Approximately 4.5 million people are working against their will for sex traffickers. Thorn has rescued 6,000 – and put 2,000 criminals in jail – since 2008.

Ashton Kutcher might be best known for starring in That 70’s Show and marrying Mila Kunis, but he’s a key figure to follow for numerous reasons. In 2008, the activist founded an organization with his ex-wife Demi Moore called Thorn. Thorn’s ultimate mission is to eliminate the sex trafficking and child exploitation over the internet. Since it’s debut, Thorn has helped rescue an astonishing 6,000 trafficking victims. In addition, 2,000 traffickers have been caught.

When Kutcher appeared in a recent interview on “The Today Show” with hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda to discuss the new season of his Netflix original series, “The Ranch”, he also promoted the organization. One of the tidbits he mentioned is that most sex trafficking victims have one thing in common: they’re targeted online. He said:

“We’re building digital tools to fight human trafficking. Basically, the purchase and commerce for human trafficking is happening online, just like everything else now, and so we’re building digital tools to fight back against it.”

Kutcher, who played Steve Jobs in a movie about the Apple entrepreneur, is partially responsible for founding the Thorn Task Force which searches the darkest corners of the internet to identify and eradicate traffickers. Some of the 20 tech companies that are part of the Force include Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo!, Snapchat, and Imgur.

Says Jim Pitkow, Chairman of the Thorn Technical Task Force:

“New innovations will always be adopted for both good and evil purposes. At Thorn, we tip the scales in favor of good by stopping exploitation and protecting our children.”

What Kutcher and his team have accomplished so far is heartening, but the businessman says he’s not stopping there. Thorn is working towards a truly ambitious humanitarian goal:

“Our next battle, my next commitment…I’m going to make a pledge that I’m going to eliminate child pornography from the internet,” said Kutcher.

According to anti-human trafficking group Polaris, The International Labor Organization estimates that 4.5 million people are currently working against their will for sex traffickers. And in 2014, the underground sex economy in 2014 was worth $290 million in Atlanta, Georgia, alone. Obviously, this is a conundrum that needs to be remedied. Fortunately, Thorn is helping to make that goal a reality.

  1. REAL MEN don’t let their wives star in movies that Exploit VULNERABLE children to say vulgar sexual things. Very disappointed in Mila. She stars in A Bad Moms Christmas where she’s a movie mom that has a movie child that is allowed to talk about hearing her mom and dad have sex and in the scene, the child actress says, “You said OM Fkg God” in reference to them having sex. WHO the heck in their right mind, as a real mom and alleged advocate for young girls and anti trafficking, would ever allow another mom’s YOUNG girl in a movie to say such VULGAR THINGS. Mila is yet another compromised sell out. Fake. No respect. And the parent of this movie child should never have another child. And the producer of A Bad Moms Christmas should be investigated for child abuse. What kind of monsters let a vulnerable child say dirty things like this in a movie? What kind of compromised actress would sacrifice someone else’s kid for their benefit for a few sick laughs from idiots who think this is funny???? What a sick woman. Screw you Ashton and Mila you total hipocrites. So done with your phony BS. You don’t care about young girls being trafficked. you traffic young girls in your movies that you make money off of. PHONY. Are damage control people reading this? Oh my. Look, just deal with it. It’s truth. You can spin it. Mila stars in a movie that uses a young girl to talk dirty. A Bad moms Christmas. WATCH IT. If you dont see the incredible sickness here, you are blind and willfully ignorant because you want to make money off children talking dirty and vulgar like this in movies. Shame on you.
