The Sun Newspaper

Apologise for the distasteful front cover of Reeva SteenKamp.

I must admit that the front cover was the most shocking and disrespectful thing I have ever seen published. I don't think The Sun could actually stoop any lower.

Displaying Reeva in a bikini, so soon after her death is not only distasteful, it is also disrespectful to her and her family. Nobody deserves this kind of treatment after their death, especially not in these circumstances.

By printing this picture, The Sun are sending out a message to it's readers, that women are worthless pieces of meat, who aren't safe from objectification even after their death.

She deserves respect, as do all other women that The Sun objectify on a daily basis.

 

To:
The Sun Newspaper, 3 Thomas More Square, London, E98 1XY
The complete disregard you have shown for Reeva by plastering a picture of her in a bikini, whilst reporting her death, is inhuman and repugnant.

So I ask you to re-think your morals and apologise immediately!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Sexism in a murder case wherein Reeva was murdered by her boyfriend is shockingly disrespectful and wrong on so many levels. This is NOT amusing. Neither is putting 'muders lover' in apostraphes to signal disbelief to the readers of the article.

      Because a woman had just died and yet she was portrayed as a sexual object for men to drool over. Disgusting!

      Sexism is unfair and women aren't just objects for men to have their way with and ignore when it suits them or because of their status in the society.
