Satirical website The Onion is in hot water following a tweet it sent out about 9-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis. During Sunday’s Academy Awards broadcast, the official Onion Twitter account posted a harsh message about the “Beasts of the Southern Wild Star” that has the Twitterverse up in arms. “Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a (we won’t use the word but it’s the bad C word), right?,” the tweet read. But users immediately came to Wallis’ defense, slamming the satirical site for the “joke.”
Now, I’ll be one to say that Wallis is 100% overdramatic and really annoying for a 9-year-old. It’s as if she has queue cards or something. I’ve seen her on Ellen and other talk shows and it’s the same stuff. It’s like, you’re 9. Stop acting like this. You’re not an adult yet. Go play with something. But I must agree that the Onion went a little to far.
But if history proves correct, Wallis is a child actor. I doubt we’ll be seeing her much after last night.
