“THE ONION” apologizes to Quvenzhané Wallis via Facebook for calling her a “c*nt”

Many were in shock last night when during the Oscar’s, satirical website “The Onion” blatantly referred to nine year old Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis as a “cunt”. Wallis, nominated for her performance in the movie, “Beasts of the Southern Wild”, is the youngest actor or actress to ever be nominated for the most coveted award in film.

Read the tweet read and retweeted round the world:

“The Onion” came under intense scrutiny after tweeting the super offensive tweet. The tweet was later deleted. After numerous demands and intense pressure for an apology for insulting a 9 YEAR OLD CHILD, the website’s CEO issued an apology on the sites Facebook page.

As a mother of an eight year old child myself, I was in disbelief and infuriated. A Facebook apology just doesn’t seem like enough. Shame on them.
