The Onion calls 9 year old Quvenzhane Wallis a C*nt

blackrainblackrain Posts: 26,530 Regulator
The Onion is a routinely funny, usually quick-witted satirical newspaper, but needless to say it did not go over well last night when they called the 9-year-old Oscar-nominee Quvenzhane Wallis the c-word. Someone manning The Onion's Twitter feed sent this tweet out around midnight last night (8:42 PST):



As Buzzfeed's Kate Arthur notes, the tweet stayed up for about an hour, and then was deleted without an explanation after a severe backlash

    I disagree with her name, so I am inclined to believe that the allegations are true.

    Shit actually was kind of funny, if you think about it. But I kinda understand why people are upset.

    anyone who is bothered by something said on The Onion should just go to a cancer facility, find a terminally ill patient, and give them their spot in this world.

    Wallis was born in Houma, Louisiana, the daughter of Qulyndreia, a teacher, and Venjie Wallis, Sr., a truck driver.[1][6][7] "Quven", the first part of her name, combines her parents' first names, while her mother has stated that zhané means "fairy" in Swahili.[8]
    I disagree with her name, so I am inclined to believe that the allegations are true.

    haha He cool man, I wasn't in the streets but

    He was always lil, like 5'3. But a big mouth, couple times nigga had to square up. At the football game he took that stick the drum major had and cracked a nigga over the head w it and broke the stick

    Nigga was cold on the bball court though, I didn't get that starting spot until he stopped coming to school. School let out at 3 we had to stay till the games at 6 so he used to just rap about whatever people talkin about passng time.

    Then he started hanging w C-Loc and them, rappin/hustling whatever, rarely came to school anymore. When he did he would just be Polo down.... come, counting stacks $ at recess, everybody lookin.

    OH and biology class blunt fell out his ear and the teacher tried to grab it. He twist that lady arm grabbed the blunt off the floor n left. lol

    it's a girl

    i'm just talking generally tho. why do folks so frown up these hard to pronounce black names, yet don't feel the same about hard to pronounce foreign names. just a thought i had

    i try to frown upon anyone who isn't like me
