removed from the site, and Evan Beard of A+ told the Daily Dot, “We take these allegations very seriously and are looking into them. Respecting the Intellectual Property of others is very important to us.”
