The Onion Stinks

Someone at The Onion thought Tweeting the "C" word would be funny, and apparently thought directing it at 9-year-old Best Actress Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis. would be funnier.

Caution: The Below Image contains the "C" word and is pretty tasteless.

Moments after the above tweet appeared @TheOnion received a phalanx of tweets condemning the poor judgement.

The Onion deleted the tweet about a hour later and their tweeter feed fell silent.

But then things went crazy, when some wacko, Elizabeth Hawksworth from Canada thought it necessary to point out the Wallis was a women of colour and that this would have never happened to Dakota Fanning.
Cedar's Take: I thought shock humor went out of style with Andrew Dice Clay and Richard Pryor?
