I am typically a fan of reading the Onion, but the tweet they posted last night was completely uncalled for and tasteless, especially towards a child...
The Onion apologizes after it posts vulgar tweet about Quvenzhane Wallis | Fox Newsfoxnews.com said:Satirical website The Onion has apologized following a tweet it sent out about 9-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis.
During Sunday’s Academy Awards broadcast, the official Onion Twitter account posted a harsh message about the “Beasts of the Southern Wild Star” that has the Twitterverse up in arms.
“Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c*nt, right? #Oscars2013,” the tweet read.
But users immediately came to Wallis’ defense, slamming the satirical site for the “joke.”
And though The Onion deleted the tweet shortly after posting it, plenty of users managed to get screen shots of the offending message.
