Ashton Kutcher teases Letterman about fatwa

New York: Like David Letterman, Ashton Kutcher isn’t afraid of a little fatwa humour.

Kutcher taped an appearance for Letterman`s talk show Wednesday, and the actor came on stage wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest printed with the phrase, ‘Not Dave.’

Last week, a contributor to a jihadist website posted a threat of violence against Letterman because the comedian had made fun of al-Qaida leaders on a previous show. Letterman, back from vacation Monday, played the threat for monologue laughs.

During Wednesday`s taping, Letterman asked Kutcher if his bowtie was bullet-proof. The actor replied that "you can`t be too careful" sitting next to a guy facing a threat.

Kutcher joined CBS’ ‘Two and a Half Men’ after Charlie Sheen was fired. He and Letterman predicted success for the revamped sitcom.
