Am i supposed to know who that is?


Could someone pause from their handwringing and tell us who this is and what was (suppose to be) funny about it?

A 9 year old actress that was up for an Oscar last night. It's funny because everyone loves her and she seems like a sweet 9 year old girl. It's the complete opposite of a cunt. It was supposed to be taken like that but people are too busy being outraged.

I think a ton of people got up today, saw that story, and are relieved because now they have some outrageous shite to be angry and offended about. It is like a drug to this country.

People were already outraged that the FLOTUS handed out an award.

Majority people who are outraged would never read the onion anyway. They juast get their hey something we didnt even know existed but we must act offended alerts.

God outdoes terrorist yet again
And showed a pic of flooded nola

People need to stop acting like cunts. Esp men. Emasculated cunt men

How about instead of getting all pissed off, these people try and explain why this little girl ISN'T a cunt? I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary so I'm left to believe that the Onion's tweet was factual.

This is a stoop for the Onion.

Typically their humor is smarter than this.

Simple shock value insults have a place in comedy, but I think its best reserved for a certain audience, not wide broadcast.

A lot of people here think its a matter of someone being a "pussy" or just too easily offended. Sure, a lot of folks hand wringing maybe part of that crowd. Stepping back though, this isn't really different than pointing at, say, a Downs syndrome kid and laughing or calling your grandmother a whore. The Onion should be better than this.

I don't think you get their point. They don't think she's a cunt. It's the complete opposite. If the Onion calls you a good person, you're probably a pedophile.

It wasn't a very clever joke IMO. Onion can do better. What I cant take are the amount of blacks on twitter howling about how this is a race issue

The same people who are pissed off about this are the same people who thought it was ok for Bill Maher to call Sarah Palin the same thing. No woman should ever be called that. I get the attempt at shock humor, just not very smart.

I don't know why cunt is supposedly this terrible word. People who are offended when they're called names like "cunt, bitch, dick, pussy" are weak minded.

If i'm hanging out with my buddies and one of them calls me a c*nt, well it's funny. I call him one back. But if he looks over and calls my wife that, well then game over. I'm not offended by the word, or really any other word personally.

He can't jokingly call your wife a cunt? Does your wife need you to slay the dragon and give her a kiss to release her from an evil spell too?

I still don't know how anyone heard about the comment. People are really using this twitter thing. It baffles me. I don't get it.

I don't get the outrage at all. The Onion is a clear parody site and calling that girl a cunt is obviously sarcasm. We are a sad country.
