Apologise for your disrespectful and distasteful headline "Bride and Seek"

This petition had 41,854 supporters

Courier Mail's headline "Bride and Seek" not only displays a trivialisation of violence against women, but is disrespectful to Stephanie Scott’s family and friends, something that is clearly in violation of the newspaper's own code of conduct.

Stephanie Scott is the 30th woman to be murdered in Australia this year. That's more than two women per week, and yet the Courier Mail sees fit to make fun of the disappearance of a beloved young woman with this headline? 

I call on the Courier Mail to issue an official apology to all those affected by this clear lack of human compassion and empathy, namely Stephanie Scott’s family and friends. 

Please share with the hashtag #ShameCourierMail to tell the Courier Mail that jokes about violence against women will never be tolerated by the Australian people now, or ever.
