    Onion News apologizes

    This is a bit old, but still --

    The satirical fake news called that young actress Quvenzhané Wallis a cunt, or said she was being cunty in one of their [fake news] Tweets, then later broke character to apologize.


    I don't know the actress, and don't follow the Onion regularly. But, was the apology necessary? Did they go too far? Should all things be able to be joked about? Can 9 year olds be cunts? Mind-bending questions of our time.
