The Onion apology:









Dear Readers,


On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.


No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.


The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.


In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible.


Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.



Steve Hannah






Read the Tweet above, then read the apology once again.


If your 9 year old daughter, sister, niece, aunt, best friend, grandchild or godchild were called a cunt, would Mr. Hannah’s apology be enough for you?


Oscar is now a gutter snipe because this satirical publication has allowed one of it’s employees, using The Onion label, to slander and degrade a 9 year old child, who just happens to be a 9 yeah old Black child.


I wonder what Dakota Fanning‘s “people” would say if this had been directed toward her?


Finally I am curious about something else too….I am curious about this: Why are Ms. Sandra Fluke, and other feminist crusaders, silent when Ms. Quvenzhané Wallis , age 9, is called the “C” word that rhymes with PUNT, in tweets by The Onion?


Remember when not so long ago, Rush Limbaugh called Ms. Fluke a slut, and all of America stood up in defense of Ms. Fluke. YET I hear no protest. no public outcry from the caucasian women’s movement. Can it be that a 9 year old Black American female is less of a human being than a female caucasian college student?

  1. I don’t understand why. Why would someone feel that using that term would be a good idea in the first place. Against a little girl on top of it. If I was The Onion, the person who posted that would be relegated to the lowest end of the task list from now on.


    • Amen to everything you said. Ms. Q is an absolutely gorgeous talent and a beautiful young lady. Wish I had 15 minutes in a locked room with the tweeter.
