The Onion apologizes for Quvenzhane Wallis tweet

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Oscar host Seth McFarlane has been derided for his lowbrow hosting effort at the gala ceremony last night, but the Onion managed to go way lower.

      In a tweet during the broadcast, somebody at the satirical webzine described nine year-old best actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis using a word that rhymes with 'stunt'.

      Right about now, McFarlane and his writers are probably thanking YHWH that we've stopped talking about all those Jew jokes.

      Ick. That's clearly a form of child abuse, and possibly sexual abuse of a child. Whoever posted the comment needs to be gone, instantly, and reported to the police, quickly.

      Sexual banter and teasing among adults is A-OK with me, but ... willing adults only. Not children. Never. Not once. Ever. Period.

      Always good to see that certain people (two so far) think it's cool to call a 9-year-old girl a "cunt". Sexual dysfunction is obviously alive and well in Vancouver.

      If only you had the guts to "come out" and declare your revolting preferences.
