Ugh… this was not irony! This was just poor taste!
Satirical news outlet The Onion usually garners laughs from their followers, but Sunday night they tweeted an epic fail.
In the Oscar spirit, they mini-blurbed a joke about nine-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild star, Quvenzhané Wallis, saying:
"Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c**t, right? #Oscars2013"
Immediately offensive, the tweet was later deleted but the damage was done.
You just don't label a child a 'C U NEXT TUESDAY!' You just don't!!
Now the company is compiled of a NUMBER of writers, so the joke obviously wasn't something that represents every staffer's taste.
But someone cleared it to represent everyone via Twitter, and now the whole internet thinks The Onion smells super foul right now.
