Hollywood Website Calls 9-Year-Old Actress Quvenzhané Wallis A 'C***'

February 25. 2013

Quvenzhané Wallis

We are living in troubled times when a website, the Onion, takes the time out of their day to call a 9-year-old a "c**t." But that's exactly what's happened. The Onion wrote mean comments about 9-year-old Oscar nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, who starred in "Beasts of the Southern Wind "stating of the child star, "Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c*nt, right?"

The site's jaded comments offended many, prompting an apology from its editor, Steve Hannah, "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."
