The Biggest Mistake the Onion Made Last Night Wasn’t Their Bad Joke on Twitter

Quvenzhane Wallis Oscars - P 2013

The Onion was live tweeting the Oscars, and one of the comedians made a tweet that was obviously meant to be intentionally outrageously-stupid.

Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a cunt, right? #Oscars2013

The funny, if it is there, is the absurdity of calling this sweet, innocent kid, who most people never heard of, the most vile of feminine pejoratives.

The ever-stupid Twitter mobs began attacking, so The Onion deleted it. Big mistake. Now the Onion has a new boss – the hypersensitive, less-than-smart Twitterverse.

Want proof of Twitter stupidity? (drum roll)

The award for the most idiotic reaction to the Onion tweet….

…and the Asscar goes to:

(whoever this crunt is)

“Quvenzhane Wallis is a nine year old woman of colour. Let’s let what @TheOnion did sink in and remember that Dakota Fanning never had this.

Vomit.

Hey lady. You pulling the race card at a time like this only serves to keep the races divided, instead of being part of a collective culture that is poked fun at equally without the idiocy of constantly assigning bigoted motives behind every blade of grass. You, and your asinine racial trigger finger, are part of the problem, not the solution, you separatist.

    And she’s supposed to be the next “Annie”. That worked out great for Will Smith in The Wild Wild West.

    Ah. Nine year old girls aren’t women. Unless it’s Menendez asking. Because he always wanted the newest and youngest.

    Or is that my racism doubling down?

    If the bar got any lower it would be in China.

    That’s a(n outdated) geographical allusion, for all the would-be “racism” shouters out there.

    Has anyone else noticed that the “protection” demanded for “people of color” is also similar to the protected class status of the islamics?

    You cannot mock the mulattoed one, nor can you mock “the prophet”!

    I’m the least P/C guy around, but oooh, that word…

    In that context…

    Kinda gives me that douchechills feeling down my spine. I spontaneously recoiled when I read it.

    That’s too low to be called lowbrow, that is.

    That’s just offensive is what it is.

    I admit it. What does the word mean, if someone calls you one.
    I have never understood the use of that would. There are so many better words.
    Ok…. I was called a c-nt, now what?

    @chief, hell yeah!

    Just for a guaranteed laugh, I Groogled her name.
    Wiki:
    “Quvenzhané Wallis was born in Houma, Louisiana, the daughter of Qulyndreia, a teacher, and Venjie Wallis, Sr., a truck driver.
    “Quven”, the first part of her name, combines her parents’ first names, while her mother has stated that zhané means “fairy” in Swahili.”

    Why…am…I…not…surprised?
    It also says that her parents LIED about her age to get the role.

    Remember the days when people would read something offensive, shrug it off, and then move on? No, everything must be an outrage now.

    Onion went too far, but that’s between them and Wallis. What? Our lives are gonna be oh-so-much better if the Onion would only go on the expected apology tour? Really?

    Wait, scratch that. Has Baldwin atoned for what he did last week? If not, then I say the Onion should hold out until he has.

    It is worth noting that many girls suggest that its status as ‘the worst possible swearword’ belies deep misogynistic tendencies”

    I would suggest that this is amended to feminists, restricting this reading to women only is just sexist.
