Ashton Kutcher has used Twitter to warn bosses at US airline American Air that their ads are running on a website that offers escort services.

The actor, who is fronting a campaign to end sex slavery in America and the rest of the world and bring the ringleaders to to justice, went public with his findings on Friday.

He tweeted, "Hey @AmericanAir are you aware that you are advertising on a site that supports the Sale of Human Beings."

The airline's bosses responded minutes later via Twitter writing, "We will address this IMMEDIATELY. Can you please DM (direct message) us detail of the site, including a link?"

Earlier in the week, Ashton had targeted editors of New York newspaper The Village Voice, accusing them of "facilitating the sale of human beings" by publishing advertisements for escorts.

In a series of posts he wrote, "Hey Village Voice... maybe you can help me... How much $ did your 'escorts' in you (sic) classifieds on Backpage make last year?

"How many of your girls selling themselves in your classifieds are you doing age verification on? Find another way to justify that your property facilitates the sale of human beings... If you ever want to have a productive conversation about how to end human trafficking as opposed to belittling my efforts LMK (let me know)."

Last year, Ashton and his wife Demi Moore launched the DNA foundation (Demi and Ashton Foundation) to help raise awareness and bring an end to human trafficking.
