The Onion: Apologise to Quvenzhane Wallis for calling her the C word on twitter

Quvenzhane Wallis is a nine year old Black girl and no one, let alone a child deserves to be called such a terrible slur. The Onion has deleted the tweet, without issuing an apology and this suggests that they don't see that what they did was not only harmful to Quvenzhane but to all little girls. This wasn't just a case of the covert sexism that all little girls and women must face, this was a violent misogynist episode.

To:
Steve Hannah, President and CEO
The Onion
An apology needs to be issued to Quvenzhane Wallis for calling her a violent misogynist slur. No woman should be called a c#unt let alone a nine year old child. Deleting the tweet is not going to make this go away. Women and children deserve far more respect than that and you cannot hide behind comedy and satire on this one.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The use of a misogynistic and gendered slur to attack a 9 year old girl is repugnant to say the least. Very irresponsible and disrespectful.

      it is abhorrent to allow such a racist and sexist slur against a

      child without a comment.

      That word is inappropriate for any woman and when aimed at a child is reprehensible. It's not satire or humor--it's just dusgusting.
