Some Twitter users defend The Onion’s misogynistic ‘c**t’ joke!/andyorin/status/305917426032316416

Most Twitter users were outraged by The Onion’s tweet calling Quvenzhané Wallis the C-word. But a small number of tweeters defended and/or rationalized The Onion’s tasteless joke:

But the joke is that she’s innocent. That’s the joke. RT @adamserwer: Far and away the biggest fail of the night:

@catswithbats I saw and it was tasteless – but that’s the Onion’s thing. Satire and sometimes tasteless is their thing. #shrug

The Onion is not “the media”, it’s a parody/satire site which contains no real factual news, just interpretations of it.

The Onion joke is a joke ABOUT Oscar bitchiness, not about Quvenzhané Wallis. Nobody actually thinks a 9 year old is a cunt. That’s the joke

Yall do realize The Onion isn’t real, right? Its satire. Keep calm and take a joke.

@embeedub @theonion Ummmm, I think that’s the joke.

@lennysyankees You don’t understand the satire. A 9 year-old can’t be a c**t. That’s the joke. They didn’t say it to her face.

@rachmoonnn Well I disagree. That’s the joke, it being ridiculous to refer to a child as that.

@kellyanncosgrov Fair enough. Don’t agree (I also thought Deveney’s Bindi comments were fine, FWIW) but understand your position.

— John B (@johnb78) February 25, 2013

Man, everyone upset is going to feel really dumb when they find out the Onion is satire.

Talk about missing the point.


Tasteless: The Onion calls 9-year old actress Quvenzhané Wallis a c**t; Update: Tweet is deleted

If you can’t say Quvenzhané Wallis’ name, you’re probably a disrespectful racist

The Onion crosses the line with pathetic, unfunny Chris Kyle ‘humor’

Shameful: The Onion reports John McCain’s onstage ‘suicide’ as breaking news

Scorching hypocrisy: Showboater in chief accuses GOP of grandstanding!/kathrynlopez/status/383680235134529536

Now that the Senate has voted to fund Obamacare, President Petulance is free to be his sore-winner self. At a press conference this afternoon, despite getting his way, Obama once again blamed the GOP for making him have to justify his increasingly ill-informed policy decisions. You see, opposition to the Affordable Care Act isn’t a product of principles; it’s “grandstanding”:!/GDebenedetti/status/383679817477943296

No, real people are sick and tired of this president’s constant temper tantrums and childish theatrics.!/Vet55sez/status/383681611482820608!/penguinponders/status/383679959459319808

Of course not. It’s brave and wise when Obama stomps his feet and rails against the GOP rather than taking what Americans need into consideration. If he were truly committed to working for real people, he’d swallow his massive pride and admit that he’s not fit to be our leader.!/Jeffrey_PHR/status/383682548951285760!/RoughRider4ever/status/383685465640931329

Sit down, Mr. President. Show’s over.

Wife Texts Husband She Brought A Dog Home While The Pic Shows A Coyote, And He Seriously Freaks Out

If you ever find an abandoned puppy which you want to take home, make sure it’s not something else. For example, a coyote.

This is exactly how Justin Bogh felt when his wife Kayla Eby sent him a pic of a “cute little dog” she “found” outside which was obviously a coyote. His reaction was priceless. Justin even jokingly asked for a divorce.

Turns out it was just a prank by his wife. Kayla, a preschool teacher from Seaside, Oregon, created the pic in Photoshop, and now their conversation is taking the internet by storm. You can read it below.
