Fire Blatantly Crude Columnist Rosie DiManno

This petition had 2,602 supporters

On April 9th, 2013, Toronto Star columnist Rosie DiManno wrote a column that openly mocked a male victim of sexual assault. Instead of doing any real journalism about the horrible actions of four women who drove a teenager to an abandoned parking lot and assaulted him, DiManno chose to write a crude column laden with jokes about how hilarious it is that the perpetrators were women and the victim was a man. 
This is not the first time DiManno has been wholly cavalier in her coverage of sexual assault. In January when reporting on a case in which an unconscious woman awoke from surgery to find the doctor sexually assaulting her, DiManno's coverage was equally disgusting. The Star chose to go to bat for her, and the result is more of the same. Enough is enough: fire Rosie DiManno.
