(Newser) – Ashton Kutcher has apologized after lashing into his neighbor with a profanity-laced online video, the Huffington Post reports. The actor vented after his "jackass" neighbor dared to start noisy construction on his house at 7am (which is perfectly legal in LA). After the neighbor shot back, calling Ashton “silly” and “out of line,” Kutcher backpedaled on Twitter: “It’s a joke people not news.”

Twitter got a lot of action throughout, with Ashton declaring, “This ass clown has another thing coming!” during his tantrum. Wife Demi Moore also Twittered throughout, standing by her man with updates like, “Calm and gentle baby you can pull out the paint gun later!” After calming down, Kutcher posted a second video saying, “I pledge to be more tolerant of my neighbor’s hammering.”
